Pegasus plasma cutting provides laser quality cuts at a fraction of the cost

ESAB Group : 01 March, 2002  (New Product)
ESAB Automation's Pegasus precision plasma cutting machine uses the latest precision plasma technology to produce cut parts at laser quality, but at a much lower cost. Pegasus can achieve cutting speeds of 40 metres / minute and cut mild steel up to 20mm and stainless steel or aluminium up to 16mm thick.
ESAB Automation's Pegasus precision plasma cutting machine uses the latest precision plasma technology to produce cut parts at laser quality, but at a much lower cost. Pegasus can achieve cutting speeds of 40 metres / minute and cut mild steel up to 20mm and stainless steel or aluminium up to 16mm thick.

High productivity is promoted through as high speed raising and lowering of the cutting torch, pre-flow and pre-switch of plasma gases, rapid beam travel and high speed CNC information processing. An arc voltage system controls cutting torch height precisely and automatically whilst its rapid up and down travel maximises available cutting time. The design of the torch holding system allows fast consumable change, precise torch alignment and provides collision protection.

The integral plasma arc system constricts the plasma stream and promotes high accuracy, narrow kerf and a high quality cut, low dross, a smooth cut-face, a narrow heat affected zone and a low bevel angle.

High speed operation is achieved in part through the machine's design with its rigid machine beam with linear guides and bearings to maintain accuracy throughout the cutting area. Synchronised digital AC drives in the longitudinal direction provide tight machine control at high cutting speeds.
