The Aviator® H-VAC is the perfect profile cutting solution for any job shop or manufacturer. Aviator® H-VAC includes a CNC control, unitized cutting table, plasma cutting system, pneumatic plasma height control with roller ball head and high speed drives. Base machine systems can be pre-configured with plasma systems from 60 amp to 150 amps. Thin gage sheet metal to 3/4" plate (19mm), Aviator® H-VAC can handle your plasma cutting jobs. An Optional Pneumatic Air Scribe may also be added for engraving bend lines or part numbers on the plate.

Aviator® H-VAC delivers productivity. The BurnyTM 1250 Plus microprocessor CNC control provides precision motion control for high-speed plasma cutting. Arc-off time between parts is extremely short because rapid traverse speed is always 750 IPM.

The Aviator® H-VAC's heavy-duty welded tubular steel frame supports the unitized 61" x 121" cutting table. Select either the air exhaust or water table design. An Optional second unitized table extension may be purchased with a new system or added later in the field.

Aviator® H-VAC's unitized frame ships completely assembled, so installation is quick and easy. The frame is leveled, cross beam set, tool carriage mounted and the cables routed. You will be cutting parts within hours.

Design2FAB layout software system includes: comprehensive libraries of round, rectangular, oval and combination fittings for applications in HVAC, Piping, Roofing, Industrial and other related industries. Design2FAB allows the manual layout person to create fitting patterns in seconds not hours. (Triangulation for manual layouts is also included). Have your entire job laid out faster than you could imagine and out to your customer or field the same day.

Simply click on a shape icon, enter your details and accessories for that fitting using pop down menus - which can be added to on the fly if necessary, enter dimensions and customize it to any shape, click the 3Dv view - spin it around - to see what you have made, click Save-- Its done! Now, click your pattern button to view your pattern(s) with connectors, seams, bend lines, shear blank and other information. Click Print and choose to print your pattern(s) or fabrication report. It's that simple. Enter an entire job, save to printout later, make edits to individual fittings or update any feature(s) globally for the entire job. Shows weight, square footage, scrap metal costs, material cost, labor and so much more. These files are exported via DXF (Direct Exchange Format) to MTC TurboNEST Automatic Nesting Software.
