Benefit from magnetic torch mounting


SHARED INNOVATIONS

Because both the plasma and the oxy-fuel torches use the same mounting, they also share all the benefits that come from the built-in technologies. Such as, for example, the fast height control and True Volt.

NO CALLIBRATION NEEDED

This is a magnetic mounting with only 2 perfectly attuned drives, independent of any form of tolerances with no calibration required. In addition to these advantages, the magnetic mounting also influences the speed in the production process.

MAGNETIC TORCH MOUNTING

BENEFITS OVERVIEW

Maximize consumable life

To ensure a most optimal cutting quality and the highest consumable life, you want your nozzle at a fixed height relative to the plate. Therefore our in-house developed TrueVolt Technology instantly measures the arc voltage and corrects based on the real-time consumable wear, keeping that distance intact. When you can only use predefined values you will notice that the head slowly moves towards the plate to keep meeting that value. A short distance can quickly lead to collision and even faster wear of consumables. With TrueVolt we ensure that consumable wear does not affect the cutting process, giving you optimal cutting results and extended use of your consumables.

Fastest height control

Meet the fastest height control in the market. In order to properly correct for plate height deviations, the torch will touch and measure the plate for each new cut. Depending on the desired quality, this can be reduced or increased. It is unavoidable that cutting high-quality holes leads to a relatively large number of plate measurements on a daily basis. Measurements on a small product with four holes even indicate that more than 30% of the process time was taken up with movements. Our fastest height measurement then provides you with maximum achievable production time possible.

Reduced cut-to-cut time

Voortman's Instant Cut Technology enables you to reduce cut-to-cut time by greatly reducing the amount of initial height sensing. At the same time plasma pre-gas is already initiated during movement and retraction height of the torch is kept to a minimum. This combination of features ensures a strong increase in production speed. The difference is considerable, especially with small products and holes.

EASY RESTART AFTER COLLISION

When collision occurs your operator is able to remount the torch with a magnetic system to get the machine up and running in no time. And with the same ease, you can quickly switch between different cutting thicknesses by simply exchanging the torches.

No calibration and lowered consumable costs

There are lots of variables which together contribute to the optimum cutting quality. A great deal is contributed by the design of the bevel unit, consisting of only 2 drives. These parts are perfectly attuned to each other in the manufacturing process. The mounting of this unit is independent of any form of tolerances and requires no calibration. Normally, if you want multiple parts to be aligned, it requires a lot of calibration from you or even from external service technicians. Especially when cutting with 2 bevel units that share the same X-rail, calibration corrections cannot apply to both. That is one of the reasons our mechanical bevel design is preferred. With the synchronized axis and accurate rack and pinion movements, you have full control over the cutting quality and cutting costs. Many deal with high consumable costs due to a incorrect flame height. Our mechanical bevel design ensures a perfect height with low consumable costs and perfect cutting quality with no need for calibration. Convert downtime to up-time with your Voortman machine.

Continuous quality with TrueVolt

To ensure a most optimal cutting quality and the highest consumable life, you want your nozzle at a fixed height relative to the plate. Therefore our in-house developed TrueVolt Technology instantly measures the arc voltage and corrects based on the real-time consumable wear, keeping that distance intact. When you can only use predefined values you will notice that the head slowly moves towards the plate to keep meeting that value. A short distance can quickly lead to collision and even faster wear of consumables. With TrueVolt we ensure that consumable wear does not affect the cutting process, giving you optimal cutting results and extended use of your consumables.

Perfect cutting height and lowered costs

The synchronized and accurate helical rack and pinion movements provides our machine with very dynamic use of all axes simultaneously for cutting movements. Precisely because of that unprecedented dynamics, you are not dependent on a fixed cutting height. A fixed cutting height equals a higher arc voltage and results in a higher consumption of consumables, higher power consumption and a lower bevel cut quality. Integrating accurate machine movements enables full control over motion speed and cutting heights for the highest cutting quality and has proven to save more than 1.500 euros annually.
