Thermal Dynamics to Demonstrate Market-Leading Plasma Cutting Systems At Schweissen and Schneiden 2017

May 8, 2017

Thermal Dynamics, a world leader in plasma cutting technologies, will be exhibiting on Stand 13E90 in Hall 13 at Schweissen & Schneiden, which takes place at the Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre in, Düsseldorf, Germany from 25-29 September 2017. The company will have live demonstrations and static displays of a number of plasma cutting products and systems, as well as innovative and cost-saving consumables. Engineers from Thermal Dynamics will be available during the exhibition to discuss customers' mild steel and non-ferrous plasma cutting applications.

One of the highlights will be an Ultra-Cut XT system, incorporating an iCNC XT controller, table and extraction/filtration system. Ultra-Cut has been designed to deliver next-generation productivity for precision plasma cutting on ferrous and non-ferrous materials, but with exceptionally high performance on mild steel. StepUp modular power technology means customers can specify the power level required when making a purchase and/or upgrade by adding extra power modules at a later date when their needs evolve. With its built-in intelligence, the iCNC enables users to maximise the performance and productivity of the Ultra-Cut system via the intuitive 15-inch colour touch screen interface.

As well as demonstrating the capability of the Ultra-Cut XT when running in fully automated mode, Thermal Dynamics will also be showing the ScrapCutter manual torch option that boosts productivity by making it quicker to cut the leftover metal skeleton into manageable pieces. Operation is simply by means of the torch trigger, and a built-in safety feature inhibits automated cutting while the torch is being used and also during the 20-second postflow period.

Schweissen & Schneiden will be the first opportunity that most people will have to see the new Thermal Dynamics 200A HeavyCut consumables for oxygen plasma cutting applications. These will be demonstrated on an Ultra-Cut XT system with an, iCNC Performance controller and iHC XT height control system. HeavyCut technology ensures cut quality and precision performance are excellent, meaning that parts can go directly from the cutting table to welding or fabrication without the need for expensive and time-consuming secondary operations. Furthermore, the HeavyCut electrode features multiple hafnium inserts that more than double the life of the electrode, tip and shield cap. This means significantly less downtime is required for replacing consumables, so cutting costs are reduced and productivity is increased.

A further highlight is the newly released A40i next generation air plasma cutting system, which offers higher efficiency, user-friendly large size status display, automatic air control, consumables end-of-life indicator, easier installation, smaller footprint and weight, and marking capabilities.

Thermal Dynamics will also show the latest version of the successful iCNC Performance controller, now for up to 2 plasma and 4 oxy-fuel torches, EtherCAT control, overall faster processor speed and more outputs.

Alongside the live demonstrations Thermal Dynamics will also be exhibiting a wide variety of cut samples. These illustrate the exceptional capability of Thermal Dynamics' market-leading portfolio of plasma cutting products and systems.
