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.
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.
