Esab Cutting Systems introduces the Smart Plasmarc m2-200, a plasma system for heavy-duty mechanized cutting. The system cuts a range of material types and thicknesses using air, oxygen or nitrogen gases. It delivers high productivity piercing and cutting in mild steel ranging to 1.25" (38 mm) thick, with capacity to edge start and sever materials ranging to 2" (50 mm) thick reliably. A 100 percent duty cycle at 200 A enables the system to handle demanding production requirements with high reliability. High cutting speeds improve efficiency and enable more cut parts per hour.

According to the company, Esab’s m2-200 system is more than four times faster on ½" (12-mm) mild steel when compared to oxy-fuel cutting. Quick setups and process changes also contribute to its productivity. The system is designed to provide high-quality cuts with minimal dross, reduced warping and a small heat-affected zone, resulting in fewer secondary operations and a lower per-part cost than oxy-fuel cutting.

A built-in process database features optimized cutting parameters that help to ensure consistent cutting results. Parameters are selected and controlled in one step. Simple and intuitive operator controls reduce the need for operator training, minimize errors and shorten setup time, Esab says. Advanced diagnostics simplify troubleshooting and maintenance. The plasma cutter’s design requires fewer wear parts than similar plasma torches, reducing parts inventory and handling, and saving time and expense. Torch geometry promotes consistent cut quality and long service life.
