Titan III Plasma Cutter Specifications

With harsh cutting and high heat environments in mind, the Titan III was designed for demanding environments. Utilizing an innovative end truck design, which houses and isolates the electronics away from the plate processing area, the Titan III can easily handle both heavy plate and around-the-clock operation.

The machine features linear ways in the Y-axis, pitch-line engaged rack and pinions, and our high productivity SL lifters for smooth, repeatable cutting or marking. Our industry-leading Global ControlPlus lets you cut faster with our easy-to-use touch screen interface.

Titan III

Titan III Components


The Messer Cutting Systems developed ALFA oxy-fuel torch takes oxy-fuel cutting to an entirely new level. The ALFA torch internalizes many features that used to have to be on the outside of an oxy-fuel torch, including height sensing and auto-ignition.


MS 832/Turbo Torch

Our Turbo Flame™ Torch is very versatile, able to be used with a variety of fuel gases and is very safe to operate.


FT100 Torch Ignitor

Messer Cutting Systems FT100 Torch Ignitor remotely ignites any brand of oxyfuel torch. Since no arc is struck, critical alignment is not needed allowing for easy and fast tip change out.


Omniflow Automatic Gas Control System

The Omniflow Automatic Gas Control System delivers automatic setting and regulation of preheat oxygen, cutting oxygen and fuel gas pressure during oxyfuel cutting.


Single Position Oxyfuel Bevel Unit

Manually adjusted Single Position Triple Torch Oxy-fuel Bevel Unit for straight line bevels with manual ignition and gas adjustment.


Three Position Oxyfuel Bevel Unit

Manually adjusted Triple Torch Oxyfuel Bevel Unit for straight line bevels with manual gas adjustment and manual ignition.


Straight Line Plasma cutting Messer

Straight Plasma Cutting

Our products cover the whole range of cutting tasks in modern metal industries. Using different thermal cutting technologies for straight plasma cutting, our machines can be easily adapted to your shop’s requirements.


Global Rotator Delta e Bevel Cutting

Robust compact design, coupled with our OmniBevel software, creates the best plasma bevel cut parts.


Manual Plasma Stripping Bevel Unit

Messer Cutting Systems’ Manual Plasma Bevel Unit provides an adapter mounting between the SureStop breakaway and the lifter. This component enables straight-line motion bevel cutting in the X-axis.


airscribe from Messer

Air Scribe Marking

The Air Scribe marker uses a reciprocating pin to mark on mild steel, stainless steel, and aluminum plate. The marker can be used with any plate thickness.


Powder Marking

Produces lines and text using zinc powder. Learn More.


Plasma marker from Messer Cutting

Plasma Marking

Plasma marking is suitable for the engraving of lines, contours and characters on plate surfaces.


Inkjet marking from Messer

Inkjet Marking

Ink-jet marking delivers fast and quiet alphanumeric labeling with printing in one direction of travel for non-rotational unit or multi-directional with rotating unit.


Telesis Pinstamp from Messer

Telesis Pinstamp®

The Telesis® Pinstamp® marking system uses a reciprocating stylus permanently prints messages on to a variety of plate such as mild steel, stainless steel, and aluminum.


Electric Drilling Unit

An optional drill feature can be combined with a normal plasma and oxyfuel cutting, allowing for form work to be done on the piece part in a single handling.


SL-200, SL-300 Plasma and Oxyfuel SmartLifters

The SL200 PLASMA AND OXYFUEL SMARTLIFTERS include several productivity enhancing features to produce more parts in a shorter period of time. An adaptive initial height sense system “learns” the height of the plate on the cutting table to quickly position the torch to the correct pierce height.


PL-1 Lifter with Surestop Collision Sensor

Messer Cutting Systems’ PL-1 Plasma Torch Lifter combines plasma arc voltage monitoring with a CNC closed-loop positioning axis to significantly enhance plasma height control in plasma cutting. This enhanced height control results in a higher duty cycle and better cut quality. The Surestop Collision sensor for fast and easy torch reset.



SensoMat®-PAN Height Sensing for oxyfuel reliably maintains the proper standoff distance between the oxyfuel torch tip and the work piece, without operator intervention.


Laser Pointer

Our Laser Pointer enables the operator to identify the edge or other feature of the plate physically with a known location on the cutting machine, simplifying the basic setting, shortening throughput times and avoiding scrap.


Digital Video Camera

Monitor the cutting process with Messer Cutting Systems’ Digital Video Camera. This product assists in remote diagnostics using Virtual Service™ and gives your team the benefit of having a bird’s-eye view of the cutting process.


Video Camera Manual Plate Alignment

Monitor the cutting process with a Video Camera for Manual Plate Alignment. The image is conveniently displayed on the 24" TFT color screen of the Global Control Plus.


Plasma Air Booster

Plasma Air Booster

Plasma air booster is a low cost alternative to an expensive air compressor. Available for all machines with a plasma system.150 PSI per CFM.


Dual Hi-Lo

Dual Hi-Lo Manual Gas Control System is an economical gas control solution for oxy-fuel.


Glare Curtains

Glare Curtains for operator safety and plasma cutting spatter protection.


The slagger


The Slagger® cutting table is like no other in its ability to move slag. Whether produced from oxyfuel or plasma cutting, slag moves from one side of the table and deposits the slag into a collection bucket at the end of the table in just minutes.


burn table

Down Draft Table

The downdraft cutting table is like no other cutting table anywhere. The downdraft is specially designed to work with smaller machines and has a maximum plate capacity of 3" thick plate.
