Product Description

The Oxford Cutmaker 1000 offers exceptional cutting performance on all metals. Our unique design gives a tightly constricted arc minimising kerf width & maximising cut capacity & speed. This also results in a very straight clean cut with minimal dross. Even on thick materials the cut will be very close to perfectly straight & with a narrow kerf. Compared with a low cost imported plasmas the performance difference is almost unbelievable. Compared to using oxy-fuel (gas bottles) cut speed can be more than 6 times as fast & with over 90% reduction in operating cost & a much nicer cut quality.

Unlike many plasma machines these models can also cut the very thinnest of metals with absolute precision, just fit fine cut tips & select a low power, cut from 0.5mm upwards.

Mechanised cutting performance is exceptional, just fit our machine torch & fit the CNC interface kit & you have the perfect machine to fit to cutting tables, fit to new CNC machines or old Burny or Westinghouse controllers, straight line cutters, robot etc. CNC interface uses the same wiring as US made machines, start signal, OK to move contact & we also have infinitely adjustable (non isolated) divided arc volts to suit all known control systems.

Metal marking

Our metal marking function allows fast clean marking of metals for both automated & manual use. Mark drill points, fold marks, add your logo, date code, ID, etc. The 14A-25A (17-25A on 1000/1300 models) range is ideal for everything from 1mm material up. Unlike competitors’ products we use standard cut consumables, so move from cutting to marking in a second!

Thermal gouging

Cutmaker 1000 & 1300 models give great gouging performance from small light jobs right up to the heaviest job. The arc stretch on all our models is unbeatable, the 1300 model will stretch up to 75mm giving you smoother finishes & better control. Remove welds, wear plates, create weld preps, etc. Can also be used for automated gouging with robots or Gullco carriages & tractors.

Thermal heating

A fast source of direct heat for manual use, mainly to assist with the removal of seized nuts, bearings, & light preheating jobs. This function provides around 2kw (350-700) or 2.7kw on 1000-1300 models of intense instant heat far hotter than propane or butane torches produce. It’s also a more direct & controllable heat so heats only the item you need heating & the cooling air keeps everything else at a low temperature. For instance when removing seized nuts propane torches tend to heat the nut & bolt, Cutmaker plasmas will heat the nut & leave the bolt relatively cool, allowing the nut to be removed quicker.

The following are typical times to heat nuts to cherry red colour. M5 – 3 secs, M6 – 5 secs, M8 – 8 secs, M10 – 14 secs, M12 – 20 secs, M16 – 28 secs.

In addition, thermal heating function is particularly good for use to bend plastic sheets & can be used for plastic welding.

CUTMAKER 1000-1300 models use our P130 torch which has quick connect central adaptor fitted standard.The P130 is a rugged, reliable torch capable of very high power work, its fitted with high flex coaxial cable which has a burn resistance in excess of 300ºC. Standard medium length drag consumables allow good access for following templates & stright edges. Extended consumables are also available for any tight access work. The P130 torch consumables are low cost & long life, they keep working far longer than most competitors, in addition there are really only 3 wear parts, electrode, tip & copper drag. Fine cut torch parts are also available if needed for any extra fine jobs. The quick connect torch can be swapped in seconds, ideal for transferring from manual to CNC cutting tables. Torches are available in 6M or 12M lengths, both manual & stright automatic versions. In addition torch extension cables are available to give up to 20M torch length.

For all models the arc starts using only air (non HF) this means these are safe for use on vehicles & don’t interfere with IT systems.

If you want a quality plasma cutter that's still working well in 20+ years then you need to have a look at our machines. 
Our Oxford CUTMAKER models utilise our highly acclaimed Oxford Hybrid technology which combines older transformer technology with the best parts of inverter technology. This gives you the very highest cutting performance possible for the lowest input power. The benefits are real, look at our performance specs & you will notice our machines cut more & do more than all other machines on the market today. And importantly because these machines have a copper transformer & are not an inverter you don't need to be concerned about reliability or lifespan. All inverter based machines suffer from reliability issues, the low cost imports often fail in a few months, even the quality EU or US made inverters do not have a long life & repair bills can be so excessive that the machine has to be scrapped.
Our hybrid chopper design is totally unique, internal construction is simple with only one PCB fitted, they are not affected by damp or harsh conditions such as dusty dirty workshops, knocks & drops, unstable input voltages cause no harm, even 75% over voltage for a few seconds can be tolerated.

Rugged, reliable machines with the best cutting performance possible from an air plasma cutter! Satisfaction guaranteed!

Main features all models; 

  • Superior cut quality with really clean stright edges on all materials from the thinnest sheet right up to max capacity.
  • Cuts clean or dirty & rusty material just as well, steel, galv steel, stainless steel, hardox, aluminium, brass, copper etc
  • Thermal gouging function allows the operator to gouge away material efficiently, ideal for removing welds, fastenings, edge plates brackets etc 
  • Thermal arc heating function allows the operator to apply direct thermal arc heating similar to using gas bottles but using only air & electric!
  • Metal marking function for both hand & cutting tables, mark your logo, fold points, date codes etc.
  • 1000 & 1300 models can also be used with Nitrogen instead of air to give best results on stainless steels.
  • 1000 & 1300 models include a digital ammeter to display exact ouput power.
  • 350, 550 & 700 models now include an accurate dial to show power setting in amps.
  • Energy efficient design 90%+ efficiency means you get more cutting power for the lowest input power.
