Kerf Developments prides itself on being able to recognise which cutting units are suitable for which applications, with an experienced team of engineers always available to advise on product suitability. The RUR profile cutting machine range, for instance, is an ideal choice for high production demand applications.
With the RUR range of machines, customers are able to configure machine widths and lengths to suit their own requirements. This could be to allow for larger plate sizes, or to provide the capability to load/unload and cut plates simultaneously in order to minimise downtime.
The RUR machine frame is constructed from a mild steel fabricated design, ultrasonically stress relieved and manufactured to highly accurate tolerances. The machine is driven through twin side rack and pinion drives by servo motors and planetary gearboxes which are digitally synchronised. The rail system is manufactured using precision ground bar mounted on box section which is fitted on to thick walled fabricated track stands.
The RUR range is available for conventional and high definition plasma, and can be configured with combined plasma and oxy-fuel heads.
Plasma cutting has long been seen as a low cost alternative to oxy-fuel and laser profiling where cut angle was not an issue. Recent developments in the high precision/high definition plasma process have significantly improved the quality and capabilities of plasma cutting, making it a more versatile and accurate option than ever before.
Parameters associated with cutting a wide range of materials and thicknesses such as cutting speed, gas types and gas pressures can now be controlled automatically by Kerf equipment, ensuring a consistently high cut quality.
From the expandable flexible rail design of the RUR and RUM large format machines through to the compact Spitfire, for use where space is at a premium, Kerf can provide a suitable cost effective plasma cutting solution.
