The arch voltage-height control allows to maintain steady the distance between the torch and the sheet-metal during the working cut even in case of undulating surfaces, ensuring highest quality of cut and a greater duration of the consumable torch parts.

The management of the torch height control is directly made by the cnc. It allows the cut also on the inclined surfaces thanks to the rapid reactivity.

Stepping motor

The stepper motors are substantially synchronous motors without brushes constructively made to transform, by means of the control electronics, control pulses into precise movements (steps) mechanical, with extreme simplicity of use, for the majority of cases open loop.

Typically, it is referred to 2-phase stepper motors (200 steps per revolution) and 5 stages (500 steps per revolution).
Used in applications where one wants to exploit greater torque at low speed, it doesn’t require the control position with the engine stopped because perfectly blocked by the very nature of the construction of the engine.

A) 2 phases Stepper Motors in the standard version (torques up to 20 Nm) and high performance version (high torque and efficiency, lower noise and vibrations, torques up to 25 Nm).

C) Stepper systems “closed loop control” with position sensor on the rotor, used to prevent the loss of synchronism in the motor movement.
Torques up to 37 Nm in the version with reducer “harmonic”
24VDC and 200-230 VAC single phase
