The thermal fabrication of structural steel has turned the page to a new level of productivity and versatility with the FICEP RAZ. FICEP has manufactured thermal cutting plasma robots for over 20 years and during this period they have developed many new technological advances to increase the capabilities of this technology. Originally it was primarily for copes and cut-off but with the introduction of Hypertherm's "True Hole Technology" this has opened the door for additional versatility such as the generation of bolt holes.
The FICEP RAZ thermal cutting robot employs a new leading edge laser technology to scan the structural sections surfaces in seconds to eliminate the need for touch probing for each cut. This technology drastically reduces the non-productive functions when cutting structural steel sections.
FICEP's patented scribing technology automatically extracts not just the cuts but all the intersecting locations of the connecting sections. With this information all the layout marks, orientation and weld symbols are added to the marking portion of the program automatically to eliminate manual layout and reduce errors.
The extended reach of the RAZ robot also has full 4 side capability for both the cutting and laying out of structural steel sections.
These are just a few of the many benefits of the FICEP RAZ plasma cutting robot.
