The dura-kut is manufactured to machine tool standards and is built for maximum precision, repeatability, flexibility, durability and longevity. Using the latest precision drive systems for high-speed, high-accuracy, heavy-duty plasma cutting.
SureCut™ technology maximizes performance by providing embedded expertise through a combination of tools that includes plasma power supplies, CNC and CAM software.
The most powerful plasma cutting 5-axis bevel head in the industry and is protected by several U.S. Patents. The AKS robo-kut is capable of +/-45 degrees for A, V, K, X, top-Y and bottom-Y style bevel cuts for weld prep applications, countersinks, and chamfers, and also is capable of precision taper compensation or back-beveling.
The AKS robo-kut can produce a ½” diameter bolt ready hole in 1″ thick steel plate, for a ½ : 1 ratio for hole diameter: thickness. This is superior to competitive machines which are limited to traditional 1 : 1 ratio only.
The AKS plasma robo-kut incorporates robotic style precision gearing and planetary gearboxes that can be incremented in arc-seconds, or fractions of degrees, for tightest precision and accuracy. The robo-kut performs continuous unlimited rotation without interruption, for cutting of the most complex 5-axis parts without having to stop and unwind, and includes a magnetic breakaway head to prevent damage upon a crash.Learn More About robo-kut
The tube-kut add-on system increases processing flexibility and versatility to handle both flat plate cutting and tube / pipe cutting, while saving space and capital investment compared to a dedicated pipe & tube cutting systems.
With an integrated servo-controlled 6th axis rotary drive, positioned on the floor of the dura-kut, either on the left or right hand side of the table, and controlled by the CNC Controller, automatically rotates and indexes the tube / pipe, via a headstock chuck, as the plasma torch cuts shapes & profiles in the tube wall.
Complimentary cutting technology on a separate carriage, yet on the same bridge as the plasma torch. The oxy-fuel torch uses oxygen and cutting fuel gas for cutting 1/8” – 6” thick carbon steel and cannot cut stainless steel or aluminum. The oxy-fuel torch is powered by either independent servo control, or mechanical slave linkage. Also included are standard features like:
AKS also offers an extra large dura-kut version named the dura-max. The dura-max is an extra heavy-duty model specifically designed for wider width bridge beams and heavier loads, with multiple torches and carriages.
Available in widths: 16’, 18’, 20’, 22’, 24’, and 30’
Available in lengths: 20’, 30’, 40’, 50’ and increments of 10’ to 200’+
Offers multiple plasma torches – both straight and AKS robo-kut 5-axis Bevel Head
Offers multiple oxy-fuel torches

the AKS dura-kut comes standard with Hypertherm HPR-XD “Hy-Definition™” or XPR “X-Definition™” Plasma Power Supply units and torches. The AKS “dura-kut” is specifically designed for larger and thicker plate cutting with superior performance to take advantage of the Hy-Definition arc beam. The dura-kut is integrated with the Hypertherm Hy-Defintiton capability and utilizes the HPR or XPR family of cutting power supply units provides Hypertherm SureCut™ technology included.Learn More About Hypertherm Power Supplies
Coupled with the Down Draft Table, the Smoke/Dust Collector Filtration Unit provides suction air capable of both removing and filtering the plasma cutting process smoke. It is a stand-alone unit either installed indoors, near the plasma cutting machine, or outdoors for quieter operation. The Smoke Collector unit contains a series of high capacity HEPA filters which efficiently re-circulate clean air back into your plant.Learn More About Smoke Collectors
The AKS dura-kut utilizes the Hypertherm EDGE Connect™ CNC Controller, the leading plasma cutting controls package in the industry. The EDGE Connect™ combines Hypertherm’s embedded expertise foundation with AKS Cutting Systems customization.
