Plate Processing

Plate Processing

Located at our Bakersfield branch, the Peddinghaus HSFDB 2500 is the top of the line plate processing system.  The Peddinghaus plate processor can Thermal Contour Cut using either a high-speed plasma or Oxy Fuel system.  In addition to cutting 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.

True Modern Technology

Sophisticated material handling, carbide drilling technology, and the absolute latest in plasma cutting techniques make the HSFDB the most modern plate processor in the world today. How does it measure up when compared to the age 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 Peddinghaus plate processor can eliminate 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.
