ESAB Cutting Systems has launched the Combirex plasma-arc and oxy-fuel gas profile cutting machine designed to meet the needs of job shops and manufacturers for maintenance work and parts production.

The Combirex features a high-performance drive system and a precision, heavy-duty gantry.

This provides a solid foundation for accurate cutting over working widths up to 3500mm.

Combined with an ESAB Vision 51 control system and Columbus programming software, the Combirex can be used at the centre of an automated production system.

The Combirex is a gantry cutting machine designed to meet the needs of job shops and manufacturers of all sizes for both maintenance work or parts production in both plasma-arc and oxy-fuel gas cutting modes.

Its compact design saves floor space and its mid-rail design accommodates easy loading and unloading, according to ESAB.

The working length can easily be extended at a later date as required and other upgrades are easy due to the modular design, allowing the machine to be matched to individual requirements.

To handle a variety of cutting applications, the Combirex can be equipped with plasma-arc, or up to four oxy-fuel gas torches, or a combination of one plasma-arc and up to three oxy-fuel gas torches.

The ability to carry up to four torch carriages is said to offer flexibility and versatility in an array of cutting applications.

In conjunction with ESAB’s m3 plasma-arc system, it can produce precision plasma-arc cuts on sheet metal up to 60mm thick plate.

With oxy-fuel gas torches, it can slice through mild steel plate up to 200mm thick.

The gantry is available in sizes to cover plate widths up to 3500mm wide.

The dual-side drive gantry features precision rack-and-pinion and heavy duty gearboxes to allow high positioning speeds of up to 20,000mm/min.

With a linear guiding system and digital AC drives, the machine is said to achieve high dynamic accuracy over the entire cutting area.
