Neuron Complete solution for torch control in the Plasma and OxyFuel cutting industry

The Neuron torch height control system is the fully automatic most technologically advanced arc voltage control system in the plasma cutting industry. It is designed to offer arc voltage control capabilities to any plasma cutting system.

The Neuron quickly and accurately sets the arc transfer height of the torch using a “ Ohmic touch-retract” or/and “Float Head” plate sensing technique.

The Neuron system uses advanced DSP (digital signal processing) software servo control loops to control speed, position and arc voltage with unparalleled precision, so you maintain the selected arc voltage with the highest degree of accuracy: ± 0.25 volts! Precise arc voltage control affects dross formation, cut face appearance and the dimensional consistency of the part.

The Neuron gives you a torch height position control with a set point resolution of +/-0.125 mm (.005") and an arc voltage control with a set point resolution of 0.25 volt. This precise setting gives you unparalleled control over your cut, with the smallest cut angle, kerf width and face variation.

Neuron can attain speeds in excess of 6000 mm per minute in the arc voltage control mode. Rapid response means arc voltage control available for high, intermediate, or low-speed plasma arc cutting. System work very fast. No overshoot.

The system is fully programmable via 10/100 Base-T Ethernet communications through Neuron control panel, embedded in the Mach3 CNC. The cut sequence is determined by the built-in algorithm that has been used successfully for a long time of system operation. The operator may at any time (even during the cut) change all parameters via control panel in the Mach3. To change the settings of the cutting process is not necessary to change the program. Simply enter a new value as you usually do it in Windows.
