Lockformer VulcanPlus Sheet Metal Plasma Cutting System

The Lockformer VulcanPlus Sheet Metal Plasma Cutting System is the benchmark in plasma cutting systems. Loaded with features for unmatched accuracy and precision, this system also has a capacity of 3/8″ and 1/2″ mild steel with a positioning speed of 3,000 IPM Max — the fastest cutting, positioning, and traversing times in the industry. The fixture-welded 3″ x 3″ steel tube construction ensures the frame will be as perfectly aligned today it will be years from now. The virtually indestructible plug-in components are standard and everything is protected — motors and drive systems are never exposed. Plus, the three (3) servo motors, planetary gears, and single-shaft belt are the most accurate in the industry.
