Multi-carriage capability exploits advanced design. The Trident Plasma and Oxy/Fuel Cutting System from Farley Laserlab is ideally suited to high volume cutting environments such as shipyards, steel service and distribution centers and shops where large parts or large batches of parts need to be processed on a regular basis. The ability to combine the characteristics of high speed profiling necessary for plasma cutting, and the heavy-duty robustness required for thick oxy fuel cutting, is the hallmark off this successful system.
The Trident Plasma and Oxy/Fuel Cutting System can process plate up to 12m wide. This can be in the form of one plate or multiple plates side by side. The system can have up to 20 cutting and marking tools installed. Some Farley LaserLab customers have a number of Trident machines, with different torch configurations, operating over an integrated cutting zone to provide total processing flexibility.
Highly productive installations of those systems are operating in sectors as diverse as road transport equipment, railway rolling stock, shipbuilding, agricultural, earthmoving and mining equipment, civil construction equipment and general heavy fabrication.
In these heavy duty environments where long service life and high throughput with high quality are vital, the Trident Plasma and Oxy/Fuel Cutting System has proved to be robust and reliable enough to process large volumes of plate, three shifts per day, year in year out.
Trident Plasma & Oxy/Fuel Cutting System combines speed and robustness
The fabricated one-piece structure has a very high stiffness to mass ratio five times that of the typical competitor. Developed on state-of-the-art CAD workstations and utilizing finite element, dynamic and kinematic analysis, the Farley LaserLab low rail and elevated beam arrangement ensures maximum stability and optimum alignment, together with easier manual or robotic loading.
Rapid acceleration delivers clean, dross free cutting Full cutting speed is achieved usually within 2mm of commencement of travel. This rapid acceleration rate is critical for clean, dross free cutting, especially on corners. The servo drives feature high gain to further enhance the positional accuracy of the system.
