Mechanized CNC cutting solutions company MultiCam introduced its new 5-axis bevel plasma head.

MultiCam engineered the new 5-axis bevel plasma head for maximum performance by using aluminum castings for weight reduction and rigidity. The new plasma head is not only a compact, durable cutting solution, but its innovative features provide for improved crash protection, as well as ease of maintenance. Its advanced technology provides for maximum table coverage which leads to a more flexible machine.

Although all MultiCam plasma machines have the capability to move simultaneously in the X, Y and Z axes, the new 5-axis bevel plasma head introduces two additional axes of movement, the “phi” and “theta.”  These two axes allow operators to cut complex parts with bevels up to 45 degrees in 2” thick mild steel. The new 5-axis bevel plasma head was designed with the upgrade-ability of existing plasma systems in mind.

All bevel plasma systems come standard with Automatic torch height control (ATHC) along with MultiCam’s EZ-G-Code 5-axis software for use with an existing 3-axis CAD/CAM system. In addition, all machines are fully compatible with SIGMANEST and Hypertherm ProNest 5-axis bevel CAD/CAM systems.
