Plasma Cutting

Positioning of the plasma torch on the X-Y cutting table requires feedback devices that are less sensitive to electrical noise.  

The MTS absolute position linear sensor uses a non-contact permanent magnet for position reading and requires no maintenance and calibration. Removing electrical wires from proximity with the plasma torch, combined with a signal-to-noise ratio greater than 25:1 makes the MTS sensor a good fit for this difficult application.

Standard Industry bus communication protocols allows for easy integration in advanced CNC motion controls.
