Plate Processing

State of the Art Plate Cutting

Peddinghaus HSFDB 2500

Sophisticated material handling, carbide drilling technology, and the absolute latest in plasma cutting techniques make the Peddinghaus HSFDB 2500 the most modern plate processor in the world today. Located in Bakersfield, our HSFDB can Thermal Contour Cut using either a high-speed plasma or Oxy Fuel system. In addition, it can also drill, tap, mill face, countersink, and mark parts to exact specifications. Your CAD or DXF files can be stored in our system for easy retrieval upon re-order.

How does the HSFDB compare to the old designs of the burn table or gripper style plate processing system? Multiple parts cut in a single pass – this is the philosophy behind “common cutline” production. Our plate processor eliminates redundant torch starts using a single start to cut an array of components within a nest. Eliminating the need to maintain scrap between each part, the Peddinghaus plate processor can cut entire zones in a single start, while also utilizing an impressive amount of material; providing lower scrap ratios than any machine on the market today.  

Industry Applications

The HSFDB is the ideal plate processor for a wide array of applications. Plate up to 10′ wide and 4″ thick can be processed with ease.
