SHIPBUILDING

The X-Definition Plasma Machine That Is Revolutionizing Structural Steel Fabrication for the Shipbuilding Industry

Shipbuilders across the United States can rely on the advanced robotic CNC technology of BeamCut. BeamCut is today’s state-of-the-art robotic plasma cutting technology that is capable of processing all structural steel fabrications in one pass. Integrated with the latest Hypertherm XPR300 plasma, BeamCut is virtually unequalled in cutting speed and cut quality, and its FANUC robotic arm is three times stronger and has three times the life expectancy of any rival robotic arm.

Lean Manufacturing for Marine Structural Steel Fabrication

BeamCut replaces five machines or more – traditional punches, drill lines, band saws, coping torch/layout stations, and etching/marking stations are yesterday’s news.  BeamCut greatly speeds up the fabrication process and increases production by up to 80 percent, not to mention frees up valuable floor space and minimizes material handling. There’s no need for more people. The entire fabrication process is run by a single technician.

Fully Automated Operation, No Mistakes & Surgically Precise Cuts

BeamCut’s easy-to-use 3D simulation software eliminates programming mistakes, reduces waste, and allows you to nest your parts and manually calibrate cutting tolerances before production begins. Then, it’s a simple matter of pulling up the file, loading the material, and pressing the start button. BeamCut’s fully automated FANUC robotic arm provides photo-laser guided precision and 360-degree processing, handling all matter of shipbuilding fabrications from block constructions to specialized metal working for ferries, barges, yachts, work boats, tankers, naval vessels, and ships alike.

Not Just a Machine – A Solution

BeamCut is the CNC plasma cutting technology that will take your shipbuilding steel fabrication business to whole new level. To provide you with the turnkey service and support you deserve, BeamCut Systems will provide installation, onsite training, and a three-year warranty. Plus, you’ll receive lifetime remote support at no extra charge – a phenomenal benefit to your operations.

BeamCut is the robotic plasma technology you’ve been waiting for that will elevate your marine structural steel fabrication like no other. To learn more, contact us today.

OPERATOR CONTROL SYSTEM
The Operator Control System is an industrial grade touch screen computer that is both powerful and easy to use. It features the most advanced windows based operating systems on the market.
HYPERTHERM PLASMA
Hypertherm’s versatile plasma systems have been designed and built for maximum efficiency and productivity for x-y cutting, chamfering and robotics operations. Combined with the Fanuc robot arm, it produces perfect bolt holes with no taper.
INFEED AND OUTFEED CONVEYORS
The Infeed and Outfeed Conveyors ensure precise and quick positioning of the material. They are manufactured of 4" heavy duty rollers mounted on pillow-blocks on solid heavy duty welded frame. A motor that is located in the central unit drives the conveyor rollers.
PHOTO-LASER MEASURING DEVICE
Our custom Photo-Laser Measuring Device is unique to the industry allowing automatic splitsecond profiling and positioning of your piece and guarantees the most precise cut possible.
MOBILE MEASURING UNIT
Our mobile measuring ensures continuous monitoring of the piece length by moving along the infeed conveyor following the piece. Its special design makes up to 2x more precise than other measuring devices.
SAFETY CABINET & SMOKE TRAP
The safety enclosure is state of the art. It serves to delimit the space reserved for robotic cutting and the circulation area around the system. Our safety latch work envelope door allows for easy access and will shut the machine down if opened during production. In addition, an air outlet with a market leading 4250 CFM blower makes it possible to extract the smoke (dust collector not included - optional) and prevents health risks associated with plasma smoke. The safety cabinet complies with OSHA and Canadian safety standards and may help lower insurance costs.
