Introducing the EX-TRACK® CNC, a compact track-mounted oxy-fuel or plasma CNC Profile Cutting System that´s lightweight, portable, and economical.
The EX-TRACK® CNC is the first motor driven model in THERMACUT'S brand new "Value Series" of CNC Profile Cutting Systems, offering affordable profile cutting solutions. The size and weight of the EX-TRACK® CNC make it easy to transport and set up anywhere. This user friendly, oxy-fuel or plasma automated CNC profile cutting system offers complete versatility, and represents an outstanding "value for costs" package.
The EX-TRACK® CNC is equipped with a built-in Color screen, eliminating the need to integrate an external controller to the system. Simple, menu-driven operation is easy to learn and use. The library of 24 common shapes minimizes programming and setup time. Dimensions are easily editable to create custom shapes without any actual programming.
The CNC system recognizes basic M- and G-Code programming; off-line programmed NC files can easily be transferred to the system using a standard USB connection. THERMACUT´S versatile Profile Cutting System is well-suited for both oxy-fuel and plasma cutting processes. A motorized lifter is fitted as standard feature and can carry an oxy-fuel or plasma torch. Arc Voltage Height Control (AVC) automatically maintains a consistent cutting height for the plasma torch. The Tip- touch IHS feature locates the plate surface and sets the correct pierce height during the automated plasma cutting process. It also detects torch crashes by sensing the plate during cutting, and activating the auto shut-off to protect the plasma system. A Cutting Oxygen solenoid valve provides automatic cutting when using an oxy-fuel torch.
The EX-TRACK® CNC delivers accurate, reliable performance. A precision-built, heavy duty guide rail ensures stable motion of the crossbeam, and full support for the cutting torch. Precision linear rails minimize vibration, ensuring accurate cutting throughout the entire job.
The EX-TRACK® CNC can be easily outfitted with an optional THERMACUT® EX-TRAFIRE® plasma package. Using the EX-TRAFIRE® Plasma range, the EX-TRACK® CNC can rapidly cut mild steel and aluminum up to 20 mm thick, or stainless steel up to 15 mm thick (piercing).
The EX-TRACK® CNC is ideal for technical colleges, small fab shops, boat yards, maintenance and repair shops, or for portable use within larger facilities or construction sites.
The EX-TRACK® is available for cutting sizes up to 6.000 x 1.800mm, with a position speed of up to 5.000mm/min.
