Since mid-2019, the EasyCut cutting system from MicroStep has been taking care of the Yards cutting jobs in the higher material thickness range. This flame cutting system is equipped with four oxyfuel torches. Many items are cut on this machine and this includes flanges with blind holes for mechanical engineering. Together with the MG plasma cutting machine, cutting tasks in the thickness range from 3.5 to 200 mm are processed.
A DRM-PL gantry from Microstep, which was built on top of an existing panel line, is also available for the processing of large-format sheets. Panels form the basic framework of decks and the external skeleton and can reach a size of up to 16 x 18 m. The MicroStep gantry of the panel cutting line has a width of more than 18 m with technology options for bevel cutting using an oxyfuel rotator, a primer removing sandblasting system, and a marking unit.
The EasyCut is a robust and precise CNC guiding machine, which has been specially developed for cost-effective continuous use in oxyfuel flame cutting. The working area is 16.500 x 3.000 mm.
“The accuracy is excellent, the dimensional stability of the machine is unbeatable,” said Jan Fust – Manager Steel Construction at German Naval Yards Kiel.
The entire cutting operation is supported by MicroStep machines, which shows the flexibility of our machines and the adaptability of the MicroStep Cutting Systems. No matter the size needed, MicroSteps’ technology team is able to assist and is constantly working on new angles to be more innovative. Technology is ever changing and so are the MicroStep Cutting System offerings.
