Techno Inc. has introduced its new HPLC CNC plasma cutter series. The company says the cutter is a low-cost, operator-friendly machine that is designed for small- to mid-sized shops that wish to bring their manual plasma process to a new level. Customers can choose from three standard table sizes, which can handle up to 1 ¼-inch-thick material. Every HPLC plasma cutter is built from the same heavy-duty welded steel and precision drive system as the company’s CNC routers. Officials also say the fully automated CNC plasma interface has advanced user-friendly features that are meant to help guide users.
