Gantry Contour Bevel Plasma & Oxy-fuel Cutting System

  • Gantry Plasma & Oxy-fuel cutting with the built-in Orbital Bevel™ System

    Since our inception in 1986, Controlled Automation has provided quality designed machines that do complex work with controls and components that last through lots of punishment. We built the isoMAX contour bevel machine no different. A machine with amazing capabilities beyond any other on the market and built to last longer than who we compete against and who you compete against. Available up to 23’ft wide and 153’ft long with up to two Orbital™ contour bevel plasma stations and up to 4 oxyfuel torches.


  • Specially designed for the Orbital Contour Bevel™ Plasma System

    The flagship Contour Bevel for Controlled Automation plate machinery was built from the ground up to produce high-precision tolerance contour parts with 710° degrees of rotation and the highest speeds of acceleration. The Orbital contour bevel was developed for a wide range of applications and plate beveling beyond any other system on the market. It is specially engineered for the new isoMAX shape cutting machine for up to two Orbital stations and the GPF-10XC and GPD+ combination drilling and burning systems.

  • Bridge Design

    The machine bridge is a tubular steel section that has been stress relieved after welding, then machined down its length to provide a flat, straight seat for the guide rails. This provides superior accuracy for all tools. The tubular steel section is filled with a material designed to lower its resonant frequency which reduces vibration while high speed carbide drilling. The bridge is driven along the rail system length by use of dual AC servo motors (one on each side) coupled to low backlash planetary gear reducers. Helical rack and pinions are used to reduce cogging and vibration as normally witnessed when using straight rack and pinions.


  • Advanced Plate Nesting

    Controlled Automation offers the cutting edge (no pun intended) in advanced shape nesting software and beyond. Our Nesting software is used throughout all Controlled Automation machinery for easy navigation between machines for the operator. We also allow seamless integration with a variety of communication tools unavailable on any other cutting machine in the world. Controlled Automation imports from all current 3D drafting models (such as Design Data SDS-2 and Tekla detailing software) and communicates with the latest inventory management software (such as FabTrol and FabSuite) to handle the cutting edge of production.


  • Guide rails and wheels

    The bridge is supported by four pivoting wheel assemblies. Each pivoting wheel assembly houses two hardened support wheels for a total of eight wheel supports. By supporting the gantry with eight wheels in contact with the rail surface instead of four, the lives of the wheels, support rail, and wheel bearings are doubled. The wheel assemblies on the guide side are “V” groove wheels which guide the machine on the same path as the guide side rail rolling surface. The wheel assemblies on the opposite side of the gantry are flat across the wheel face. This allows for thermal expansion and compliance between the machine and the rail system interfaced. The rail rolling surfaces are hardened and ground round shafting running the length of each rail providing a very durable long lasting support for the bridge.
