Esab > iSeries automated plasma power sources for high precision plasma cutting

United Kingdom, Essex Upshire – Higher productivity and lower cutting cost in plasma cutting



pr22613-iseriesEsab offers iSeries automated plasma power sources for high precision plasma cutting
ESAB has launched the iSeries of power sources for automated plasma cutting as part of its integrated system of components that deliver higher productivity and lower cutting costs. “The iSeries is the most advanced power supply available today,” says Laszlo Hullam, Global Plasma Automation. “This next generation series not only provides exceptional cost-performance benefits, but also allows you to upgrade the unit as you grow.”




Higher productivity and superior cut quality
Featuring HeavyCut® technology to improve cut quality and precision performance, the iSeries superior cut quality enables parts to go directly from the cutting table to welding, painting or assembly without expensive secondary operations. It also provides piercing capacity up to 50 mm at 400A on all materials including stainless steel and aluminum. The iSeries delivers ISO Class 3 or better cuts on any material from gauge to 50 mm thick, noticeably reducing bevel and the need for post-cut finishing.

The Water Mist Secondary (WMS™) process, which incorporates nitrogen as the plasma gas and ordinary tap water for shielding, produces superior cut quality and a lower cost per cut on non-ferrous materials. On stainless steel, the WMS process cuts up to 300 percent faster and lowers cost-per cut by 20 percent or more compared to systems that use Argon-Hydrogen for the plasma gas.




Lowering cost on thicker cuts
The iSeries also lowers the cost per cut by using XTremeLife™ Wear Parts for cutting at 300 and 400 amps. These consumables use a multiple hafnium insert as opposed to a single insert and feature a two-piece tip that runs cooler. Better cooling extends parts life and cut accuracy across the life of the tip, especially when piercing at higher amperages. These combined features can lower operating cost up to 30 percent on mild steel, which in turn reduces cut cost per meter.




The iSeries is available in 100 to 400-amp configurations for cutting plate up to 50mm thick. All models feature a common cabinet and components as well as StepUp™ modular technology, allowing users to increase the output from 100 amps all the way up to 400 amps by adding inverter blocks. Its modular design minimizes parts inventory and repair time. An LED error display indicates machine status to accelerate troubleshooting, and should an inverter block malfunction, cutting can continue with the remaining blocks.
“The iSeries automated plasma cutters work the way our customers work — intelligently,” says Hullam. “The ability to add inverter blocks means fabricators never have to worry about purchasing a system that does not have enough capacity to meet future needs.”
