Our new 2018 Firecut gold takes everything to a whole new level.
With the ability to accommodate a multi head, multi bridge design with oxyfuel, plasma bevel and rotary pipe cutting, it provides the platform for extremely complex 3D cutting.
EDGE® Connect, Hypertherm’s newest Computer Numeric Control (CNC) platform, delivers unmatched reliability, powerful embedded capabilities, and a high level of customizability. Based on our proprietary, industry-leading Phoenix® CNC platform, the system offers new, advanced software features – including ProNest® CNC automatic nesting delivering SureCut™ technology – along with enhanced hardware.
For easy set up, changes, and upgrades, Edge Connect CNCs can be configured in the field with software specific to the cutting machine application. The easy-to-use system combines advanced cutting performance with an intuitive graphical interface, and supports plasma, oxyfuel, and waterjet applications.
- Windows 10 operating system
- Version 10 Phoenix cnc software
- Pronest automatic nesting option
- Ethercat machine interface for superior drive motion
- Embedded Surecut technology for easy operator use and 3 times the consumable life of competitors’ machines without this technology
- Increased height control accuracy for consistent cut angle
- Magnetic torch breakaway with self-alignment system
- Built in laser pointer for easy plate alignment
- Maximum performance through embedded expertise
- Automatic re-adjustment of the torch height as the electrode wears giving consistent cut angle and three times the consumable life of competitors’ machines without Surecut Technology.
- Cut Pro Wizard for easy job set up and plate alignment without years of experience.
Why choose a City Plasma CNC table
Reduced speed for accurate corners
Unlike most CNC plasma cutters, City plasma doesn’t need to add additional ‘ears’ to corners. City Plasma wil slow down to guarntee each corner is clean adn accurate.
Affordable Heavy Duty CNC Plasma cutter
The FIRECUTXD high performance CNC plasma cutting table combines the highest quality hardware and software to produce near laser cut quality on mild steel. Using Hypertherm’s TrueHole technology and advanced drive tuning techniques, we are able to produce bolt ready holes with a plate thickness to hole diameter ratio of less than one to one.
The FIRECUTXD plasma cutting table incorporates a highly efficient sectional fume table reducing the size of the fume extraction system required, compared to other machines.
Available in compact versions (up to 4m by 2m) and rail mounted versions (up to 12m by 5m). Cut parameters are embedded into the CNC able files using Pronest nesting and cut optimisation software, and loaded onto the machine via Ethernet cable or USB stick, greatly reducing the chance of operator error.
EDGE PRO CNC CONTROL
This is the brains of the system, controlling all aspects of the cutting process. The 15 inch SAW (surface acoustic wave) touch screen provides a reliable operator interface and feedback from all components of the system. The Cutpro Wizard allows new operators to cut production parts in less than 5 minutes. All cutting parameters are built in, eliminating operator error. Network access provides part program loading, remote help and software updates. More about the Edge Pro CNC Control here.
ARC GLIDE TORCH HEIGHT CONTROL
This heavy duty, extremely accurate, height control system increases the number of parts cut per day by 100% and increases the consumable life by 300% without the need for operator intervention. The magnetic torch breakaway, with rapid reinstall and laser pointer for torch alignment, reduces set up times and minimizes down time. Hypernet connectivity allows full control from the CNC and feeds back all data, allowing the remote diagnostics to be accessed from anywhere with Internet connection. Learn more about the Arc Glide torch height control here.
PRONEST NESTING AND CUT OPTIMISATION SOFTWARE
Pronest nesting and cut optimization software is used to embed the part programme with all the required cutting techniques developed over many years. This enable even the novice operator to produce the highest quality plasma cut parts every time.
HIGH PRECISION MOTORS & ENCODERS
Heavy-duty AC servo motors, with high quality encoders, connected to anti-backlash gearboxes and pinions. Controlled using advanced tuning techniques to provide the power and accuracy required to produce near laser cut quality on mild steel. They also provide the acceleration and deceleration required to cut TrueHoles.
HPRXD 130/260/400 AUTO GAS PLASMA CUTTING & MARKING SYSTEMS
Hypertherm’s HPRXD auto gas plasma cutting and marking systems are recognised worldwide for their cut quality, reliability and low running costs, which is probably why they have been the market leader for so many years.
The argon marking feature of the auto gas systems allows seamless switching between marking and cutting without the need to change consumables. Profiles can be marked with identification numbers and letters before being cut out. This feature has numerous other uses, including marking bend lines and creating templates for the position of welded parts.
ENCLOSED RACKS AND LINEAR SLIDES
Our long axis racks and linear slides are protected from sparks and falling debris which could otherwise cause expensive damage, and therefore greatly reduce the need for regulator maintenance.
AUTOMATIC BEARING AND SLIDE LUBRICATION
Specially formulated lubricating oil is pumped automatically to every linear bearing, greatly extending the life of expensive parts and ensuring smooth motion, essential for high quality cutting.
HEAVY DUTY BRIDGE WITH HEAT COMPENSATION
By mounting one end of the bridge on bearings we ensure that it doesn’t twist if the table expands due to the heat produced by the cutting process. This ensures parts being cut square.
FUME EXTRACTION SYSTEM
High quality fume extraction units with fully automatic filter cleaning are available to suit all sizes of machine and cutting system.
BEVEL & ROTARY PIPE
Bevel and rotary pipe options are available separately or in combination to allow very complex 3D cutting for numerous applications.
OXYFUEL CUTTING TORCH
We can supply all our machines fitted with a fully automatic oxyfuel torch to increase the mild steel cut capacity to 150mm.
