Kaliburn Spirit 150a
  • Overview
  • Specifications

The Spirit150a by KALIBURN is a full function 150 amp high current density plasma cutting and marking system incorporating fully automated process control, cutting of most metals up to 1’’ (25.0mm) thick, and has a maximum capacity of 1 ½’’ (38.0mm). It is designed to be the ultimate process tool when precise, square, and virtually dross-free cuts and ease of operation are important. Unparalleled consumable life is a benefit of all KALIBURN Spirit systems. 

The “a” is for automatic…

Automatic setting of process parameters equates to exceptional ease of operation. The KALIBURN Spirit150a combines convenience with the ultimate in cut quality. The KALIBURN Spirit150a truly sets the standard in precision plasma cutting within its thickness range. 

With the KALIBURN Spirit150a automatic gas console (AGC) you simply select the material type and thickness or let the computer's serial port transmit the cutting parameters. The rest is automatic, and especially easy when interfaced with a Burny 10LCD+ or Burny Phantom Control.

The KALIBURN Spirit150a provides precision high current density plasma cut edge quality. It delivers virtually dross-free cuts with 2° or less cut edge bevel. The Spirit150a system is one of four automated systems in the KALIBURN Spirit family. Other Spirit systems offer identical cut quality but each has a unique amperage range and corresponding thickness capacity. 

The KALIBURN Spirit150a is available with the optional INOVA Torch Height Control System. Also, a pneumatic saftey switch can be added to protect the torch from collision damage. 

KALIBURN HfOT™ (Hafnium Optimizing Technology) is proprietary technology that maximizes consumable life while ensuring superior cut quality. HfOT™ begins with the design of the torch and consumables. The components are designed to provide proper arc formation, constriction, and centering. HfOT™ includes a breakthrough method for starting and stopping the plasma arc, which is where the majority of the consumable wear occurs. HfOT™ minimizes consumable wear during the start up and shut down by uniquely and precisely controlling the relationship between the arc current and plasma gas. HfOT™ results in superior cut quality, extraordinary consumable life, and low operating cost.
