Structural Steel Composite Beams

steel beams inside a concrete building under constructionComposite beams are typically made up of multiple steel beams or steel beams with other materials such as concrete, to create a stronger and more versatile building component than traditional steel beams.

Fabricating Structural Steel for Composite Beams

Though not made entirely of structural steel like traditional I-beams and other types of beams, composite beams still require structural steel components. And just like structural steel beams, the steel in composite beams must be fabricated to exact specifications in order for it to be usable in the building design. To ensure perfection and timely deliveries, structural steel and plate fabrication shops rely on the power of BeamCut, the industry’s most advanced CNC plasma cutting technology.

Designed to Take Your Shop to the Next Level

BeamCut is equipped with the industry’s leading structural steel fabrication technology to speed up production and help fabrication shops get ahead in the industry. These state-of-the-art features include:

FANUC Robotics

BeamCut’s robotic arm is manufactured by FANUC, the world leader in automated technology. The six-axis robotic arm can bevel 360 degrees and process any shape or profile in the industry, including those required by composite beam construction. It is also three times stronger and lasts three times longer than the industry standard.

Hypertherm Plasma

The legendary XPR300 plasma system from Hypertherm—renowned for its power—is a standard feature on BeamCut. This system can handle nearly any type of fabrication, including x–y cutting and chamfering. For even better performance, BeamCut can be upgraded to the HPR400XD system.

CNC Software

BeamCut’s CNC software is remarkably easy to use and comes fully loaded with a shapes library, as well as CAD and CAM for creating custom shapes. In the software’s 3D simulation, fabricators can manually calibrate cutting tolerances, nest parts, and track robotic cut paths before the work begins, preventing costly cutting mistakes.

An All-in-One Design

This impressive robotic plasma cutting beam and coping machine replaces drill lines, punches, band saws, layout and marking stations, and coping and grinding stations, performing all the tasks required by these pieces of equipment in one pass. This helps structural steel and plate fabrication companies free up space inside their shops and maintain a lean workforce, as BeamCut only needs one technician to operate.

Faster Production of Composite Beams

Thanks to BeamCut’s automated operations, fabrication shops can reduce their production time by as much as 80%. That’s a substantial return on investment! Maintaining quality work and on-time deliveries is integral to success, and BeamCut helps professional fabricators get there.
