Kerf Developments Premiere with expanded plasma cutting machines portfolio
UK – Kerf will be launching the latest additions and developments to its product portfolio, including the Plasmaster 3015 and RUR2500 at Mach.
The new Plasmaster 3015 and 3015HD (heavy duty) are described as entry-level plasma cutting machines, designed by Kerf and built with 'best-class' components. The machine at MACH will be fitted with a Tomahawk plasma unit which can also be used for manual hand cutting. Until now, Kerf has catered for entry level customers on restricted budgets with its refurbished second hand stock. The 3015 gives end users the option of a cost-effective machine and fills the void between the entry level RUR range of high definition plasma cutting machines and the second hand options.
The 3015 will be shown with a 3 x 1.5 m bed which can load steel sheets up to 12 mm thick. The 3015HD machine can support sheet thicknesses up to 25 mm. Applications range from cutting thin materials such as ductwork through to heavy duty fabricators. The bed of the machine consists of a heavy-duty plate support system containing individual dross bins for the easy removal of waste material. Its base is free-standing and not connected to the machine frame which eliminates potential shock loading issues and improves process reliability, Kerf notes. The machine is equipped with the company's Burny control and drive system with Smart HC intelligent height control and has linear bearings on the X, Y and Z axes.
The RUR cutting machine with Lincoln Electric Spirit plasma units and ultrasharp cutting will also be exhibited. The company says this is an alternative to processes such as waterjet and laser-cutting.
