Messer Cutting Systems ALFA torch offers numerous sophisticated features and options, taking thermal cutting to a completely new level. The torch nozzle, for example, can be replaced without a tool. As a result, misalignment of the torch is prevented, resulting in drastically reduced set-up times. The cap can simply be unscrewed to expose the nozzle, so it can easily be checked or replaced.
Moreover, material can be utilised in a more efficient way, as the ALFA is able to cut effectively up to and along the edge of the sheet.
Furthermore, the torch integrates numerous functions, which on other systems are attached to the outside, such as height sensing. Their full integration eliminates the need for additional cables and sensing rings – and having to exchange the latter to suit different material thicknesses or to replace them due to wear.
- Quick nozzle change without tools and without a misalignment of the torch, resulting in significantly reduced idle times
- Improved material utilisation through optimal sensing and cutting, also along the edges
- Fully integrated magnetic height sensing
