Four Ways to Get Ahead in the Structural Steel Fabrication Industry
Structural steel fabrication is a highly specialized trade that takes years of experience to perfect. Nonetheless, there is no shortage of exceptionally skilled fabricators out there. Even the most talented will find a crowded market that is hard to not just break into but also to excel in. If you’re a structural steel fabricator looking to edge out your competitors, there are four key ways you can succeed. And, you’ll find that BeamCut, the industry’s most advanced plasma cutting technology, can help you achieve these goals and attain a new level of success for your business.
It likely goes without saying, but to stand out from the pack, your fabrications need to be top-notch. Anything less than perfection and you’ll be left in the dust. BeamCut includes a six-axis FANUC robotic arm that can bevel 360 degrees, making easy work of any shape or profile in the industry. Additionally, with Hypertherm’s powerful XPR300 plasma as a fuel source, combined with photo-laser profiling and linear-laser measuring both included standard, BeamCut delivers perfectly precise cuts every time. You can impress your customers with exquisite fabrications that will truly leave them in awe.
Going hand in hand with quality work is meeting your customers’ deadlines—you certainly don’t want to be the reason why a project is delayed. Thanks to BeamCut’s fully automated operations, you’ll find a remedy to pinch points and bottlenecks in your production schedule. In fact, BeamCut can reduce your production time by as much as 80%! That’s an outstanding return on investment and a benefit that will certainly help you get ahead of your competitors.
The concept of lean manufacturing is simple: reduce overhead by optimizing your operations. BeamCut is designed to process every step of the fabrication in one pass and, therefore, will replace your shop’s drill lines, band saws, layout and marking stations, punches, and coping and grinding stations. By negating the need for each of these machines, BeamCut will free up space in your workshop and reduce maintenance costs. And, after you run your simulations in the CNC software, all you need to do is press the start button to begin the fabrication. Indeed, BeamCut only requires one technician to operate, allowing you to keep a lean workforce.
BeamCut’s user-friendly CAD/CAM/CNC software will allow you to manually calibrate cutting tolerances and track robotic cutting paths, all but erasing mistakes and wasted materials. And, again, thanks to BeamCut’s all-in-one design, you can greatly reduce the amount of material handling that is needed, decreasing the risk of accidents that can not only damage the steel beams but also cause harm to your staff.
