Initial position finding when cutting with plasma

Modern systems for cutting thin sheet metal are normally equipped with a tactile position sensor for establishing the initial position by physically making contact with the sheet.

Major manufacturers of plasma systems equip their cutting torches with what is known as a contact sensor and the IHT M 400 PCS Height Control system has a compatible input that accepts this signal.

For those cutting systems that do not have a built in contact sensor, IHT Automation has now developed its own contact sensor that can be fitted to any plasma cutting torch.
