HGG, specialists in 3D profiling, recently introduced the new Robotic Profile Cutting Line RPC 2.0. Able to cut both bolted and welded connections, the RPC 2.0 is well suited for either offshore or steel construction, performing 3D profiling to beam coping, including cutting I/H beams and square/ rectangular tubing profiles. Also known as a Plasma Beam Profiler, the RPC 2.0 dramatically increases accuracy, quality and overall productivity with new technological feature innovations that eliminate time-consuming machine tactility.

The RPC 2.0 incorporates HGG's unique laser beam measurement vision system, automatically scanning beams for common imperfections, including flanges that are not always perfectly straight and bodies that are off-center and/or twisted, resulting in superior accuracy and perfect hole technology. The RPC 2.0 combines HGG's unique electronic measuring devices that compare the actual outside shape and position dimensions of the raw material to the cutting program, automatically compensating for any deviation on-the-fly without interrupting material preparation or profile cutting time. Along with better quality profiles and faster cutting, overall productivity is improved because less grinding is required after parts are cut, which also improves plant safety.

The new HGG RPC 2.0 Line includes enough components for a complete fabrication shop in one machine. That includes dedicated HGG software for programming and work preparation, an in-feed roller conveyor and out-feed roller conveyor for smooth and efficient material handling, a cutting and marking cell with integrated downdraft table, a robotic plasma profile cutter for precision cutting and to provide the freedom to cut without limitations, a touch-screen operator interface with built-in macro shapes, and a laser vision system with electronic measuring devices.

HGG, headquartered in Middenmeer, Netherlands, is a leading supplier of pipe cutting machines, robotic profile cutting lines and associated cutting equipment solutions around the world.

HGG Middle East FZE would once again like to invite your company's participation at the 14th edition of SteelFab 2018, scheduled for 15th ó18th January 2018, at Expo Centre Sharjah, United Arab Emirates. Along with our new HGG RPC 2.0 for Beam Coping to 3D Profiling, we will be featuring HGG product solutions for Structural Steel Fabrication, Process Piping and Vessel Cutting.

SteelFab 2017 proved once again that it was a must-attend event for the regional steel fabrication and metal working industry. It featured 35o direct exhibitors and attracted 7,950 trade visitors from 83 Countries. More than l000 brands were exhibited during the four-day show. It attracted a higher visitor footprint from the Indian Subcontinent, North Africa and Central Asia, while visitors from the GCC also showed a steady growth.

We expect Steel Fab 2018 to be even better and look forward to seeing you there.
