Automated 6-Axis Structural Steel Robotic Beam Cutting Machine

Posted By: Susan Bishop Industry News,

Saint-Marc-des-Carrieres, QC - Beamcut Systems recently updated its BC25, a user-friendly, versatile, robotic 3D CNC cell and platform for cutting metal parts and profiles for virtually any structural steel shape in the industry. With high-definition Hypertherm plasma technology and Fanuc robotics, the BC25 is a totally automated 6-axis beam cutting system that provides maximum optimization of the manufacturing process. This, in-turn, improves overall repeatability and accuracy while eliminating bothersome layout work before cutting, and time-consuming and costly grinding after profiles are cut.

Along with an automated in-feed and out-feed system on a smaller footprint, the BC25 has features unique to the industry, including a Photo-Laser Measuring Device that allows split-second profiling and positioning to guarantee a precise cut. There is an advanced Windows-based Operator Control System that is easy-to-use and does not require special operator training. Proprietary Beamcut Soft software utilizes DSTV files from 3D profiling software and 2D DXF AutoCAD files. Once files are imported, Beamcut Soft automatically simulates the cutting sequence. An automatic cutting trajectory is created and verified on the drafting computer instead of the machine. The BC25 incorporates a safety enclosure and smoke trap that delimits the space required for robotic cutting and the circulation area around the system. A safety cabinet complies with OSHA safety standards. An optional dust collector is available to remove smoke and dust particles.


With Beamcut Systems BC25, manufacturers and steel fabricators can expect a totally automated beam cutting solution that’s as much as 20% less than competitive options, providing a quicker ROI. They can also expect exceptional aftermarket support.


Beamcut Systems is part of the Machitech Automation Group, with over 20 years of experience and over 1,800 machines installed worldwide. Automation Group areas include CNC plasma cutting systems from Machitech, fiber laser cutting systems from Alpha Lazer, light industrial CNC plasma cutting tables from Maverick CNC, heavy-duty industrial CNC routers from Total Cut, and robotic beam cutting systems from Beamcut Systems.
