The AKS tru-kut is a CNC X-Y programmable plasma cutting system incorporating a traditional “air” plasma power unit, or the Hypertherm HyDefinition® plasma cutting power supply.
SureCut™ technology maximizes performance by providing embedded expertise through a combination of tools that includes plasma power supplies, CNC and CAM software.
By upgrading to the superior HyDefinition® cutting process, the tru-kut X 510, which is a True Hole® enabled cutting system, is part of the Hypertherm SureCut™ Technology product, and achieves premium plasma cutting performance including Hypertherm advanced cutting features like:
The AKS tru-kut X still utilizes all the same exclusive features and benefits of the tru-kut, but now, the cutting performance of the tru-kut X is improved to the level of similar performance of the industry-leading AKS accu-kut. The AKS tru-kut X is the highest value small platform machine available on the market, with superior performance and capability over similar competitive machines.
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
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:
the AKS tru-kut comes standard and is fully integrated with the Hypertherm HPR-XD Hy-Definition™ and XPR X-Definition™ Plasma Power Supply family and torches. The AKS tru-kut is specifically designed to take advantage of the Hy-Definition™ and X-Definition™ arc beam for superior performance when cutting larger and thicker plate. The tru-kut integration with Hypertherm HPR and XPR power supply units provides Hypertherm SureCut™ technology as a standard feature.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 tru-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.
