MÜLLER OPLADEN impresses with universal flame cutting machine
Mobile compact machine cuts 3D contours on pipes up to 6 m long and up to 610 mm in diameter
MÜLLER OPLADEN has developed its RB 600/6 ECO Compact as a universal and mobile 3D pipe profile cutting machine for applications in workshops and on construction sites. This 6-CNC-axis machine processes pipes up to a piece weight of 4,000 kg, up to 6 m long and up to 610 mm in diameter. This series-produced machine without optional extras comes with an outstanding price/performance ratio enabling machine pay-back in the shortest time.
The RB 600/6 ECO Compact operates with macro-controlled software so that both simple and complex cuts can be programmed online very quickly with the aid of existing cutting macros from the MÜLLER OPLADEN database. Offline programming and the generation of cutting data via CAD/CAM links are also possible.
The machine has 6 CNC-controlled axes whose motion and speed are mutually adapted during the cutting process. This cybernetic procedure ensures the exact positioning of the workpiece in relation to the flame cutter in order to achieve precision cutting results.
The CNC axes of this pipe profile cutting machine are responsible for the rotation of the workpiece in the chuck (Y axis), the longitudinal motion of the cutting head along the workpiece axis (X axis), the oscillatory motion of the cutting head (B axis), the rotation of the cutting head (C axis), the height adjustment of the cutting head with the aid of a measuring system in the event of surface variations on the workpiece (Z axis) and the control of flame cutter distance in relation to the flame cutter’s angle of inclination during the cutting process (W axis).
The RB 600/6 ECO Compact is equipped with plasma cutting equipment. This system therefore effortlessly cuts wall thicknesses up to 30 mm and bevel angles up to 45°. Plasma equipment is distinguished by high cutting speed and its ability to cut steel and stainless steel.
The RB 600/6 ECO Compact is mounted on a sturdy frame and weighs just 4.5 metric tons. It is therefore easily transported by crane and truck to its place of operation and set up. For installation and operation it requires a footprint of just 9,000 x 3,000 mm.
