5-Axis Bevel Plasma Head Enhances Coverage and Protection
This new 5-axis bevel plasma head from MultiCam introduces two additional axes of movement that allow operators to cut complex parts with bevels up to 45 deg in 2 in thick mild steel.
Global leader in mechanized CNC cutting solutions, MultiCam Inc. (Dallas, TX), introduces its new 5-axis bevel plasma head. “We challenged our Engineers to come up with an improved design for our 5-axis plasma head,” said Tony McGrew, the director of operations, “and we are very pleased with the results.”
MultiCam engineered the new 5-axis bevel plasma head for maximum performance by using aluminum castings for weight reduction and rigidity. The new plasma head is not only a compact, durable cutting solution, but its innovative features provide for improved crash protection, as well as ease of maintenance. Its advanced technology provides for maximum table coverage which leads to a more flexible machine.
Although all MultiCam plasma machines have the capability to move simultaneously in the X, Y and Z axes, the new 5-axis bevel plasma head introduces two additional axes of movement, the “phi” and “theta.” These two axes allow operators to cut complex parts with bevels up to 45 deg in 2 in thick mild steel. The new 5-axis bevel plasma head was designed with the upgrade-ability of existing plasma systems in mind.

All bevel plasma systems come standard with Automatic torch height control (ATHC) along with MultiCam’s EZ-G-Code 5-axis software for use with an existing 3-axis CAD/CAM system. In addition, all machines are fully compatible with SIGMANEST and Hypertherm ProNest 5-axis bevel CAD/CAM systems.
