Ultra-Cut 130 XT High-Precision Plasma Power Source  offers 30% more power, cuts 20% faster

Thermal Dynamics Automation has introduced the Ultra-Cut 130 XT high-precision plasma power source and new 130-amp XT torch and consumables. The system has a cutting output of 130 amps at 100 percent duty cycle and is optimized for piercing and cutting 3/4 in. (20 mm) steel, stainless and aluminum. Compared to the previous Ultra-Cut 100 XT, it offers 30 percent more power, 20 percent faster cutting speed and 50 percent longer parts life at 130A on mild steel. The Ultra-Cut 130 XT cuts 3/4 in. steel at 52 IPM (20 mm at 1321 mm/min) and 1/2 in. steel at 85 IPM (12 mm at 2159 mm/min). It has a maximum cut and pierce capacity of 1-1/2 in. (40 mm).

“The Ultra-Cut XT 130 offers industry’s best combination of cut quality, cut speed and lowest cost of operation,” says Dirk Ott, VP – Global Mechanized Plasma Systems, Thermal Dynamics Automation. “The Ultra-Cut 130 XT covers the 3/4 in. market — which is about 90 percent of all applications — at a very aggressive price point.” He notes that the Ultra-Cut 130 XT offers a good retrofit opportunity for those with older 100- or 130-amp systems.

Improved Torch

The new 130-amp XT torch features Thermal Dynamics’ patented SpeedLok consumables cartridge, which allows users to change consumables in seconds. An improved torch head alignment in the torch reduces variations between cut sides for better tolerances (due to the swirling plasma gas, one side of the plasma cut inherently has a bevel angle of about 1 degree). To increase flexibility when mounting the torch in a plasma bevel head, Thermal Dynamics offers now also a 3 in. (76 mm) shorter torch mounting tube. The new 130 A   consumables design also reduces oxygen (plasma gas) consumption by 40 percent compared to other systems, further lowering cost of operation.

In addition to O2, plasma gas options include N2, Air, H35 and argon for marking; shielding gas options include O2, air, Nand H20 (WMS – see below). All XT torches use existing parts for underwater cutting when fabricators want to reduce smoke and glare.

The Ultra-Cut 130 XT, coupled with an improved version of Thermal Dynamics Diameter PRO software (found in the iCNC Performance Controller), offers better cut perpendicularity, sharpness and consistency, allowing for outstanding hole quality. Bolts fit even better, and holes require little or no rework.

Ultra-Cut Family Features

The Ultra-Cut 130 XT offers all the familiar features of the Ultra-Cut power sources, including StepUP™ modular power technology that allows 130-, 200- and 300-amp systems to be upgraded to a maximum output power of 400 amps.

“The ability to add inverter blocks means fabricators never have to worry about purchasing a system that does not have enough capacity to meet future needs,” says Ott. “Fabricators can easily and economically upgrade to a more powerful system when they require greater cutting capacity.”

 Like all Ultra-Cut XT units, the Ultra-Cut 130 XT comes with a ScrapCutter option that gives owners the ability to connect a manual 1Torch™ directly to the front of the unit for plasma cutting of plate skeletons to simplify scrap removal. The ScrapCutter option provides a constant 100-amp output, and torch lengths of up to 100 ft. are possible.

The Ultra-Cut 130 XT also cuts aluminum and stainless steel using Thermal Dynamics’ Water Mist Secondary (WMS) process, which incorporates nitrogen as the plasma gas and ordinary tap water to generate the shielding gas. On stainless steel, the WMS process cuts up to 300 percent faster and lowers cost-per-cut by 20 percent or more compared to systems that use H35 for the plasma gas. The WMS high-precision plasma process makes ISO Class 3 cuts or better on stainless steel and aluminum up to 3/4 in.

Thermal Dynamics brings intelligence to the automated plasma table with a suite of fully-integrated components that enable users to orchestrate the fastest cut, best cut and lowest cost per cut regardless of operator experience. Visit www.thermal-dynamics.com to learn more.

Thermal Dynamics Ultra-Cut 600XT and 800XT

Ultra-Cut 600XT and 800XT Enhance Cutting Capacity up to 160mm

Thermal Dynamics’ new 600A and 800A Ultra-Cut XT systems are equipped for production cutting up to 160 mm on stainless steel and aluminium. With the increased cutting power and higher cutting speeds on thinner plates, these systems deliver greater productivity and lower cutting cost.

These systems comprise 2 Ultra-Cut 300XT or 400XT power sources running in parallel to double cutting output. Dedicated consumbales for high-amperage cutting ensure High-Precision cut quality at the best possible cut speeds.

Ultra-Cut 600XT systems offer 600A output with a 100 mm cut capacity.

Ultra-Cut 800XT systems offer 800A output with a 160 mm cut capacity.

Target applications include fabricators and steel services centres cutting sections of stainless steel and aluminium material up to 160 mm in the power generation, pressure vessel, chemical and petrochemical processing industries. Users of 600- and 800-amp systems primarily want faster cutting speeds on non-ferrous metals from 50 mm to 100 mm. E.g., the Ultra-Cut 600XT can cut 75 mm stainless steel at 330 mm/minute.

1 or 2 Torch Operation

An optional switch is available that allows you to rapidly change between 1- and 2-torch operation, giving you the flexibility to cut with either a single torch at up to 600 or 800A, or 2 torches at 300 or 400A.

Putting two plasma torches on the same gantry to cut identical shapes is a common strategy to increase productivity in high-volume applications. Fabricators can double output to cut thicker materials or increase cutting, simply by switching torch consumables. With the quick-change XT-Torch consumables cartridge, users can change consumables in less than 30 seconds.

XT Torch Consumables

XT Torch Consumables
Increased Parts Life Helps Profitability

Unnecessary part changes can cost time and money while a machine is down. High quality consumables reduce downtime, allowing shops to increase their productivity.

Quality consumables guarantee that each cut will be precise, smooth and clean. Consumables that have a longer life will result in a reduction of downtime and increased ROI.

Thermal Dynamics® Automation’s XTremeLife technology delivers the long consumable parts life and high precision cut quality on mild steel that shops want. It delivers excellent consumable parts life over the entire cutting range.

XTremeLife consumables are made to fit the precision XT-Torch. The XT-Torch makes changing cartridges fast and easy—a couple of twists and the unique retaining collar threads release the cartridge. And unlike other torches, no tools are required to change either the torch consumables or major components in the torch head. Downtime is reduced to seconds and you change from one process to another or from one application to another quickly and easily.

Lost production time. Redoing cuts. The price for not using high-quality consumables is more than just the cost of the part itself.

For a better return on investment, look to Thermal Dynamics Automation. High-quality, long-lasting consumables are just a few of the many True Solutions for precision cutting found in the Thermal Dynamics Automation product line.

ADVANTAGES:

Higher-quality, longer life parts reduce downtime and quickly switch from one application to another without changing parts

Offers precision cuts on mild steel, stainless steel, aluminum and other non-ferrous materials

CONSIDERATIONS:

Typical System: Fab-Cut® CNC plasma cutting tables use the Ultra-Cut® XT 100, 200, 300, 400 XT-Torch
