Au­tomat­ing steel fab­ri­ca­tion gives pro­duc­ers the edge

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PRODUCT WATCH -

The Me­taltek XB se­ries 10-axis struc­tural steel fab­ri­ca­tion sys­tem from Ad­vanced Ro­botic Tech­nol­ogy may be one so­lu­tion to deliver jobs faster.

“We de­vel­oped the Me­taltek XB se­ries to an­swer the need for fully au­to­mated struc­tural steel pro­cess­ing in one ma­chine,” says com­pany di­rec­tor David White.

“To elim­i­nate as much man­ual labour as pos­si­ble we in­cluded full ma­te­rial han­dling, and all func­tions are au­to­mated and sim­ple to op­er­ate. The whole ma­chine is de­signed to re­duce labour and dou­ble han­dling while in­creas­ing pro­duc­tiv­ity and prof­its.”

With a foot­print of 3750mm x 3600mm, Me­taltek XB of­fers full four-sided plasma pro­cess­ing for the steel fab­ri­ca­tion in­dus­try, ad­vanced CNC ro­bot­ics, high­def­i­ni­tion plasma cut­ting and in-house de­vel­oped user-friendly soft­ware and con­trol in­ter­face. More­over, three-axis ma­te­rial han­dling con­veyor sys­tems and crosstrans­fer con­vey­ors for load and un­load­ing elim­i­nates a large per­cent­age of lift­ing, flip­ping and mov­ing of steel mem­bers be­tween ma­chines.

The ma­chine is suit­able for hot and cold rolled struc­tural steel profiles,. All copes, mitres, square cuts, slots and holes can be cut au­to­mat­i­cally. Full bevel weld preps can be ap­plied to all sur­faces in­clud­ing un­der­neath.
