Eddison & Wanless benefits from total flexibility of new EPP 200 Precision Plasma

ESAB Group : 12 September, 2005  (Company News)
Eddison and Wanless, fabricating engineers specialising in products for the electrical supply industry, are long standing users of plasma cutting machines supplied by ESAB Automation.
Eddison and Wanless, fabricating engineers specialising in products for the electrical supply industry, are long standing users of plasma cutting machines supplied by ESAB Automation. Their latest investment is a Suparex plasma machine with ESAB's new EPP 200 power source and two torch system. It provides the capability to cut and mark materials with the same torch. The company can now tandem load the plasma cutting machine, optimising the actual cutting time. Cutting and marking speeds have improved whilst the accuracy of marking is improved due to cutting and marking with the same torch.

For the fabrication of a variety of electrical products including power transformer tanks, transformer ancillaries, holding vessels and radiators, Eddison & Wanless uses a range of mild steel (2mm-30mm), stainless steel (3mm -25mm) and aluminium (3mm-30mm).

The EPP 200 can be fitted with a combination of torches for plasma marking and cutting. Eddison & Wanless' two torch system includes a 100A precision PT-24 torch for cutting and marking operations. The second 200A PT-600 torch is used for cutting thicker materials precisely. This combination gives Eddison and Wanless total flexibility. Not only do the two torches cover the complete thickness of materials, but also there is no need to change consumables. This results in valued time saving and minimisation of down-time.

The EPP 200 also provides the company with other significant advantages. Set up is a very simple one-touch process and the database of the EPP 200 includes all the pre-set cutting parameters.

As far as Managing Director Phil Wilbraham is concerned, there is no more suitable or flexible alternative than the ESAB solution. 'The machine fully meets our demanding requirements and ESAB provides all the back-up technical support we need,' he says.
