Plasma Cutting Systems: Products

Combination Plasma Head is Ideal for Job Shops

Each plasma head is independently programmable, allowing the plasma system to economically cut gauge steel using low amperage consumables, while still able to tackle heavy plate steel with high-definition plasma precision. 
The combination plasma head for MultiCam 3000 and 6000 series CNC plasma machines uses a Hypertherm Powermax mechanized plasma head mounted beside a high-definition Hypertherm torch that is ideal for production cutting of diverse materials.

Portable, Economical Oxyfuel/Plasma Cutting System

Crossbow features a motorized lifter to support either oxyfuel or plasma torches. The Arc Voltage Height Control ensures the plasma torch will automatically maintain a consistent cutting height. Ohmic touch initial height sensing finds the plate surface, sets the piercing height during automated plasma cutting, detects torch crashes by sensing the plate during cutting and shuts down the plasma system accordingly. 
The compact Crossbow oxyfuel/plasma CNC cutting system from ESAB is ideal for trade schools, small fab shops, maintenance and repair shops, or for portable use within large facilities or at construction sites.

5-Axis Bevel Plasma Head Enhances Coverage and Protection

The new 5-axis 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.
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.
