Ficep says that HGG’s plasma features and software allow for accurate torch-to-material distance control, which prevents torch collisions, cutting deviation and ensures a constant arc is maintained throughout the operational process. What’s more, Kerf width compensation is included in all CNC pipe cutting routines to compensate the arc thickness for higher precision.

In dealing with greater wall thickness, where the shape of the arc can influence cut accuracy, HGG machines incorporate an angular compensation facility to correct inaccuracies due to arc convergence.

Every machine in the HGG range comes with oxy fuel, plasma, marking and CADCAM Interfaces.

HGG machines are aimed at applications that include wind turbines, mobile telecoms towers, offshore rigs/platforms, bridges, shipbuilding, pressure vessels and stadium construction.
