New TMC is Messer’s Largest Cutting Machine
Messer Cutting Systems, Menomonee Falls, Wis., has introduced the largest machine in the company’s line, the TMC4500 DB. The TMC is a heavy-duty dual-box-beam constructed gantry cutting machine. The dual-beam design is supported by 10-foot endtrucks for greater stability, providing support for Messer's largest cutting tools.
The dual-beam design allows for the placement of process tools on both beams. In applications requiring a large variety of tools, the cross axis beam grows in width to accommodate the coverage of each process. The dual-beam design allows for a narrower footprint by utilizing both front and rear beams necessary to fit within limited workspaces.
Additionally, the design is strong enough to support Messer's 65HP drill with a 24-tool changer, capable of drilling 4-inch diameters holes. The TMC4500 DB can support all of Messer's process tools including precision bevel and straight plasma, laser and oxyfuel cutting, marking and grinding tools.
