Magnetic Breakaway Machine Torch Mount
All CNC cutting tables need some type of plasma torch protection.
Our Magnetic Breakaway Plasma Torch Protection System is built with 8 Neodymium rare earth magnets.
4 magnets are mounted on the torch holder side of the breakaway attaching plate and 4 are mounted on the torch riser breakaway attaching plate.
Utilizing the magnets this way makes the two halves self-aligning. It’s just a far better design overall!
It has proven to be a better design than a breakaway that uses magnets on only one side of the breakaway and some kind of metal plate and alinement pin system on the other. Alignment pins work however breakaway force will in fact change in relation to alinement pin placement.
Our Magnetic Breakaway Plasma Torch Protection System provides 58 pounds of breakaway holding force. In many hours of testing we have found that it is the perfect amount of holding force to prevent damage to the plasma torch or the gantry in the event of a torch collision.
All of the magnets are pressed into precision machined counter bores. There is no way for these magnets to ever pull out on their attracting sides.
CNC built entirely in the USA from American aircraft grade aluminum and anodized red.
You will see the precision fit and build quality the minute you remove it from the shipping box.
The plasma torch outer holding clamp has the gear rack slot machined into it which allows you to use a plasma machine torch with or without the gear rack attached. This is a feature not seen in our competitor’s products.
Another great reason for a gear rack slot is that the standard plasma machine torch barrel is 1 3/8-inch diameter the exact same diameter as an oxy-fuel machine torch this neat feature allows you to use an oxy fuel machine torch without having to remove the gear rack.
Some of our customers have their CNC cutting tables set up with both plasma and oxy fuel torches.
The Plasma Torch Protection System works great with floating torch riser systems found on some CNC cutting tables.
Another great feature you won’t find in any other magnetic torch breakaways at this price is that our Magnetic Breakaway Plasma Torch Protection System allows you to bevel cut.
Each Magnetic Breakaway Plasma Torch Protection System plasma torch holder is machined with a twin hardened ball and socket assembly that allows you to swing and lock the plasma torch into place for 15, 30 and 45-degree bevel cutting in both right and left directions in relation to the Y travel enabling you to bevel cut plate in the X long access travel.
All of our Magnetic Breakaway Plasma Torch Protection System products are built with a universal mounting base. This base has eight different mounting patterns for mounting to just about any torch riser in minutes. It is a direct mount to many CNC cutting tables, such as PlasmaCam/Samson, GoTorch, Dynatorch, Velox Z axis and Precision Plasma plus many others. We have a customized adapter for the Torchmate and BurnTables.
All units are shipped with a basic stainless hardware mounting kit.
We do manufacture and offer adapters for a few of the CNC cutting tables that come from the factory with their torch holder as part of the riser assembly such as Torchmate.
Yes, there is a difference! Our plasma torch holder can be found as original equipment on several brands of CNC cutting tables, as well as, used by many CNC plasma retrofitting companies worldwide.
Yes there are a few versions of our Magnetic Breakaway torch holder.
See below which unit will work best for your application:
Standard universal Magnetic Breakaway CNC plasma torch holder. This unit is by far our most popular model. It will fit the majority of CNC cutting tables. It is a direct mount to PlasmaCam, Samson DHC2, GoTorch, Dynatorch, Velox Z Axis and several others. For BurnTable order item #MB-BT.
This unit is shipped with the industry standard 1-3/8 inch inside diameter plasma machine torch clamp. This is the of choice for many home built CNC cutting tables.
Torchmate model 1, 2, and 3 equipped with arc voltage height control (AVHC) CNC cutting tables only.
Comes with all adapters needed to directly mount to your Torchmate riser assembly.
Note very early non AHVC Torch Mate Cutting tables will use the MB-1.
This is a specialized unit to allow the use of a High Definition Plasma Machine Torch. This type of plasma torch has a 2 inch outside diameter and is made for non-compressed air plasma cutting typically utilizing some type of compressed mixed gases. The universal mounting arrangement is the same as MB-1 but the breakaway has 12 rare earth magnets to support the increased weight of the high definition plasma torch. This provides 87 pounds of holding force.
