Cutting of 3D rotary shapes and polygonal profiles
Standard configuration of a MicroStep machine in sheet and pipe cutting execution consists of a cutting table for placing the sheets and an exhausted shaft for positioning of pipes which is placed along the longitudinal side of table. The pipes are clamped in a rotary pipe cutting device located at the beginning or at the end of the shaft. In addition, special adapters for clamping of polygonal profiles or elbows can be attached to the pipe cutting device. For cutting of domes, a dome cutting area can be located behind or before the cutting table.
Furthermore, for big sized pipes, domes, or for special projects we deliver specialized machines like CPCut or DRM-D, or dedicated pipe cutting machines with optional automatic feeding of pipes.
The range of applications is wide: from precise multiple intersections of pipes, profiles, elbows and domes, creation of constant bevels for V welds and constant welding volumes for welding robots up to pipe intersections cut from plane sheets including bridges that prevent deformation of holes during bending. A special inclinable rotary table for domes was designed for convenient trimming of domes with a standard MicroStep rotator.
For all above applications MicroStep delivers own CAM software – dedicated applications PipeSel, SolidSel, DomeSel, ElbowSel, Profile cutting module – which include functions for advanced communication with MicroStep´s proprietary control system iMSNC®.
