The Vicon Elite high precision plasma cutting system is an extremely rigid, accurate and versatile system with dual precision worm gear drives featuring digital motors that produce precise movement of the all-aluminium tubular gantry.
This, coupled with its sharp crisp motion produces the most accurate parts that only a plasma cutting system can provide, ensuring the end result is a high quality part with superb edge quality.
The gantry can accommodate multiple stations such as plasma torches, oxy torches, scribing tools and drill heads.
Built-in material stops, clean-out doors and a machine status panel are just a few of the plasma cutting machine features that provide trouble-free operation and optimum performance for years to come.
The Vicon Elite plasma cutting system features a standard 5’ X 10’ cutting area with options for up to 10’ X 40’ cutting area to accommodate various shop requirements.
High-tech, precision dual linear guiding and worm gear drives with digital motors produce precise movement of the machined gantry. This results in uncommonly precise cuts and superior round holes.
The sharp, crisp gantry motion coupled with the rigid, heavy-duty table is designed to achieve the tightest tolerances.
The plasma cutting system also has high-speed dual drives that enable traversing speeds in excess of 2000 rpm while continuing to provide maximum torch cutting speeds.
According to Power Machinery Managing Director Ken Christensen, the state-of-the-art proximity switches, customised table stops and fibre optic communication cables allow for easy diagnostics, trouble-free operation and optimum performance for the life of the machine.
He adds that solid-state controls and digital drives ensure fast response time and precise motion while the fibre-optic communication is the most up-to-date way to ensure reliability.
To enhance the efficiency of each torch system, the Vicon Elite plasma cutting system offers choice of electronic torch height control, which maintains a precise cutting height of the torch during the piercing and cutting cycles to further enhance cut quality.
A collision protection device is also added to protect the torch from damage in the event of collision with the material.
In terms of control, the ViSoft software solution that runs the machine is menu-driven and user-friendly.
