The Voortman V320 is standard equipped with an oxy-fuel torch to cut thick material up to 75 mm.
VACAM controlled proportional gas valves
The oxy-fuel torch is fitted with proportional gas valves which automatically control the gas flow for automatic pre-heating, piercing and cutting. The gas mix is selected based on the thickness and nozzle size from parameters stored in the VACAM software. Pressure and gas flow can be controlled from the VACAM control panel so even heavy parts are easy to produce. The flame ignites automatically so no manual proceedings are required to start the cutting flame. It is possible to interrupt the pre-heating process and start cutting immediately by using the control panel.
Automatic height control
An automatic height console controls the height of the oxy-fuel cutting torch with a capacitive sensor during pre-heating, piercing and cutting.
Combination of processes
The drilling unit can be used to create start holes to eliminate the piercing cycle during oxy-fuel cutting. This creates an even more stable process. Products can also be cut with a combination of oxy-fuel cutting and plasma cutting. For instance, the outer contour of the product is cut with plasma while the inner contour is cut with oxy-fuel. These combinations of processes create the most preferable cutting quality without the interference of an operator.
