Shown with optional extended gantry and PC controller cabinet.
When it comes to high end precision cutting systems, no other solution brings more to the table than the Vicon ELITE high precision plasma cutting system. The only feature more impressive than its accuracy is the incredible versatility of its options. At last there is a hardworking, reliable, precision system that also brings flexibility to your business. With precision plasma, oxy fuel, scribing, drilling, and dual cutting head options, the Elite expands your working envelope and enhances profitability.
Features and Benefits
1.) Standard 5’ X 10’ cutting area with options for up to 10’ X 40’ cutting area to accommodate various shop requirements
2.) High-tech, precision dual linear guiding and worm gear drives with digital motors produce precise movement of the machined “solid as a rock” gantry resulting in uncommonly precise cuts and superior round holes.
3.) Sharp, crisp gantry motion, coupled with the rigid, heavy-duty table, dependably achieve the tightest tolerances.
4.) High-speed dual drives enable traversing speeds in excess of 2000 ipm while continuing to provide maximum torch cutting speeds.
5.) State-of-the-Art proximity switches, customized table stops, and fiber optic communication cables allow for easy diagnostics, trouble free operation, and optimum performance for the life of the machine
Machine Electronics and Motion ControllerSolid-state controls and digital drives ensure fast response time and precise motion.
The fiber-optic communication is the most up to date way to accomplish reliability.
Solid-state proximity sensors are non-contact keeping them wear free.
The automatic exhaust signal will save energy costs and free you from the worry of forgetting to turn the exhaust on.
The automatic torch lift allows for high speed traversing in between cut parts.
Precision Cutting VersatilityWhen choosing a precision cutting system, there are many factors which need to be considered - part application, type and thickness of material to be cut, cut quality, system cost, consumable cost, and overall operating expense.
In addition, there are a variety of precision systems available to the market today - ranging from manual gas consoles to automatic gas consoles, and units capable of cutting from gauge material to 1.25" plate and above.
The VICON Elite can be custom designed for cutting based on shop criteria as mentioned above. Or our highly trained VICON sales and technical specialists will eliminate the guesswork and engineer a system utilizing the "right" torch that will enable you to achieve the goals you are looking to accomplish through plasma cutting technology. Through sample parts and time studies, you can see the end results before making a final decision.
At Plasma Automation, we incorporate only systems manufactured by the industry leaders in plasma cutting technology. System warranty and service are impeccable and expert advise is always available through developed partnerships with torch manufacturers.
Electronic Torch Height Control and Collision Protection
To enhance the efficiency of each torch system, the Vicon Elite incorporates your choice of electronic torch height control, which maintains a precise cutting height of the torch during the piercing and cutting cycles to further enhance cut quality.
A collision protection device is also added to protect your torch investment from damage in the event of collision with the material.
