Pipe and Profile Processing

More Information On Pipe and Profile Processing

A variety of products using pipe and profile processing are produced in the industrial sector : from simple spirit levels, containers or complete piping systems for cargo ships. Sometimes numerous different tubes and profiles are needed simultaneously for complex structures.

Possible Machine Structures


A pure pipe and profile editing solution. The entire machine concept is tuned to clamp pipes as quickly and economically as possible, to scan, to cut and eventually off load. In conjunction with the corresponding automation components, such as the automatic loading unit, the system can be equipped automatically with the correct profiles from the warehouse. The same applies for the collection and storage of finished components. Thanks to flexible cantilever designs, pipe diameters of up to 5.000 mm can be realized.

Workable profile shapes: round tubes, polygonal profiles, I, H, T, L, U- profiles (also complete separation and elbow pieces

Pipe and Profile Processing

Portal system with integrated pipe shaft

The big advantage of this design is the flexibility to edit both pipes and flat sheets. The built-in cutting table can be covered with frame elements if necessary and the entire surface used as a cutting table with a Micro Step – cutting system. For loading and unloading of pipes the machines portal is moved into the park position. Pipes can be safely placed with a crane onto the trestles and then clamped in the jaw chuck.

Possible cutting processes

Plasma: The tube and profile processing with plasma lends itself to wall thicknesses of 2 to 50 mm depending on the power source and all electrically conductive materials.

Laser: The laser tube offers very high cutting speeds in a thin range of 0.5 to 15 mm. The cuts are also very delicate and the heat input into the material is relatively low.

Oxyfuel: Despite the relatively low feed rates oxyfuel technology is very wear resistant, inexpensive, and also suitable for use with the MicroStep® R5 Rotator.

Waterjet: This cutting process allows extremely precise cuts with almost any material – all without heat input.
