The modern structural steel buildings are made with profiles (beams, U-channels, angles, tubes) that are joined and bolted one to the other.
Straight and mitred cuts are carried out with modern sawing systems, shaped cuts on profile edges or on web and flanges, instead have always been a problem. Now the new Ficep FLEX thermal coping robot can manage these processes easily.
The Ficep robotic coper allows the torch to move and orientate (using plasma or oxyfuel cutting). It is also possible to carry out coping of programmed shapes previously stored in the CNC library. With the new revolutionary automatic tool changer the change from oxy to plasma cutting has been reduced to minimum.
