The Solution for Fabrication and Job Shop Applications
The Vicon Fabricator-HD is a rugged yet flexible plasma cutting machine. It is the solution for the optimal processing of fabrication or job shop applications. Fast, clean and accurate, this CNC cutting system drastically reduces waste and operating costs resulting in greater profitability.
Machine Electronics and Motion Controller
The solid-state controls and digital drives ensure fast response time and precise motion during the cutting process while the solid-state non-contact proximity sensors protect the drive train while producing your parts at the highest rate possible. Communications from the PC controller to the digital servo drives are through CAT-5 cables to ensure reliability within the system.
Plasma Cutting Torches
When choosing a plasma cutting table, there are many factors. Which need to be considered part application, type and thickness of material to be cut, cut quality, system cost, and overall operating expense. In addition, there are a variety of plasma systems available to the market today ranging from units capable of cutting light gauge to heavy plate in a variety of materials.
The Vicon Fabricator-HD can be custom designed for cutting based on your shop criteria as mentioned above. Our highly trained Vicon sales and technical specialists will eliminate the guesswork and engineer a system utilizing the “right” torch that will enable you to achieve the goals you are looking to accomplish through plasma technology. Through sample parts and time studies, you can see the end results before making a final decision.
At Plasma Automation, we incorporate only systems manufactured by industry leaders in plasma cutting technology. System warranty and service are impeccable and expert advice is always available through developed partnerships with leading torch manufactures.
Electronic Torch Height Control and Collision Protection
To enhance the efficiency of the torch system, the Vicon Fabricator-HD can be equipped with your choice of optional 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 available to protect your torch investment from damage in the event of collision with the material.
ViSoft Cutting Software Program for Windows
The ViSoft Software is menu-driven and user-friendly. Written and supported by Plasma Automation’s experienced team of in-house programming engineers, we are consistently enhancing and updating the Vicon program to continue to bring users the latest and greatest in functionality.
Features include a full array of shapes with user-defined libraries, Super Nest and common line cutting for the ultimate in material utilization, time saving DXF file importing including Auto Kerf and Auto Lead-In, and a true CAD sketch program to name a few.
- Available 5’ X 10’ to 8’ X 40’ to accommodate various shop requirements.
- The heavy duty one piece frame requires no assembly, thus reducing installation time, unlike rail-style machines that have to be assembled on site.
- Torch choice flexibility for cutting a variety of materials ranging from gauge up to 1-1/4” plate.
- Carriage capacity two tooling stations to accommodate various cutting applications.
- High-speed dual drives enable traversing speeds in excess of 2000 ipm while continuing to provide maximum torch cutting speeds.
- Rigid, dual rack and pinion drives with digital motors product precise movement of the machined “solid as a rock” gantry. This results in exceptionally sharp corners and extremely accurate parts.
- Sharp, crisp gantry motion coupled with a rigid, heavy duty table dependably maintains the tightest tolerances.
- State of the art proximity switches and precision digital motors allow for trouble free operation and optimum performance for the life of the machine.
