The most advanced robotic plasma steel cutting system available

The PCR42 advanced robotic plasma steel cutting system combines CNC plasma cutting and torch technology with fully-automated robotics and vision systems. For structural steel cutting this delivers the perfect combination of speed, precision and full four-face operation. 

PCR42 reads your detailing files and then will:


Make bolt holes



Prep marks for connection plates, stiffeners & angle clips

Cut to length

The PCR42 robotic plasma cutting system does beam coping, notches, holes and weld preps, splits beams, and scribes plus marks on all four faces of H-beams, channels, angles, HSS and plates.

The PCR42′s cutting envelope covers all four faces of steel profiles, allowing for HSS cutting in a single pass and marking on all four sides.
The PCR42 is the first system of its kind in the world to plasma cut standard structural steel profiles, pipes and round tubes with the same plasma coping equipment.

The state-of-the-art PCR42 platform offers precise measuring methods not affected by excessive rust, debris or mechanical slippage, or by wear and tear.

In less than a day for your operator will learn how to use the PCR42 plasma cutter. The interface is very user friendly and simple to use. If you should ever need assistance, we’re just a click away.

For Structural Fabrication the PCR42 performs all these tasks and more:

  • Beam coper from CNC
  • Drill line
  • Coping machine
  • Beam fabrication
  • Structural bolt holes
  • Weld prep
  • Direct from your supplied files including Tekla, SDS/2

The 3D vision system includes smart technology which measures the actual dimensions of the part and compensates automatically for any variations in materials. The end result corresponds exactly to the information in the DSTV file.
World-class third-party suppliers and stringent design criteria provide a durable plasma cutting platform with very little maintenance necessary.

This plasma cutting unit is undoubtedly one of the easiest machines ever to position on your shop floor.

The PCR42 works directly from the DSTV files generated by your detailing software. There is no programming required. Our software uses your 3D CAD drawings to prepare the trajectories needed for the robotic plasma cutter.
