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 Components
Messer offers a variety of process tools. All Messer machines are completely customized. The benefits of a customized cutting machine fit for your company’s needs can make you the leader of productivity in your industry. When you need a machine that outperforms all others and provides you with the capability of bevel cutting, drilling, tapping, and marking, all on a variety of materials from thin plate to thick steel with an excellent cut part quality, then Messer Cutting Systems is your machine of choice.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Camfil APC is one of the top dust collector manufacturers worldwide with over 50 years of experience. Their dust collectors are specially engineered and designed with cutting machines in mind.
Donaldson provides filtration systems and replacement parts. Since 1915, Donaldson has developed its innovative technology, built strong customer relationships, and developed a broad geographic presence. Today they offer some of the highest quality dust collectors on the market.
Global Control Plus
Easy-to-use, feature rich, Windows® interface. The Global Control Plus has a 24” touch screen with multiple process databases. A few of the key features include custom shape library, true shape nesting and productivity monitoring. Remote diagnostics and applications support is available with a push of a button.
MesserSoft OmniWin software is a simple, clear and fast designing and nesting software developed by MesserSoft. This software specially created for Messer machines, adapts intelligently, taking over cutting tasks for order-based production with additional CNC thermal cutting machines.
