Messer Cutting Systems said it has answered the call from manufacturers that have been demanding a faster, more accurate way of producing cut parts.

Messer’s MetalMaster Xcel features traversing speeds of 3,000 IPM, a robust design, with high acceleration drives. Multiple tools can be added including plasma beveling, oxyfuel, combination plasma/fiber laser cutting, drilling and marking coupled with OmniWin software.

The MetalMaster Xcel is two machines in one. Using a plasma/fiber laser combination cut on the same piece part will increase productivity by allowing critical internal features to be cut with the fiber laser and external features to be cut with the plasma torch all without moving the part to another piece of equipment, Messer explained.

According to the manufacturer, the MetalMaster Xcel features 1,800 IPM at .5g lifters can accommodate all types of varying plate conditions. This machine features patented Slagger self-cleaning table yielding maximum performance by reducing table cleaning time from hours to minutes. Coupled with professional menu driven, feature rich, "Global Control Plus" CNC easily makes every machine operator an expert.

Messer Cutting Systems will unveil the new MetalMaster Xcel on November 11, at the 2014 Fabtech Expo in Atlanta, Georgia. There, Messer will provide an opportunity for participants to watch live bevel cutting, drilling and marking demonstrations and participate in interactive touch screen OmniWin software demonstration. Messer will also show the MPC2000 cutting machine, which features the Infinity Rotator for plasma bevel cutting, a heavy-duty drill with two inch drilling, an ALFA oxyfuel torch and Telesis Pinstamp for plate marking.

"We anticipate an excellent market welcome with our new MetalMaster Xcel plasma/fiber laser combination machine," said Joerg Toberna Director of Marketing. "This new machine is going to rock the cutting industry as we know it. We could not be more excited and are eager to share it with the world."
