With the properties of good quality, high precision and strong operability, portable CNC cutting machine can cut carbon steel, aluminum, galvanized sheet and other metal plates, cutting ability is comparable with laser cutting when price is much lower. It is widely used in shipbuilding, light industry machinery and other manufacture with the advantages of easy to install, light weight and take less space.
The portable cnc cutter is dual-use for flame cutting and plasma cutting, flame cutting torch can cut mild steel of 5 to 150mm, plasma cutting torch can cut mild steel, aluminum, galvanized sheet of 1 to 30 mm, cutting accuracy depends on the plasma power.
Q. What's the differences between large CNC cutting machine like gantry type and portable CNC cutting machine?
A.Compared to gantry CNC cutting machine, portable cutting machine has below advantages
1. Easy to install, not like gantry type, portable cutter's structure is more simple, just consists of one CNC system, one vertical track, one horizontal track and one cutting torch. After reading the specification, you can easily install the machine.
2. Light weight and portable, the machine is so light that you can even lift it. But you can't lift gantry cutter without a machine. The parts of portable cutter are all demountable so you can take them to anywhere you want.
Portable cutter still has some disadvantages
The durability and cutting precision is not as good as gantry cutter. As portable cutter is light weight and not stationary, there may be a little movement during cutting, that will make the cutting accuracy fall short of gantry type.
