MicroStep's CombiCut for plate and pipe cutting on one machineClick image to enlarge

MicroStep's CombiCut machine combines cutting of pipes and plates on one machine platform. 

It is equipped with a plasma bevelling tool station a.k.a. rotator for cutting precise tube intersection as shown in the video. The machine also has an ACTG - a calibration station for the rotator, an oxy-fuel tool station for cutting thicker plates and a marker. It is installed at a Croation company Tubus d.o.o., a supplier of complex plumbing and fitting equipment for shipbuilding and offshore industries.

Laser cutting hot stamped parts

The TRUMPF TruLaser Cell Series 7000 is a high-end laser processing centre featuring minimal processing costs and maximum flexibility. Available with either a CO2 or solid state laser, the cell may used for cutting, welding and deposition welding. Featuring a 2 in 1 fiber solution that delivers the beam for cutting in the fiber core, and the beam for welding in the outer core, the transition from cutting to welding is minimal. In this video, the TruLaser Cell 7040 is shown cutting parts that have been hot stamped, one of many ideal applications for the fast, flexible and productive TruLaser Cell Series 7000.
