The unitized PlasMAX cutting system differs from any other plate cutting machine produced by Controlled Automation with its unique all aluminum gantry design for the highest speed accelerations between parts. This allows the PlasMAX combined with its high precision drive system to not only cut faster than any other system, but produce the most critically accurate plasma cut parts possible. The PlasMAX sits as the high speed and high precision cutting choice for material up to 4" (102mm) thick and with maximum material sizes up to 8' (2.5m) wide to 30' (9.2m) long.
With the control systems available today, dual drive systems can be controlled to accuracies unable to be matched by single side drive systems. In addition, dual drives eliminate the high point loading on the guide rails generated by single side drive
machines under acceleration, which lead to guide failure. Dual drive system on either end of the traveling gantry provides machine accuracies to +/- 0.15 mm/m (0.006”/36”)
The plasma automatic gas control sets, monitors and controls gas ﬂows and pressures close to the torch for improved process consistency. The automatic gas control provides rapid switching from one gas process to another. This is common when switching from the cutting process to the marking process.
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.
Our high-precision linear rail is made from hardened steel that is round instead of flat to ensure little debris to reside on the path of linear motion. This allows for smoother travel and less build-up of mill scale, dust and particles that affect cut quality at high accelerated travel speeds the PlasMAX is capable of.
High Definition CuttingPrecision parts are produced using Hypertherm's True Hole process as standard on our HPRxd series machines for AISC approved bolted hole connections for the structural fabricators.
Go Beyond PlasmaOxyfuel cutting is optional for any limitation of the plasma's cutting capacity on your PlasMAX machine. Torch-side holders allow for easy change out of the desired cutting tool.
Smart Tool ChangeIntegrated smart tool holders allow your PlasMAX machine to know when a tool has been positioned in the holding station or ready to cut.
Control SimplicityWe designed our controller with simplicity in mind. Your CPU contains off-the-shelf components for easy maintenance and reliability with a standard PC computer. Online diagnostics are also available for fast and easy remote help by Controlled Automation technicians.
Pull-Out TraysEasy clean-up and access to your parts are a necessity for limiting your material handling time. The PlasMAX system comes standard with easy access pull-out trays for quick clean-up whether it's a water table or dry down-draft table design.
Down-Draft or Water Cutting SurfacesZoned down-draft systems or water tables are available on all model PlasMAX machines. Dross pick-out trays are included in each design for easy clean out.
Safety FeaturesAll emergency stops are located around the perimeter of the machine. Controlled Automation also offers additional systems such as the Allen-Bradley Life-line E-Stop.
