The typical applications that a robot is requested to perform often can require burning of very thick material or locations in the web that are very close to the flange.

In these applications it is not possible to utilize a plasma torch because of the diameter of the torch body and the maximum thickness capability. For this reason the Ficep robotic coping systems come equipped with both an oxy-fuel and plasma torch integrated into the robot head with a change over time of just one second.

The robot is equipped with a laser scanner that in a matter of seconds surveys the actual profile surfaces so it is not necessary to probe with the torch for each start location.

  • The torch hose and cables are integrated into the arm of the robot to eliminate potential damage from sparks, plasma dust and cable whip.
  • The Cartesian robot design minimizes the axis movement when compared to general purpose robots that generally have to engage all axis to achieve a thermally generated cut.



The drill/coper tandem system has many advantages such as:

  • Requires less than half the space of a conventional split system.
  • Smaller capital investment.
  • Single operator.
  • The drill operator no longer waits for the coper operator or vice versa.
  • Positioning of the coper after the drill eliminates the minimum length finished part that can be off loaded on the exit side of the system.
  • One common CNC controls all of the functions of the coper and the drill automatically.
  • Full robotic programmable motion for weld prep in both flanges and the web.
  • Ability to cut the bottom side of square tubes.
  • Optimized routine copes the trailing end of one section, leading end of the next section and cuts the sections to length in one optimized cycle.
  • Low maintenance cost due to the utilization of a standard PC platform.
  • The Ficep software eliminates the requirement for additional hardware such as third party axis control boards, PLC hardware and encoder switching boards.
  • The Ficep Windows based control is provided with the proprietary Ficep software for remote diagnostics through an internet connection.
  • Full single and compound miter cutting so the flange cuts accurately align with the web miter angle.
  • Full integration of drilling, coping, end preparation, cut off and more!!!!
