Automate your cutting process to reach new productivity levels
In today’s competitive environment, many metal fabrication shops place productivity as a key priority. Regardless if the end product is intricate and detailed or high-volume common parts, the more you cut the more you can sell. Owners understand higher productivity equates to higher profitability. Often metal fabrication shops become complacent with the “normal” way of production and are not aware of potential production gains available with new machinery and automated processes. CNC plasma cutting is automated and provides far greater productivity than hand cutting, and Machitech Automation’s CNC systems provide distinct advantages over the competition.
I’M READY TO AUTOMATE MY FABRICATION, HOW DO I CHOOSE BETWEEN PLASMA CUTTING AND LASER CUTTING?
For metal fabrication shops looking to upgrade to a new automated cutting system, Machitech Automation’s line of CNC plasma cutting systems offering the latest available technology to allow maximum productivity. In a publication by The Fabricator magazine they explained when evaluating productivity, you must “compare cutting speeds” being utilized in the operation. For metal “laser has the fastest cutting speeds on thin material (less than 3/8”)” while plasma cutting provides “the highest productivity” on materials above 3/8”. Plasma also provides coverage over a greater thickness range and type of material including mild steel, aluminum, and stainless.
HOW MACHITECH IS YOUR PARTNER IN YOUR JOURNEY TO BOOST FABRICATION PRODUCTIVITY
Combining the capabilities of today’s plasma systems with Machitech Automation CNC machines provides even greater productivity. Utilizing CNC motion technology over hand cutting process, increases cut speed, helps assure consistency from part to part, and reduces the potential for parts out of tolerance. Machitech’s CNC software is designed for ease of use and automates the cutting process, setting all parameters automatically based on material type, thickness, and amperage. This is the fastest method to go from a part designed in CAD to a finish product. Automated software also helps reduce errors, reducing the need for timely re-work and saving money on scrapped material. Having all parameters set properly also assures the best possible quality, reducing the need for secondary operations.
