Beam Cutting Machine

Are you looking for a beam cutting machine that truly cuts all profiles? The RPC 1200 Mk3 is world’s first beam coping robot that also profiles pipes. The all-in-one solution developed by the industry leader in thermal 3D cutting. The most versatile beam cutting solution available in the market.

MORE INFORMATION

Cuts all profiles.

Cuts all profiles.

We fulfil a long-time desire by introducing a Beam Coping machine which can Profile Beams, angle bar, channel, square tubes, but also pipes, plates, T-bars and bulb.

Laser measurement

Laser measurement

By utilizing our high-tech laser measurement technology, we eliminate secondary processing as we compensate material deviations on-the-fly.

Layout marking

Layout marking

We focus on the overall process and save up to 20% in fit-up by making use of plasma layout and text marking, reducing the overall throughput time substantially.

"We’ve often been given items to cut that haven’t been able to be cut before and the customers  were impressed that we are now able to do this with our coping robot."

    Beam Coping Applications

    What is the biggest struggle in your fabrication process? Is it the complexity of the design, the poor production flow management, the inefficient material handling with too much material waste, the loss of control over the operating expenses, or the lack of skilled welders? Then, how do you deal with the increasingly tough demands and regulations on welded and bolted structural design?

    Steel Construction

    With the RPC 1200 Mk3 beam cutting machine, you have an entire fabrication shop in a single machine. This coping robot is developed to replace multiple traditional lines, such as beam drill, band saw, angle line, marking line and pipe profiling machine. The RPC 1200 Mk3 is a high-performance plasma beam cutting machine that reduces processing time by 30%, while also only requiring 20% of the original floor space. With our Perfect Hole™ technology, you can cut accurate bolt holes. With optional plate cutting equipment, plates can be processed for baseplates and add-on parts. A unique functionality is the possibility to cut round tubes.

    Industry application: Beam coping for the fabrication of building structures, bridges, railroad, trailers, train wagons, stair stringers, handrails and other secondary steel.

    Offshore

    For traditional beam coping, profilers use oxy-fuel cutting which still requires grinding before welding can begin. The RPC 1200 Mk3 is a high-performance box section and beam cutting machine that easily reduces processing/fabrication time by 30%, while also reducing the grinding time after cutting. The RPC beam cutting machine was developed to cut 100% of the common offshore cuts, including rat holes, which gives 100% freedom to design project specific connections.

    Industry application: Beam coping for top sites, living quarters, subsea structures, subsea frames, support structures, pipe racks, protection frames for subsea manifolds, H-beam coping for skids, subsea structures, and support frames.

    Onshore Process

    For traditional H-beam coping, profilers use oxy fuel cutting while still requiring grind work. The RPC 1200 is a high performance plasma beam cutting machine that reduces processing time by 30%, while reducing grinding after cutting as well. In this industry, the RPC 1200 beam cutting machine is typically used for profiling flush beam connections for the fabrication of skids and profiling of box sections for subsea structure and support frames.

    Industry application: H-beam coping for skids, subsea structure and support frames
