SeriesOne Overview

We developed the SeriesOne plasma table after some dedicated research and the realization that fully functional table in the $10,000 price range did not exist, and to this day the SeriesOne is the only table available that includes everything you need including a complete table, automatic torch height control, controller software, and CAM software. We even include a shape generation program offered by other manufacturers at a considerable cost. This program is built into our controller and allows you cut circles, ovals, squares, triangles, rectangles, rounded corner rectangles, diamonds, polygons, slots and stars right from the controller screen.

When you buy a TruCut, the extras are not extra.

Some manufacturers advertise low "starting at" pricing to get you hooked and by the time you have a usable table, you're into it for $16,000, $17,000 or even $20,000. We offer options for the SeriesOne, but everything essential to the reliable operation of the machine is included in our low price. The SeriesOne gives you all this, as well as an all steel welded gantry and heavy steel frame.

The SeriesOne system is 100% non-proprietary. That means no expensive replacement parts only available through one source and no recurring software license fees or annual service contracts. All software we provide is widely supported either by us, through Internet user forums or by the software designers themselves. We realize that a low purchase price is pointless unless the cost of ownership is also low. Don't be fooled by manufacturers offering low prices just to find out that you have to buy a service contract just to get them to answer the phone.

We are an OEM distributor for Thermal Dynamics and Hypertherm automation cutting equipment. If you would like to integrate an automation plasma power supply into your new table, we can help. We offer discounts on automation plasma power supplies when purchase with a table. See our web page featuring the CutMaster A series plasma units.

SeriesOne Features

x
x Unlike most machines in it's class, the SeriesOne features an all steel welded gantry delivering rigidity and stability not possible with an aluminum gantry. While we designed the SeriesOne as a plasma cutting system, our steel gantry offers the stability required to resist the cutting forces involved in routing as well.
x
x X and Y axes cable carriers keep power and drive cable and torch leads secure and out of the way. Cable carriers are standard equipment on every machine.

All SeriesOne table come standard with a spring style break-away torch mount. We use two springs to secure the torch that are strong enough to hold the torch securely during normal use, but not so strong that they will not flex in the event of a torch crash. The torch rests in a V which means that after a crash, it returns to exactly the same position it was in prior to the crash.

The series One torch mount also included an integrated laser. Use the laser for accurate positioning or for tracing parts using our TruTrace feature included on every machine.

x
x Plasma cutting is a messy operation. The optional integral catch pan on the SeriesOne keeps all that dust and debris off your shop floor and makes cleanup and part retrieval fast and easy. The catch pan is included as part of the down draft system or it can purchased separately as an option.
x
x A stable cutting grid is an essential component in making quality cuts. When the cutting grid is allowed to move, the material resting on the grid also moves. The SeriesOne curved cutting grid ensures that the grid and the material being cut remains stable, even during rapid changes in direction. Grid slats are simply 1/8" x 3" flat bar available at your favorite steel supplier. No preforming is required. Just flex the slats so they fit in the grid support.

Our TruTracâ„¢ automatic torch height control delivers true industrial performance without the industrial price. The TruTracâ„¢ operates outside of Mach3 controlling the Z axis directly, which allows Z axis height corrections at speeds up to the maximum velocity setting. The internal PID controller continuously adjusts Z speed based on torch height.

The TruTrac THC includes a digital remote control for easy adjustment of THC parameters. Just set your target arc voltage, which is obtained from the Hypertherm cut charts, and regardless of pierce height, the THC will drive the torch to your desired height.

Our TruVision program allows you to connect any name brand web-cam to the machine for accurate remote positioning. The TruVision program includes a cross-hair with user selectable color. Choose the color that best contrasts with the background. If you would rather purchase a complete camera system and not bother with sourcing your own camera, we offer the complete system as an option. The TruVision software is installed on every machine at no additional charge.

Motion control is handled by the Mach3 controller software. This PC based controller is widely accepted as the most reliable and stable controller available and we are proud to offer it with the SeriesOne.

Our controller also includes an integrated shape generator. This time saving feature allows the operator to create simple shapes right from the controller screen without going through the CAD/CAM process. A simple button click is all it takes to generate a wide variety of shapes.

A PC is included with Mach3 and SheetCAM pre-loaded. Complete machines also include a monitor. Kit purchasers provide their own monitor.

Please visit our Mach3 pages for further details.

SheetCAM software is also included with every machine. This powerful and easy to use software converts your images to G-code.

Please visit our SheetCAM pages for further details.

Every SeriesOne machine includes a new Dell PC and widescreen monitor with the following specs...

  • Inspiron 3650
  • 8GB Ram
  • 1TB Hard Drive
  • Intel i3-6100 Processor
  • Windows 10 Pro

Optional PC upgrades are available. See our Options page for details.

The SeriesOne is not only inexpensive to purchase, but it also has a very low cost of ownership. We designed the SeriesOne around off the shelf parts available at any industrial supply house. There is also no proprietary software or software with any sort of recurring licensing fees. We provide licensed software and you are free to download updates at any time.

Unlike some manufacturers, our controller is modular. What that means is that all components within the controller housing are replaceable individually. If your table is out of warranty and a drive fails, the last thing you need is to spend $1-2k on an entire controller when all you have to is replace one motor drive.

x

We proudly stand behind our products with a three (3) year warranty on mechanical components and controller electronics and a 90 day warranty on the PC. We will repair or replace components returned to us within the warranty period at no charge.

We support our machines indefinitely. Whether you buy a new machine or a used machine from a private party, we'll always be here for you. We don't offer expensive support contracts because every machine comes with support for life. We give you phone and e-mail support for the life of the machine. If it's our machine, we support it, regardless of where or how you bought it.
