The V304 plate processing system from Voortman delivers multitorch oxyfuel cutting, plasma straight cutting, and plasma 3-D beveling. It is suitable for repeating and simultaneous cutting jobs and layout marking.
A maximum of six oxyfuel torches, two plasma torches, or a combination can be added to the steel gantry. Both the oxyfuel triple bevel torch and the 3-D plasma torch can perform weld preparations and produce X, Y, K, or V cuts. A strip cutting unit with three oxyfuel torches can be used for cutting strips out of raw plates. For fast marking of steel plates, a stepless rotatable inkjet marking unit can be installed.
The machine will be available with True Hole Technology by Hypertherm® and Contour Cut from Kjellberg® to help improve hole quality. Various nesting programs are offered with the machine, from simple to advanced software, to help optimize time and material usage.
Double synchronous driven servo drives in combination with double linear guides and a helical rack and pinion system deliver high-precision gantry movement. A rubber band covers and protects the linear guides from dust and dirt.
The 3-D plasma bevel unit is controlled by 5 axes. The steel bridge is equipped with linear guides to allow for thermal expansion. Heat shield caps are installed underneath the bridge to prevent unnecessary wear.
