HGG’S new Multi-Profile Cutting (MPC) machine is designed for manufacturers with production volumes that cannot justify dedicated machines for profiling pipe alone. It can be configured to cut a variety of profile shapes, including pipes, box sections, angle bars, and flat sheet metal strips.
Users can configure the machine to cut pipes, with the material positioned on pipe supports and then clamped in three jaws of the chuck; to cut box sections, with the material positioned on pipe supports in rotators and then clamped in two diagonally opposite jaws of the chuck; or to cut profiles from bar flat stock, with the material positioned and individually fixed on a flat cutting table.
The unit is designed for production automation and to be an integral part of the manufacturing process, from design and work preparation to the cutting, fitting, and welding of parts. It can be programmed using the company’s MDI (manual data input) and/or ProCAD software.
