All-in-One Design: Processing Every Step of Structural Steel Fabrication
The benefits of BeamCut, the industry’s most advanced CNC robotic plasma cutting technology, are virtually boundless for structural steel fabricators. For instance, the six-axis FANUC robotic arm, fueled by the latest X-Definition Hypertherm plasma, can bevel 360 degrees and can process any shape or profile, even HSS and pipes. Another key benefit that helps fabrication companies get ahead in a crowded market is BeamCut’s all-in-one design.
BeamCut can free up valuable real estate within your shop by replacing:
- Punches – for punching holes through the material
- Drill lines – for drilling and smoothing the surface of holes
- Band saws – for cutting steel materials
- Coping and grinding stations – for cutting reliefs into parts to fit with other components
- Layout and marking stations – for manually marking the materials where cuts are needed
BeamCut can handle all these processes in a single pass. And, this all-in-one design delivers many more benefits than just freeing up space in your shop.
Traditionally, steel materials would need to be manually moved between each tool for every step of the fabrication to be processed. Excessive material handling has disadvantages. First, the more times a material is moved, the more susceptible it is to damage. Considering the size of structural steel materials, there is also a safety risk to the handler if a mistake is made. By minimizing material handling, BeamCut ensures the integrity of the raw materials, reduces waste, and better protects your staff.
BeamCut’s CAD/CAM/CNC software is designed for ease of use. With its all-in-one interface, BeamCut only requires one technician to operate, allowing you to save on costs by maintaining a lean workforce. While BeamCut works its magic with its automated, multi-process fabrication, you’ll be free to move on to another project, streamlining your roster. In fact, BeamCut can reduce your production time by as much as 80%, delivering a phenomenal return on investment.
Other Benefits of the CAD/CAM/CNC Software
BeamCut’s software includes a robust profile library consisting of all the most popular shapes in the structural steel industry. You can also create your own profiles with CAD before moving to CAM and CNC for processing. And, by manually calibrating cutting tolerances and tracking robotic cutting paths in the 3-D simulation, you can prevent costly cutting mistakes.
