ESAB Cutting Systems
: 14 October, 2008  (New Product)
ESAB Cutting Systems’ highly versatile m3 plasma cutting machine now provides the facility to both cut and mark material with the same plasma torch, offering higher productivity levels from a simple-to-use system. Users can now carry out high speed , low cost standard plasma cutting, precision cutting and marking, or just thick plate cutting - all with the a single plasma torch.
The m3 system has both “quality” and “production” cutting modes and can produce precision cuts on material as thin as 2mm and production standard cuts on material up to 160 mm without any sacrifice of quality. The plasma system produces a consistently superior cut face with low dross and requires minimal secondary operations.

The m3 System consists of the Plasma Power Supply, PT-36 Plasma torch, m3 Flow Control and quick change consumables. ESAB Cutting Systems has set a new industry standard with the PT-36 torch that replaces up to three single-purpose torches (heavy plate cutting, precision cutting and marking). The result is greater functionality and quality across a wide range of materials and thicknesses with minimal downtime and consumables cost.

200, 300, 400 and 600 A systems are available with the facility to upgrade at any time. The m3 plasma system is also highly suited to bevelling operations as the PT-36 torch design has extremely high standards of concentricity and accuracy, leading to more consistent bevel angles and part size. The torch is also robust with heavier, thicker nozzles, cups, shields and retainers suited to demanding bevelling.

The m3 system is fully integrated with the Vision CNC Controller, simplifying plasma set-up and operation. This also allows for fully automatic process switching from

cutting to marking mode. The operator simply selects the material type and thickness

and the Vision CNC automatically selects and mixes the optimal start, cut and shield gas combination. Process parameters for most plasma cutting and marking applications are preloaded in the Vision CNC and custom parameter files can be easily created as needed.
