Used for cutting steel or other material, robotic plasma cutting offers a way for industries to increase cycle times and quality. This Motoman UP6XRC robot is fully integrated in this plasma cutting application to cut through thick, 5/8" steel. The plasma is produced from high velocity ionized gas that conducts the charge. The electric charge melts and cuts the work piece. The high velocity gas in this system is composed of oxygen and air and blows the molten metal away from the part, leaving a clean, smooth cut. The automated plasma cutting process saves a company time by reducing the manual labor usually involved in cutting steel.
With XRC Controls and Teach Pendant, the operator can program the robot to make precision cuts in steel up to 3 inches thick. RobotWorx integrates industrial robot arm to perform robotic plasma cutting. Contact us today to learn more!
