Kerf Cost Effective Plasma Cutting Machine

Added to MTDCNC by Kerf Developments Ltd on 15 December 2015

Widely acknowledged as the industry's leading manufacturer of oxy/fuel, plasma and waterjet machine solutions, Kerf Developments has now introduced its latest profile cutting machine, the Plasmaster 3015.

The Rochdale based company has a good reputation for the quality of its high definition plasma cutting product range. However, as with all quality products, the price can occasionally be restrictive for some customers looking for an entry level machine at an affordable level. Until the arrival of the Plasmaster 3015, Kerf catered for the entry level customer with its refurbished second hand stock.

Commenting upon this scenario, Kerf Development's Sales Director, Mr Craig Walsh says: 'The void between entry level machines and our entry level (RUR) high definition plasma cutting machines has until now, been filled partly by our own second hand machines that we have refurbished and sold on. However, we are conscious of the needs of manufacturers, especially in smaller businesses that are looking for a cost effective solution that is based either on the available budget or the workload planned for the machine. The entry level machines that have been available over the years have in the main been designed and developed for the hobbyist or educational markets. With the new Plasmaster, the target applications range from those wanting to cut thin materials such as ductwork, right the way through to heavier duty fabricators needing to cut thicker materials. Kerf has created a robust, efficient and productive machine that appeals to manufacturers on limited budgets.'

The bed of the Plasmaster machine consists of a heavy duty plate support system that contains individual dross bins that can be easily accessed to remove waste material.  It is capable of supporting a plate size of 3.0m by 1.5m and up to 25mm thick. The engineers at Kerf designed the base to be free standing and not connected to the machine frame. This eliminates any potential shock loading issues and significantly enhances the process reliability of the Plasmaster 3015.

'When we developed the latest Plasmaster machine, our target was to utilise products from leading global suppliers. These included the proven Burny control and drive system with Smart HC intelligent height control and compliment this with a proven dependable machine frame. We have used linear bearings for the X, Y and Z axis. The benefit for users is a very smooth cutting motion providing excellent positional accuracy, good cut quality and excellent repeatability' continues Mr Walsh.

'Our brief when developing this machine was to deliver a high quality, flexible and small footprint machine that consists of established and renowned components from Lincoln Electric and Burny. The result is the Plasmaster 3015, which is without doubt, the best in class machine at the entry level of the plasma cutting market. The underlying factor with this machine is that all the component parts are from world leading brand suppliers and the service and support is provided by Kerf. In a low cost market segment where historically after sales parts and service have not feature highly, we are confident that our build quality and service support will really shine through with this machine,' concludes Mr Walsh.
