Process plate and tubing on one tableJanuary 17, 2012 Written by Rob Colman
AKS Cutting Systems' Accu-Kut plasma allows you to process plate and tubing on the same machine. The five axis motion can process round, square or rectangular tubing.
At Fabtech 2011 in Chicago, AKS demonstrated live cutting of ½ in. diameter bolt ready holes in 1 in. thick mild steel. This 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.
