Q 1500


Being the smallest model of the new Q series, the Q 1500 achieves precise plasma cuts at the highest level for material thicknesses of up to 60 mm and with a maximum cutting current of 150 A. Thanks to the modular design, the machine performance of the Q 1500 plus can later be upgraded and, thus, adapted to the customer’s requirements. New components and especially the operator interface Q-Desk meet the complex requirements of a digitalised production in the age of Industry 4.0. The specially developed browser-based operator interface Q-Desk provides real-time process data and information of all plant components on any standard device and location-independent. The user benefits from extensive information enabling him to plan and execute a variety of maintenance tasks as guided by the system. This generation of plasma cutting systems is the result of intensive research and development work by Kjellberg and a landmark in the 60 years of Kjellberg’s plasma history. The new digital plasma series Q sets pioneering standards regarding quality and connectivity.
