Reducing Waste in Structural Steel Fabrication

Reducing Waste in Structural Steel Fabrication

Reducing Waste in Structural Steel FabricationStructural steel fabricators who are looking to edge out the competition can rely on BeamCut, the industry’s leading CNC plasma cutting technology, to help them get ahead. One way BeamCut can do this is by reducing waste in your shop. Wasted materials, usually caused by cutting mistakes or mishandling during transition from one step of the fabrication to the next, can eat into costs and make a project that much more expensive to complete. Thanks to BeamCut’s quality-assurance features and all-in-one design, cutting mistakes are all but eliminated and material handling is minimized.

Quality-Assurance Features

BeamCut’s user-friendly CAD/CAM/CNC software allows you to manually calibrate cutting tolerances and track robotic cutting paths in a 3-D simulation so that you can spot any cutting mistakes before they happen. And, with photo-laser profiling and linear-laser measuring, both included standard, you can count on 100% accurate cuts every time, virtually eliminating wasted materials caused by cutting mistakes.

All-in-One Design

BeamCut is designed to handle every step of the fabrication process in one pass, replacing punches, drill lines, band saws, coping and grinding stations, and layout and marking stations. By eliminating the need for manually moving materials for each of these processes, material handling and the risk of damage that comes with it is minimized. This all-in-one design will also allow you to:

  • Free up space in your shop
  • Maintain a lean workforce
  • Speed up your production

Other Features

BeamCut’s 50 kg, six-axis FANUC robotic arm can bevel 360 degrees and can process any shape or profile in the structural steel industry. And, with the latest X-Definition plasma from Hypertherm as its power source, BeamCut is truly the most advanced robotic plasma cutting technology in the market.
