High Definition CNC Plasma Plate Cutting

MTI performs most plate cutting using two CNC Plasma Tables that can handle up to 10 foot wide by 40 foot long plates.  For very thick plate cutting (up to 6 inches thick), one table is equipped with a conventional Oxy Fueled Torch Head.  All plate part detailing and nesting is performed in-house using AUTOCAD and PRONEST software.

Material Traceability and Part Labeling

All cut parts are labeled to ensure material traceability by Job Number, Drawing Number, and Heat Number.  In most cases, cut parts are kitted and staged for the assembly steps called out in the job work package.
