2.0 About VALIANT 2.0 Series Portable CNC Cutting Machines

The spring-loaded drive motor system has been totally upgraded for SteelTailor Valiant 2.0 Series to ensure the optimised structure for the cantilever type portable machines.

The machine has been totally revised to enable a much longer lifetime, better precision and stability, easier installation and smoother motion. The new version of Valiant can be assembled and disassembled easily and simply.

Due to the removal of the spring, the positioning precision of the machine is unified in the effective cutting range. The dimension of the cut-work is also more accurate and precise.

SteelTailor CNC plasma cutting machines are supplied with high quality Hypertherm Plasma cutting units.
