AKS Tru-Cut

The AKS Cutting Systems "tru-kut" is a 5' x 10' platform CNC Plasma Cutting System that includes many of the preferred features of the AKS "accu-kut".

The AKS "tru-kut" is a CNC x-y programmable plasma cutting system that can incorporate either traditional non-HyDefinition® "air" plasma power supply unit, or upgraded to the AKS "tru-kut" X to include Hypertherm "HyDefinition®" plasma cutting.

Whether integrated with a HyDefinition® plasma torch, or with a traditional "air" plasma torch, the AKS "tru-kut" is designed and built to the same performance and durability standards as all AKS Cutting Systems. The AKS "tru-kut" unitized machine frame is machined in one single set-up, resulting in the highest achievable accuracies of motion of any plasma cutting system on the market. The AKS "tru-kut" uses the same controls, motors, drives and controller as the AKS “accu-kut” achieving superior motion accuracy and precision.

AKS Tru-Cut

The AKS "tru-kut" uses standard all Hypertherm technology including:

Hypertherm Plasma Power Supply Unit
Hypertherm Edge Connect™ CNC Controller
Hypertherm Phoenix Operating Software
Hypertherm ProNest LT Programming Software
Hypertherm Sensor™ Advanced Torch Height Control (THC)
Hypertherm Torch Head and Consumables


The AKS "tru-kut" offers these optional upgrade items:

upgrade the standard “tru-kut” into the premium “tru-kut” X, including:

 - Upgrading the plasma power supply from the traditional “air” plasma to the Hypertherm HyDefinition® Plasma Power Supply
 - Upgrading the software from Hypertherm ProNest LT (light) to full version Hypertherm ProNest including the Advanced Post Processor and the Automatic Nesting Module

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:

 - True Hole®
 - Power Pierce™
 - Rapid Part™
 - True Bevel™
 - Optimized Process Parameters
 - Maximized Consumable Component Life

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

commonly on the “tru-kut” X, this enhancement offers improved HyDefinition® cutting and improved smoke collection (smoke collector filtration unit or blower fan unit must also be purchased.) Unlike water tables, which sometimes interfere with the HyDefinition® cutting process, the Down Draft table provides a simpler, smoother and cleaner cutting operation, which eliminates the environmental concern to discharge waste water. The AKS “tru-kut” includes single 5’x10’ zone with optimized air draw, and includes access doors on both sides of the tank for easy cleanout and maintenance.

is 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”. Most importantly, the AKS “robo-kut” can produce a ½” dia “bolt ready hole” in 1” thick steel plate, for a ½ : 1 ratio for hole diameter: thickness in many applications, which is superior over 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.

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.

complimentary technology cutting torch on a separate carriage, but on the same bridge, next to the plasma torch. The Oxy-Fuel torch is powered by either independent servo control, or mechanical slave linkage. Also included standard are auto gas control and remote ignition. The Oxy-Fuel torch is for cutting 2”-6” thick carbon steel and cannot cut stainless steel and aluminum. The AKS Oxy-Fuel torch is a premium design, able to withstand the harsh, ultra-hot, cutting process
