Dual cooling torch adopted

A nozzle and an electrode are cooled separately by a dual cooling system. Cooling capacity improves and achieves consumable life three times longer than conventional consumables.

Dual cooling torch adopted

Power Block power unit adopted

The robustness is improved by using power block configuration.
Should power unit be failed, the rest of power units(6 blocks 450A) work for cutting.

Power Block power unit adopted

All new torch adopted (30kW type)

The new-style torch which cartridge-ized consumables is adopted as the 30kW specification.
It isn't necessary to put consumables together and it also improved the cutting quality by accuracy improvement of a torch chip.

All new torch adopted (30kW type)

Other functions

Handling and management of consumables

Several times, consumables (Nozzle, Electrode, etc) in a torch are changed from once a day by a plasma guillotine.
It was judged by a worker's confirming the cut tone and the quality of the product after light or cutting at the timing of a change of consumables by plasma in the past.
NC informs a twister of a frequency of renewal of consumables and It can be changed easily by unit-ization of consumables.

*30kW type is cartridge type.

Cutting by the world's largest class output power

Cutting by 525A of the world maximum output becomes possible by 100kW of TFPL as oxygen plasma, and a steel plate of cuttings difficult large thickness 50mm can be cut with the triple rate of the gas-cutting by plasma in the past.

Water table specification

Scatter of the dust can be prevented without dust collector and a steel plate doesn't get rust by using specified anticorrosive.
Removing dross can be done by a water level adjustment. Not necessary to drain water.

High accuracy and rigid frame

Drive mechanism of TFPL adopts the high precision linear guide that is usually used in mother machine.
One drive Motor is installed in the gravity center point of cantilever. This keeps higher precision on longer period of time.

Quick change torch (Optional)

A gas torch can be installed quickly to cut thick material.
This option enable Twister to cut from thin material to 100 mm thickness. Twister is a versatile performer.

User’s voice"TFPL"

from Takebe Industries

In March 2016 Takebe Industries of medium to thick plate processing industry bought to run the TFPL1084 water table specification. Compared with the previous dry type, the water table specification eliminates the installation space of the dust collector and reduces the electricity bill and the filter exchange fee. In addition, the stress on environmental aspects such as filter replacement work has been reduced, and highly appreciated about the water table. The advantage of updating to Twister is that it is possible to cut with confidence without care of magnetic blowing, when cutting special materials such as high tension steel plates. The range of work has expanded. In addition, we received high reputation that the edge quality of the cutting surfaces are higher compared with existing machines and customers' productivity became high.
