The TMC4500 DB is a top-tier thermal cutting machine, excelling in heavy-duty plate processing applications. With a robust dual box-beam gantry design created using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) methods, it ensures optimal performance and productivity in demanding production environments with multiple plasma and oxy-fuel torches. Plasma beveling plus drilling up to 4” diameter and tapping to 1-½” diameter is available. With many options available, your TMC is customized to fit your cutting needs to improve your shop’s productivity. Add an additional Pipe and Tube cutting package for round pipe beveling. This durable performer has proven its dependability in the demanding surroundings of shipyards, service centers, contract shops, and OEM manufacturers.
