With our 40 years of experience, in a wide range of projects, we have designed our cutting tables to optimize production conditions. Many specialized solutions enhanced our experience in a wide range of production situations, ensuring the best cutting table for your production process. This led to the design of the standard cutting tables the Helios for light applications up to 100 mm, the Apollo for medium applications up to 200 mm and combined plasma and oxy fuel cutting and the Hercules for multi-torch cutting up to 500 mm.
Exhaust extraction in segments, ensures the power of the entire suction process concentrated on the part where the dust and smoke is generated on the cutting table and therefore using minimal power even when the cutting table is not completely covered with product.
The cutting table has different functions where each function is designed to enhance the cutting process with different specific designs:
We have built our cutting tables with the experience of all our customers over 40 years. But improvement is a never ending story. We keep on improving and learn from our customers. Let us know your remarks and experience to enhance our cutting tables.
Dual chamber suction control:
Our suction flaps are fitted with pneumatic cylinders which open and close as the cutting head passes by. When the cutting head is doing its work on one section all other chambers are closed. However when passing the metal separation wall between 2 chambers for a short period of time 2 flaps are opened reducing unwanted dust and smoke.
The pneumatic cylinders are opened and closed by ball valves. These ball valves are operated by a so called sled which is attached to the beam which holds the cutting head. The ball valves have proven very reliable and easy to obtain in every part of the world.
Cutting table assortment:
Our cutting grids consist of a support frame and the interchangeable cutting strips (a consumer component). In this way, when emptying the slag trays, the cutting grid can be gently removed from the bench in small pieces, with the help of a crane. We offer different cutting units for different applications.
This is the standard unit suitable for normal applications up to 100 mm cutting sheets. The upper deck consists of strips of 80 x 5 mm.
The Helios is the standard unit for plasma cutting up to 150 A, or a small gas cutting torch. The distance from the strips is 83 mm. The smaller pieces will remain lodged on the grid. We offer the possibility to deliver a grid of mesh of 50×50 mm that keeps smaller cutting pieces. On the outside we applied a reinforcement tube that absorbs most of the damage brought to the table itself.
Optionally, we can deliver strips of 80 x 8.
We recommend this table at combined plasma / oxy cutting installations, plasma systems with a bevel function or pure oxy cutting torches up to 6 units which regularly cut materials to a thickness of 200 mm. The grid and the inner containers are made from heavier materials and can absorb more heat. The upper deck rests on a UNP 120 profile. On the UNP 120 profile special centring pens are made which make the positioning of the upper deck easier. This will simplify the removal of the upper deck using the lifting eyes considerably. The strips in the upper deck are 80 x 8 mm.
For very heavy applications, we developed the Hercules. This table is made for gas cutting installations till 8 torches where materials to a thickness of 500 mm can be processed. The upper frame rests on a heavy UNP 160 profile, for the construction of the other parts, plate material up to 10 mm is used for optimal heat absorption. The strips in the deck are 100 x 10 mm.
Cutting tables for export:
Our cutting tables are exportable! For these, the cutting table is divided in easy transportable segments. Once delivered on location, they will be placed and bold together and with the floor adjustment legs they can be lined up quite easily, even on uneven floors.
The cutting tables can then very easily be assembled on site by technicians with no prior training, by simply screwing the individual components together. An installation instruction is available upon request. This results in a very quick and simple assembly which saves a lot of costs.
If required we can sent our team to either assist you install the cutting table or do the complete installation on site.
