  • Hypertherm XPR300® plasma system with marking & scribing

    The new XPR300™ represents the most significant advance in mechanized plasma cutting technology, ever. This next generation system redefines what plasma can do by expanding its capabilities and opportunities in ways never before possible. With unmatched X-Definition™ cut quality on mild steel, stainless steel and aluminum, the new XPR300 increases cut speed, dramatically improves productivity and slashes operating costs by over 50%. New ease-of-use features and engineered system optimization make the XPR300 easier to run with minimal operator intervention, while also ensuring optimal performance and unmatched reliability.

  • Bridge Drive System

    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. We use some of the highest quality gear reducers on the market to reduce backlash when changing directions and to ensure a very long dependable lifespan. The planetary system produces extreme power and performance in a very small package. Helical rack and pinions are used to reduce cogging and vibration that are typical when using straight rack and pinions. When combined in a system, AC servo motors and helical rack and pinion provide smooth motion and high acceleration rates, producing optimum plasma and oxy-fuel accuracy and cut quality.

  • 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. Another advantage of the MultiMAX rail system is that the round shafting allows debris to fall away from the rolling surface.
