Glimmer plasma cutter

 

Glimmer is a highly efficient cutter for the thermal cutting of steel and other metals using a plasma torch and / or oxy-fuel (oxygen-propane or oxy-acetylene). A series of these machines characterizes very high speed and dynamic movement with keeping high precision.

Thanks to its versatility, rigid structure and very precise drive, ideal for every production. Operation of the cutter is simple and intuitive.

Durability, huge performance, and low operating costs are undoubted advantages of this machine.

System Dynamic

Developed by our engineers, allows to get more advantages from high-speed Glimmer cutter. With higher accelerations and velocity can be achieved double-digit growth in productivity (particularly when a large number of small, complex parts). Also improves the quality of the corners, thanks to shorter impact of high temperatures. This is clearly evident when cutting thin metal sheets. Especially customers producing elements of galvanized steel with a small thickness, eg. manufacturers of ventilation systems will appreciate it.
