TMC4500 DB Cutting Machine


Machine Information


The TMC4500 DB workhorse is the indusry leader when it comes to your thermal machining needs.

The TMC4500 DB is a heavy duty dual box-beam constructed gantry cutting machine, is built to perform in your rigorous production environment. Finite Element Analysis (FEA) design methods assure that your TMC is up to the task of cutting with multiple Plasma and Oxyfuel torches. With many options available, your TMC is customized to fit your cutting needs to improve your shop’s productivity. Torch options include Vertical Torches, Triple Torch Oxyfuel Beveling, and Plasma Beveling with the unique compound Skew Rotator. The TMC4500 DB can utilize conventional Plasma, precision Plasma, Oxyfuel, and drilling capability up to 4” diameter holes plus a wide variety of marking techniques can be employed to meet your needs. This durable performer has proven its dependability in the demanding surroundings of shipyards, service centers, contract shops, and OEM manufacturers.
