WHAT IS A DOWNDRAFT BURN TABLE?

Downdraft burn tables are zoned and ducted, where smoke and dust particles are pulled down and extracted through the burn table into a dust collector. All downdraft tables require a dust collector. The Slagger® also includes a zoned downdraft table with mechanically operated damper doors actuated by a cam on the end truck of the machine. The damper doors automatically open as the machine passes over the zone where cutting is occurring.

The downdraft cutting table is like no other cutting table anywhere. Downdraft table is specially designed to work with smaller machines using plasma systems up to 400 amp and material up to 3" (76.2 mm).

Downdraft burn tables are offered for gantry-style cutting machines. Messer Cutting Systems recommends the Slagger® and Shuttle Table.

  • Table width 7'-4" up to 24' - 4".
  • Table length 10'-8" up to 200'-0".
  • Small parts can be retrieved easily.
  • The dust collector keeps the operating environment clean.
  • The table does not have to be disassembled to remove the slag.
  • Material Type: mild steel, stainless steel, and aluminum.
  • Machine Model Compatibility: MetalMaster Evolution and other machines with 400 amp plasma or lower.
  • Material Thickness Capacity: 26 gauge to 3" (76.2mm).

What is the plate capacity for a downdraft burn table?

The maximum workpiece thickness for the standard downdraft burn table varies with table width. Standard table sizes are available to meet the specific requirements of the cutting machine. Reinforced tables to accommodate for thicker material are available.

How does a downdraft table work?

This table is able to automatically move the small parts and slag produced from either oxy-fuel or plasma cutting from the table bottom to the end of the table. A pusher type blade moves the small parts and slag forward into the optional pan located at the front of the plasma cutting table.

The Slagger® is also an excellent smoke removal table. Smoke is drawn from the table by a side duct that is divided into zones. The zones open only at the plasma cutting machine location.
