Cutting machine incorporates six oxyfuel torches,
two plasma torches
The V304 plate processing system from Voortman delivers multitorch oxyfuel
cutting, plasma straight cutting, and plasma 3-D beveling. It is suitable for repeating and simultaneous cutting jobs and layout marking.
A maximum of six oxyfuel torches, two plasma torches, or a combination
can be added to the steel gantry. Both the oxyfuel triple bevel torch and the
3-D plasma torch can perform weld preparations and produce X, Y, K, or V
cuts. A strip cutting unit with three oxyfuel torches can be used for cutting
strips out of raw plates. For fast marking of steel plates, a stepless, rotatable
inkjet marking unit can be installed.
The machine will be available with True Hole Technology by Hypertherm®
and Contour Cut from Kjellberg® to help improve hole quality. Various nesting
programs are offered with the machine, from simple to advanced software, to
help optimize time and material usage.
Double synchronous-driven servo drives in combination with double linear
guides and helical rack and pinion system deliver high-precision gantry movement. A rubber band covers and protects the linear guides from dust and dirt.
The 3-D plasma bevel unit is controlled by 5 axes. The steel bridge is equipped
with linear guides to allow for thermal expansion. Heat shield caps are installed
underneath the bridge to prevent unnecessary wear.

Bimetal band saw blade made to handle
LENOX® has introduced the Contestor XL™ bimetal band saw blade, engineered
for sawing large, difficult-to-cut metals.
The blade features a high-speed steel edge wire that increases tooth hardness for improved abrasive wear resistance. The blade’s patent-pending chip-controlling design helps reduce heat and wear, while its shallow gullet shape
helps maximize beam strength, the manufacturer reports.
Applications include mold steels, stainless steels, tool steels, titanium alloys,
and nickel-based alloys.

Single-stage gas pressure regulator delivers
correct flow all day without adjustment
Linde Gases has announced the launch of the
SMOOTHFLO™ single-stage gas pressure regulator. According to the manufacturer, the unit delivers optimal flow throughout the day, with only
three turns of the pressure-adjusting knob on initial setup. This is achieved via a lever-activated, encapsulated valve with the company’s proprietary
Dynamic Quadflow Stability Control technology.
A breakoff inlet stem helps ensure that if a cylinder is damaged by a fall, the excess-flow valve will seal off any gas discharge
automatically. The piston-embedded safety valve helps prevent contaminants
from blocking or entering the valve. Piston-driven technology also produces
pressure stability at high flow rates.
Patented panel-mounted gauges are recessed and integrated into the regulator, helping to reduce instances of potential pressure gauge damage. The
regulator’s mirror configuration helps prevent hose overlap and reduces the
potential risk of oxygen/acetylene fires.
The outer cladding is manufactured from an impact-resistant, fire-retardant,
nylon-based material to protect the pressure gauge.
