Aviator DSD / DXD


Precision Dual-Side Drive System

The Complete Solution

The Aviator DXD from C&G Systems is the next generation of precision profile cutting solutions for any job shop or manufacturer. Aviator DXD builds on the strong heritage of our Aviator platform with many improvements. This new machine incorporates: dual-side servo drive motors, planetary gear boxes, a more robust drive system, Clean Deck design, and the latest CNC control systems from Hypertherm.


Base machine systems have been pre-configured with conventional or precision plasma systems from 65 amps to 300 amps. Thin gage sheet metal to 1 1/4” plate (32mm), Aviator DXD can handle your toughest plasma cutting jobs. For heavy duty cutting capacity, you may add an oxy-fuel cutting station. Plasma marking (XPR 170 or 300) or pneumatic air scribe may also be added for engraving bend lines or part numbers on plate.

Plasma Productivity

Aviator DXD delivers productivity. The Hypertherm EDGE Connect control provides precision motion control for both plasma and oxy-fuel cutting. Arc-off time between parts is extremely short with a rapid traverse speed of 1,000 IPM (25.4m/min.). The Hypertherm Sensor THC plasma torch height control system rapidly sets pierce height and maintain precise torch to plate distance while cutting. A Magnetic Torch Breakaway is standard.

C&G Systems has designed its DXD series of machines around Hypertherm’s SureCut Technology processes, which include True Hole and Rapid Part. By seamlessly integrating the full suite of genuine Hypertherm controls, ProNest software, and XD or XPR plasma systems, Superior hole quality and significant improvements in productivity are achieved. True Hole Technology automatically optimizes system settings to produce superior hole quality, often eliminating the need for secondary operations. Rapid Part intelligently retracts the torch to next pierce height with rapid Z-axis motion, pre-flows gases during IHS or during machine motion, and optimizes motions between cuts. This typically results in an 80% reduction in cut-to-cut cycle time, and a reduction in overall cycle time of 50% (most significant improvements are achieved on plates with high part/pierce counts). The Aviator DXD can be equipped with Hypertherm’s XPR 170 or XPR 300 plasma systems.

Unitized or Free-Standing Designs

Aviator DXD is available with unitized water or down-draft cutting tables (4’x8’, 5’x10’or 6’x12’), or available in 6’ and 8’ widths up to 28’ long for use with free-standing cutting tables.

Rapid Set-Up

Aviator DXD with unitized frame ships mostly assembled, so installation is quick and easy. The frame is leveled, cross beam set, tool carriage mounted, and the cables routed. You will be cutting parts within hours.

CAD/CAM Software

C&G Systems can provide you with a variety of professional CAD/CAM and nesting software packages to meet the demands of your particular application.
