CNC plate cutting machine
The Programmable Gantry System provides coordinated motion in two axis, using three drives: two synchronized motors drive the main carriages along the X-axis, and one drives the Y-axis crossbeam carriage. The machine can be easily programmed to repeat any contour or pattern for either cutting or welding applications. A handheld terminal supplied with the machine is used to program the required shape and operation sequence. Other functions besides moves can be programmed, such as starts, stops, delays, repeats and rapid traverse. Twenty programs can be stored in machine memory at any one time. A PC option is available which includes a connecting cable and a software program. With this, the operator can create any number of shapes on a PC and store them on disk. Selected shapes can then be downloaded into the machine as needed.
