Laguna’s new CNC Plasma Cutter has been engineered to provide an extremely rigid platform capable of performing the most demanding jobs at a low initial investment cost. Designed for operational simplicity and incorporating features that ensure extremely accurate results, Laguna’s CNC Plasma cutter is a “game-changer.”
“One of our engineering goals in developing the Laguna Smartshop CNC frame structure was to develop a “scalable” design that could be used with a number of cutting platforms,” said Torben Helshoj, President of Laguna Tools. “The new Laguna Plasma CNC is a great example of that concept in action.” Starting from the ground up, Laguna’s new CNC Plasma features a robust one-piece welded tubular steel frame that is heat treated and stress relieved. Precision-ground ball screws, helical racks and industrial linear guides ensure accuracy, repeatability and edge finish. Laguna’s frame design is a significant improvement over the lightweight bolt-together designs typically found machines at this price level.
Operational simplicity and advanced machine controls are achieved through an industrial control provided by B&R Automation. High-end features such as automatic torch height control, break-away torch holder with sensor, and programmable pierce time delay, to name a few, are all standard features designed into the new machine.
