Bend-Tech to Launch Coolant Support System for its Dragon A400 and Dragon A250 CNC plasma tube and pipe-cutting models. The new system enables longer section cutting and easy handling of the stock.
Apr 12, 2023
Bend-Tech, a US-based leading developer of versatile CNC plasma tube and pipe cutting equipment and integrated software, will launch its Coolant Support System at the upcoming 2023 Steel Conference. The system is designed to work with Bend-Tech’s Dragon A400 and Dragon A250 CNC plasma tube and pipe-cutting models.
The system will make the handling of longer tube and pipe materials more efficient. It has additional support trolleys to carry stock as it is loaded and holds up long parts to maintain a consistent, cleaner cut, no matter the length. The system also allows the cutting of longer parts while maintaining safety standards.
The Coolant Support System is ideal for the fabrication of stainless steel tubes and pipes with application in industries such as petrochemical, chemical, and dairy, as well as aluminum tubes and pipes used in boat docks and trailer manufacturing. The system is designed with rigid sidewalls and splash guards that securely contain fluids and prevent spills to run production efficiently, keep a clean shop environment, and maintain safety standards.
The A400’s full 400-pound weight capacity is supported in round, square, or rectangle stocks with the same sizing up to 6.375 inches measured at the hypotenuse. Bend-Tech’s A400 will be capable of cutting, marking, and engraving long aluminum trailer rails and stainless staircase handrails. Other closed-profile stocks can also be run with coolant using custom plugs. The A250 will support round stock to 260 pounds.
The new system allows quick release for fast changes between materials sizes, maintains material centerline, and uses non-marring, durable Teflon® supports.
Mr. Mitchell Eigenberger, General Manager of Bend-Tech, says, “Bend-Tech’s new support system enhances the most versatile CNC plasma cutters on the market, our Dragon A250 and A400. We took customer feedback to heart when designing the new Coolant Support System so operators can work with longer materials and cut longer parts in a safe and efficient manner.”
