3D CUT ON TURNTABLE

MULTIWIRE CUT

SHAPEWIRE CUT

STANDARD MODELS/CONFIGURATIONS

"Z" = MACHINE WIDTH = CUTTING WIRES' LENGTH

This dimension determines e.g. the max. length of your 2D moulding.

"X" = MACHINE LENGTH

This dimension determines. e.g. the max. length of your column cut on the lathe.

"Y" - MACHINE HEIGHT

This dimension (always around 1220-1300 mm on standard MegaPlot machines) determines the max. height of the EPS block that will fit on the machine.

  "X" OF 130 CM
"SMALL"
"X" OF 240 CM
"MEDIUM"
"X" OF 305 CM
"LARGE"
"Z" OF 130 CM (MW1300) MW 1300 SMALL MW 1300 MEDIUM MW 1300 LARGE
"Z" OF 150 CM (MW1500) MW 1500 SMALL MW 1500 MEDIUM MW 1500 LARGE
"Z" OF 250 CM (MW2500) MW 2500 SMALL MW 2500 MEDIUM MW 2500 LARGE
"Z" OF 300 CM (MW3000) MW 3000 SMALL MW 3000 MEDIUM MW 3000 LARGE

WIRE TENSIONING - 3 OPTIONS

  • MW units with the cutting wires of up to 2500 mm come with spring tensioning in one of two forms - either individual spring tensioners or a threaded rod - please contact us if unsure which one is best for you
  • machines with the cutting wires of 3000 mm or more come with pneumatic wire tensioners for increased wire tension (this is also an optional upgrade for all 2500 mm wide units)
  • note the pneumatic wire tensioning requires a small air compressor (not included in the price)
  • the threaded rod option allows precise wire positioning in 1 mm increments

WIRED HANDHELD/REMOTE CONTROLLER WITH A DISPLAY

  • convenient overview of current machine parameters:
    • wire location
    • wire heating status and power
    • wire tension (independent axis control units)
    • limit switches status
  • on-the-fly adjustment of parameters during a cut: increase/decrease wire temperature, increase/decrease cutting speed
  • start/stop/continue a cut
  • full manual control of machine movement in all axes

TITANIUM WIRE ®

  • best resistant hot wire on the market. Period.
  • custom made for MegaPlot machines to ensure limited stretching and breakage
