AKS Cutting Systems plasma cutting systems are capable of cutting of ½ in. diameter bolt ready holes in 1 in. thick mild steel.
This significantly exceeds the current industry standards of plasma cutting cut bolt ready holes in mild steel with a 1:1 ratio of hole diameter to material thickness, claims the company.
This break though in plasma hole cutting technology is enabled by the superior and responsive motion capability of the AKS precision plasma cutting system in conjunction with the AKS robo-kut bevel head. This extremely responsive motion system can bevel small holes compensating for the inherent kerf angle associated with current plasma cutting technology. AKS’s plasma, plate and tube processing system is availabe from Advanced Fabricating Soltuions, Mississuaga, ON.
