How A Downdraft Cutting Table Works

  • Custom design/build, from 4 x 4′ tables, to 20 x 100, to virtually any size
  • Many unique optional features available (e.g.: under-the-table hidden caterpillar tracks for tight spaces)
  • Retrofit available for existing installations
  • Inexpensive future expansion with bolt-in-place, fully self-contained table modules
  • More cost-effective than competitive or in-house table manufacturing
  • Mechanical design means more uptime


VeriCUT engineering staff have designed the smoke draw system so that it pulls smoke equally well across the full table width:

  • We cannot share with you the technology but what we can share is that the ducting has been engineered to have the same feet per minute air draw regardless of where the cutting torch is located across the table width.
  • Smoke as far away as 2-3 feet above the table can be drawn back down through table thereby avoiding contaminating the shop with smoke and dust.
  • Even sections of the table where small plates or cutouts already exist in the cut plate still have visibly good draw and minimal smoke missed. Watch the video for an actual demonstration of this amazing draw efficiency.

Do you want just one table and one dust collector but need two or more gantries to run on the table system? We have many systems on the market that run with just one table system and one dust collector and up to four gantries. We can maximize your investment to avoid purchasing extra dust collectors and incurring future maintenance, repair costs, and electrical bills for those same dust collectors.

Here are just a few more benefits of the VeriCUT Downdraft System:

Truly Superior Smoke & Dust Removal

  • More efficient extraction of smoke, fumes and dust
  • Improved employee health, longer service life for electronics and components
  • Air ducts 40% larger capacity than standard
  • Zone-by-zone ducting design reduces air make-up costs
  • No internal flanges to obstruct flow
  • Laser-cut, precision-fitted duct doors operate with a tight fit to improve air draw efficiency under their own weight
  • Higher dust recovery rates (up to 99%)
  • Less expensive dust collection system required due to smaller dust collector through the VeriCut design
  • CrossflowTM technology Telescopic ducting improves draw on extra-long tables
