Tube and beam cutting cell

The combined tube and beam cutting cell is the ultimate solution for flexible offshore construction. A continuous flow of production is achieved as the system is able to proceed cutting while loading or unloading takes place at the other side.

Tube and beam cutting system

Flexible tube and beam cutting

It features a large industrial robot with an oxy-fuel and plasma cutting torch. The cutting robot makes all sorts of 3D cuts to both tubes and beams. The floating chuck rotates tubes up to 2.3 meters in diameter with high precision. Special software compensates for deviations in the material to cope with the high accuracy demands in offshore construction.

Ease of operation

A continuous production flow is achieved as the system is able to proceed cutting while (un)loading takes place at the other side. The operator is supported in his tasks through a graphical user interface. This ensures flexibility and easy operation of the system. New cuts are added by entering parameters, such as pipe dimension and cutting angle, at the touch screen. Also, a CAD interface can be implemented for a direct data connection.

Tube and beam cutting system with smart chuck
Smart adaptive chuck
The smart chuck adapts to tube unroundness to increase accuracy. Tubes can be fed through the open chuck for cutting on both ends, which saves a lot of time.
Tube and beam cutting system high accuracy using laser
High accuracy: laser calibrated
The robot is laser calibrated, which gives it unmatched accuracy. The results are better fitting tubes and beams, saving you valuable hours on rework and manual welding.
Tube and beam cutting system measuring the product
Adapt to the product
Before the actual cutting, all tubes and beams are measured at multiple points. The cutting path is adapted accordingly, to create better fitting parts for your products.
