ESAB Cutting Systems launched the Falcon FXA, a small gantry-cutting machine that is designed for improved cutting performance. The machine features heavy-duty gantry, rack-and-pinion drives, digital AC drive amplifiers, and AC brushless motors. It comes with three tools—two oxy-fuel torches and one plasma—and covers a 6-inch by 12-inch working area. These process tools allow the machine to process stainless steel or aluminum plates up to 1 inch thick or carbon steel plates up to 6 inches thick. Plates up to 6 feet wide and up to 12 feet long can be cut on either water or down-draft cutting tables. The Falcon FXA can carry ESAB plasma systems from simple 60 amp air plasma up to 200 amp dual-gas, water-cooled plasma systems. (
