The Vanguard is our premier series CNC plasma cutting machine designed for speed, reliability, and longevity. Specially engineered with a low center of mass, the Vanguard achieves exceptional traverse speeds up to 3,000 IPM. Our robust rail system and mechanical components are built for maximum tolerance and require minimal maintenance for prolonged stability. Combined with the Hypertherm XPR plasma cutting system and EDGE Connect TC CNC, the Vanguard is a leading competitor in production output and superior cut quality.
