VeriCUT’s Crossflow cutting tables, manufactured at VeriForm, help other manufacturers become more efficient when cutting sheet metal and plate. The tables use 66 percent smaller dust collectors to achieve nearly 99 percent smoke removal. The number of installations across Canada and in Florida, Mississippi and Minnesota is rapidly growing. 

The mechanical, high-efficiency smoke and dust removal tables use a zone approach that provides localized smoke removal. The dust collection system draws smoke only from the area of cutting rather than from across the entire table width or length. Rak explained, “Our 100 percent downdraft tables draw smoke from as much as 24 in. above the cutting surface and at up to 48-in. distances along the table length. They are 100 percent mechanical, meaning they have no motors, PLCs, pneumatics, or other powered devices. The benefit of being mechanical is that the tables have practically zero parts that need replacing or will jam up during production. And they are efficient as a result of the zoning. Dust collectors and energy requirements are therefore reduced tremendously, and those monies can be reinvested elsewhere in the company.”
