Where is the Dragon A400 made?
Your Dragon A400 is proudly assembled here in the USA. All of our departments are located in our 36,000 square foot facility in Osceola, Wisconsin. Almost all of the parts are from the Minneapolis & St. Paul area here in the Midwest.
Does the software have import, export, CAD/CAM, and designer abilities?
Yes. The Dragon CAD/CAM software can import/export to and from many of the commonly used CAD programs (such as Solidworks, Inventor, AutoCAD, PRO Engineer, Tekla, SDS2, etc.) and can be used as a design program.
How does the Dragon A400 load?
From the front, back, top, or either side; it depends on how your shop is set up and what you are cutting. There are multiple ways to easily load material. The tube can be placed in the front gate, then tightened into the self-centering four jaw chuck, and then the front gate can be closed to the correct amount of tightness on the material. Usually, loading takes one person.
What is the cut speed?
The cut speed varies based on a variety of factors; including material size, cut design, material type, tolerance requirements, material thickness, the use of a coolant system, and others. Depending on the variables, the torch can run up to 120 inches per minute while cutting. Between cutting, the rapid travel can run up to 1100 inches per minute (X-axis) and 30 RPM (Y-axis).
What is the cut quality/dross level?
The dross level varies based on a variety of factors; including amperage used, cut speed, material size, cut design, material type, tolerance requirements, and material thickness. Optional coolant circulation system can greatly improve the cut quality and dross level. You can request a benchmark/sample package to see the Dragon cut parts in person.
What is the tolerance on the cuts?
+/- 0.010” (0.254mm)
