360 Degree Plasma Technology

The Ring of Fire Thermal Processor utilizes a never before seen 360º approach to plasma cutting. A single Hypertherm Plasma torch is fixed to a rotating "ring" which is capable of revolving in excess of 360º around the profile being processed. This allows the machine to process all 4 sides of a tube; process each side of a beam, angle, or channel; and mark on 4 sides of any structural member.

Mitering Capability

In addition to being able to rotate 360º around the profile being processed, the Ring of Fire from Peddinghaus is also capable of unmatched mitering. Ideal for the addition of weld prep, or compound mitering of profiles, the Ring of Fire's mitering capabilities are second to none.

Hypertherm HPR400 Plasma Cutting

The Peddinghaus Ring of Fire comes standard with the Hypertherm HPR400XD plasma unit. The HyPerformance HPR400XD system, with HyDefinition and PowerPierce technologies, is designed to combine faster cutting speeds, rapid process cycling, quick changeovers, and high reliability to maximize productivity in cutting, beveling, and marking.

Laser Surface Detection

No longer are thermal processors required to probe the surface of material using the tip of the torch. State of the art laser surface detection employed by Peddinghaus allows for touch free probing. This not only makes surface detection faster, but more accurate than ever before. When compared to antiquated electric arc probing, the laser probe is in no way affected by the presence of rust, or mill scale.

Automatic Parts Conveyer

Smaller components, scrap, and thermal byproduct created by the Ring of Fire is automatically conveyed to a hopper safely away from the machine for fast and efficient removal. Parts can be moved to further production processes without the need to stop the machine. This allows continuous production to be achieved.

Roller Measurement

Peddinghaus' Roller Measurement allows for supreme flexibility in regards to material handling, and scrap savings. This unique form of measurement actually drives the material through the machine with a powerful pinch roller mechanism. By applying a set of precision encoders that track distance the material has traveled, the machine is able to quickly and accurately produce perfect parts.

Siemens Control

The Ring of Fire features the industry leading CNC control panel from Siemens. This powerful multi-axis control panel offers the flexibility of a windows interface, while maintaining the robust build and quality of a shop hardened CNC control. The unmatched global access to spare parts, service, and industry leading warranty prove Siemens to be the ultimate electronics provider in today's machine tool market.

The Outfeed System

On the exit side of the machine the Ring of Fire uses a gripper system that supports and guides a piece of material through production. This makes it possible to process the end of material for additional holes, copes, or cutoffs. It is also useful on short parts not short enough to drop onto conveyor and for multiples run off of a longer piece of material.

The Dust Collection System

Thermal byproduct is safely contained by a dust collection system provided with the machine. Peddinghaus does not recommend allowing these thermal vapors to go uncontained. The Ring of Fire effectively contains thermal byproduct and makes for easy removal – keeping shop space cleaner, and employees safer.
