Maintaining Quality Control in Structural Steel Fabrication

structural steel beams in an assembly for a bridgeThough a structural steel beam may not be as fanciful in appearance as an ornate steel staircase or another custom-fabricated architectural component, fabricating structural steel is just as much an art form. Fabrication companies that specialize in structural steel must deliver products that perfectly match the architect’s blueprints. And maintaining quality control is about more than just ensuring precise cutting; it also applies to the quality of the delivery. That is to say, delivering a finished product on time is just as important as the quality of the structural steel itself.

CNC Plasma Cutting Technology—A Vital Resource for Structural Steel Fabrication

If you own a structural steel fabrication business, and you’re looking to improve quality control and on-time deliveries, equip your shop with the power of BeamCut, the industry’s leading robotic plasma cutting system. BeamCut features industry-leading technology, including user-friendly CNC software, to help take your business to the next level of success. The benefits of automation are many and include:

Perfect Fabrications of Structural Steel and Plate

BeamCut’s CNC software is fully loaded with a robust library of common shapes and profiles. It also includes CAD functionality for custom shapes. Once the profile and material are loaded, pressing the start button is all it takes for BeamCut to take over and perfectly process the structural steel and plate. Getting cuts right on the first pass eliminates mistakes and wasted materials.

Faster Production and On-Time Deliveries

Another great benefit of BeamCut’s automated operations is that they can process structural steel and plate much more quickly than a team of fabricators with handheld torches ever could. BeamCut can remove bottlenecks in your operations and reduce production time by as much as 80%. That’s an outstanding return on investment, as you’ll be able to meet your customers’ deadlines more easily and free up space in your schedule to add new customers.

Lower Operating Costs

Minimizing wasted materials and speeding up production are two optimal ways to lower operating costs. Consider also that using BeamCut requires no specialized training, and it can be operated by a single technician. This will allow you to maintain a lean workforce, saving on labor costs.

Other Features of BeamCut

In addition to its advanced CNC software, BeamCut features a six-axis FANUC robotic arm that can bevel 360 degrees and process any shape or profile in the industry, even pipe and HSS. These robotics are three times stronger and last three times longer than the industry standard. Additionally, BeamCut is equipped with Hypertherm X-Definition plasma, one of the most powerful plasma systems available. All of these state-of-the-art features work together to deliver exceptional performance, helping structural steel fabrication companies get ahead in a crowded industry.
