Silhouette 1000

The Silhouette 1000 is a cantilever cutting system ideally suited for a fabricating shop or maintenance department needing a high quality, photo-optical controlled shape cutting system.

All the features combine into a system that gives the Silhouette 1000 the precision and stability needed for consistent accurate cutting. Rack-and-pinion drives, rugged cross beam and hardened round rails are standard equipment. Cutting and tracing widths of 4 or 6’ (1219 and 1829 mm) are available. With optional rail extensions and extra tracing tables, length can be established as required for your application.

A moveable tracing table and easy-to-use HL-90 Optical Tracer will let you cut parts faster and easier.

The HL-90 will give you years of dependable service tracing lines as narrow as 0.030” (0.762 mm), at speeds from 2 - 118” per minute (50.8 - 3000 mm/m). Forward offset provides accurate corner cuts, while kerf compensation is adjustable up to ±1/8” (3 mm). Cutting parameters controlled from the HL-90 control panel include: direction of travel; speed; operating mode; power and cutting oxygen.

A Silhouette 1000 has the capacity to accommodate up to five cutting stations. Station configurations can include four oxygen/fuel-gas torches, one plasma torch, or a combination of up to four oxygen/fuel-gas stations and one plasma station. Optional motorized lifts are available as well as a festoon system to ease cable and hose movement along the rail.
