Mathey Dearman’s revolutionary MagnaCut XM enables the welder and pipefitter to cut, bevel, and even weld steel pipe and steel plate without having to secure the machine to the work surface by means of chains, clamps, or any other device. The secret is in the MagnaCut’s magnetic wheels that secure the machine to the surface with 300lbs of pull. Inside the wheels are rare-earth magnets, the strongest permanent magnets made. The MagnaCut XM is an excellent choice when cutting a variety of sizes and thicknesses of pipe and plate. It will cut materials with wall thicknesses from .280” (7mm) to 3″ (76mm) using either a plasma or an oxy/acetylene cutting torch. When cutting steel plate, the use of a 1”x 1” x 1/8″ angle iron as a guide strip ensures perfectly straight tracking. In addition, the remotely-operated motor control box allows the machine to cut in hard-to-reach locations such as overhead pipes and vertical walls. Even on pipe or plate with coating material up to .015 (.4mm) thick, the MagnaCut XM tracks straight, and the torch-to-work surface distance is held constant. Welding with the MagnaCut XM Many companies have gained a decisive advantage by using the MagnaCut XM as a tractor for a machine welding torch for long tedious horizontal stringer welds. The machine is available with a rack adjustable torch holder for a 1 3/8 inch (35mm) machine torch with 32 pitch or a metric torch rack. The MagnaCut XM can propel the welding torch at speeds from 2″ to 40″ (51mm to 1016mm) per minute depending on the welding source, gas mixture, and deposition rate.
- MINIMUM SET-UP TIME—just set the distance between the torch tip and the work surface
- VERSATILE—cuts pipe, plate, walls and overheads
- SAFE—Speed and direction of both machine and torch arm speed are remotely controlled
- AMAZING HOLDING POWER—strong rare-earth magnets hold fast to any magnetic receptive surface with coating up to
.015″ (.4mm) thick.
- FAST—Up to 80% faster than cutting by hand.
