Description

The BURNY® LEVITATOR® System makes it easy for operators of gantry or cantilever shape cutting machines to maintain an optimum cutting distance between the torch tip and the steel plate. By maintaining a constant working distance between the torch tip and the plate, the LEVITATOR System provides consistent high quality cuts, provides faster and more reliable piercing cycles, and enables the machine to cut at maximum speeds. With consistent quality and accuracy, it reduces scrap. In addition, the LEVITATOR System can maximize productivity with automation by freeing the operator to perform other tasks while the torches operate unattended.

The LEVITATOR System is designed to operate in either an automated or a manual mode. It is comprised of a microprocessor controlled height sensing system, sensing ring with bending device and control cable. The Torch Lifter and Torch Height Control Sensor are designed to function together as a system. The LEVITATOR system can operate with BURNY’s Torch Lifter Assembly or other third party lifter assemblies. Both are designed to be rugged and durable.

They are available for use with new flame-cutting machines or can be fitted to older machines.
