Combining robot welding and cutting, for ultimate flexibility. Creating and easy to use and reliable operation. Making optimal use of your limited floorspace with this combined beam and tube cutting cell, saving you hours of valuable time.
Combined beam and tube cutting cell
Besides steel profiles and beams, also round tubes are used as construction elements for structural steel industries. In practice, these profiles have large milling tolerances, resulting in large cutting deviations. KRANENDONK has developed special software to compensate profile tolerances giving exact dimensioned cuts. Since connections now fit much better, there is sustainable saving in welding hours.
Beam cutting functionality
Especially for H-beam cutting, KRANENDONK developed Dynamic Flexibility Production (DFP) software in ARAC, which automatically adapts the robot program to the tolerances in H-beams. Not only does the beam have to fit, but because the structure will have to be welded, also a welding bevel must be provided. The system is ready to cut typical T, K and Y connections required for full penetration welding.
