Make the “Tactical” Choice When Choosing CNC Plasma Cutting System

Plasma Table Cutting

We chose the name “Tactical” because we believe in having a strategic plan and executing it dynamically and effectively.  It is these characteristics that our CNC plasma cutting systems provide to our customers.  By looking to purchase a CNC plasma cutting system you can bring your parts cutting work in house, rather than outsourcing, and increase your present production, so that you can be the most effective and efficient.  We have used our extensive industry knowledge and experience to design top-of-the-line plasma cutting systems that will stand the test of time.  Our heavy-duty, durable machines are economical but they are not bare-bones, far from it.  In fact, we consider our plasma cutting systems to be “complete” systems.  This is because we supply hardware, software and technical support before, during and after purchase.  We believe in equipping our clients with all they need so that, they too, can be tactical in their business and metal fabrication endeavors.

It is easy to get caught up in the machine, the torch, the capacity and more when purchasing a CNC plasma cutting system but what we have found is that software is reported to be the one part of the purchasing decision process that clients felt they did not do enough research on.  As a result, many people have, in the past, not received what they thought they were getting.  We hear these concerns and, at Tactical CNC, our software is a complete package that contains both CAD drawing capabilities and CAM cutting software that hosts multiple part grid nesting, pre-loaded cutting parameters of your plasma cutter, kerf compensation, lead ins/lead outs, G-Code tool path generator, image conversion to vector file capability and has remote access capabilities.  And, because we believe in complete transparency, we encourage our customers to take it for a virtual test cut.  Our customers can contact us and we will arrange an online tutorial of our software so that you can see how easy it is to create a part and send it to cut right on your computer screen.  This will show customers how easy it is to use our software, right out of the box, so that there is no confusion or wondering, you will know exactly what you are getting when you purchase our CNC plasma cutting system.  Our state-of-the-art software is not the only feature that our CNC plasma cutting systems boast.  Plasma table boundaries are determined by electronic proximity optical sensors, so there is no mechanical switches to fail. These sensors do not make any physical contact and will offer trouble free sensing of the plasma torch boundaries for many years. Our gantry and carriage ride on Dual Vee® bearings giving your Tactical CNC plasma machine a positional accuracy in the effective cutting area of 0.002”. Further, Precision motion of our drive system in the X-axis, Y-axis and Z-axis have zero backlash as they are powered by heavy duty NEMA 34 drive motors. We also use wiring harnesses with solid locking connectors to keep all of electrical wiring neat and able to move easily and smoothly in the Dynatrect® cable track. Also the Z-axis motion is fully enclosed and ride on linear bearings to offer smooth and frictionless motion of the torch mount. The gear track is mounted inversely along the machined surface of the side rails prevent debris collecting there that could cause disturbance or friction that would translate to the quality of the cut. Our gantry is made of a heavy wall extruded aluminum and is machined flat and square so the mounting of the rails and gear track allows for a truly precision and accurate machine. Our end trucks are constructed of heavy duty steel plate to protect the X-axis drive systems on both sides of the table. Tactical CNC offers a water tight frame that can be configured as a water table, down draft table or even a hybrid water/down draft table. Tactical offers you a section of North America’s best plasma cutters from Hypertherm or Victor Thermal Dynamics. If you need help on selecting a plasma system best suited for your needs we would gladly assist you in your decision, just give us a call. On-site training is included and offer life time telephone and e-mail support for the original owner of the Tactical system. Our systems are turn-key, you supply the input power, air and/or mixed gas depending on plasma choice, all connections and exhaust fan and/or filtration for down draft, and easy access for water in the case of water table selection. A complete documentation user manual is supplied that will have electrical/electronic schematics, mechanical drawings, full art number listing and a bill of materials.  When purchasing a CNC plasma cutting system, it is only normal to have questions and we are here to answer any of your questions and provide any support or assistance that we can.  Make the “tactical” choice for your metal fabrication shop and choose a Tactical CNC plasma cutting system.
