PCS-LS Series machines from Profile Cutting Systems

The PCS-LS range, available from Profile Cutting Systems , consists of full portal design machines, in which the plates to be cut are placed in between the rails. The machine carriage is of all welded construction with a transverse box beam section and heavy duty modular side supports that run on rail surfaces lower than the cutting table. The main longitudinal drive wheels are mounted on the precision machined side rail. A motorised carriage drives a steel band for the transverse movement of the slave carriage.

Features of the PCS-LS range include:


Effective cutting width: 2.5 - 4.0M
Effective cutting length: -1200mm from total rail length
Torch carriages: Up to 6


Profiling speed: Up to 6M/min
Traverse speed: Up to 6M/min
Machine accuracy (on axis): 05mm (subject to material consistency and temperature stability)
Repeatability: .05mm (subject to material consistency and temperature stability)
Cutting thickness CapacitySingle torch: Up to 250mm (10"); 2 torches up to 200mm (8"); 3 torches up to 150mm (6"); 4 torches up to 100mm (4"); 5 torches up to 50mm (2"); 6 torches up to 40mm (1.5")

Drive System:

Longitudinal Axis: Dual 1.2Nm motors, integrated with custom built grease filled precision gearboxes, combined with constant torque rack loading
Transverse: Single 1.2Nm motor
Bearings: Precision bearings on all axes
Cnc control: As above
ANCA Platemaster CNC: Economical
CPU: 16 Bit
RAM: 210Kb (battery backup)
PLC: External Omron CH200
Monitor: 9" mono graphics display
