For metal workers who need to easily and repeatably bevel or vertically cut metal, the DC-IV MAX is a unique turnkey solution that combines a purpose built tractor and controller from Bug-O Systems with a Powermax® series or MAXPRO® plasma cutting system from Hypertherm®.
As with all Bug-O equipment, you can expect the following advantages:
Increase Productivity – Tool-less setup reduces machine down time, increases operator efficiency, and eliminates lost time due to complicated setups. Bevel and rail alignments offer fast, repeatable setup for both speed and precision.
Reduce Material Handling – Lightweight, compact footprint allows for the machine to be brought to the workpiece both inside the shop and out in the field.
Improve Quality – Precision speed control along with the rigid aluminum track-based system, provides smooth torch motion at optimal travel speeds for high quality plasma cuts. With travel speeds of 0-100 inches per minute (0-254 cm/min) the DC-IV Max has the operating range needed for plasma cutting and gouging with the Powermax® and MAXPRO® plasma systems.
Reduce Distortion and Cut Edge Prep – As compared to oxy fuel cutting the higher torch travel speeds for plasma cutting reduces the risk of metal distortion. Utilizing the supplied Hypertherm® cut charts for optimal setup and operation will increase operator productivity reducing the rework, grinding, and cleanup required after the cut has been made.
