MSF Pipe series
High-speed solution for 3D processing
of pipes and profiles with
a high automation degree
MSF Pipe | Laser cutting of pipes and profiles
MicroStep has developed the MSF Pipe for the process-reliable, highly precise and fast 2D as well as 3D processing of pipes and profiles with fiber lasers. The fiber laser cutting system enables the precise processing of pipes up to 12 meters in length and 500 mm in diameter, as well as profile cutting up to a length of 12 meters and an edge length of 350 mm. The system has an extremely high degree of automation. Loading, unloading and sorting of cut parts can also be automated. The patented ACTG® calibration unit ensures process reliability by automatically calibrating the tools used.
The highly dynamic machine is perfectly suited for the production of high-precision parts at high cutting speeds – allowing the realization of finest contours and openings but also precise bevel cuts. The fiber laser system, which offers a choice of laser sources with a power of up to 10 kW, has amazingly low maintenance and operating costs. Optionally, the pipe and profile specialist can also be expanded to include an additional work area for processing plates.
Renowned companies such as BOSCH rely on the high productivity and process-reliable precision of the MSF Pipe.

Software from MicroStep® – developed especially for cutting
To allow you to concentrate fully on your production, our MicroStep® software solutions, drawings and cutting plans help you to intuitively convert them into finished components. Part of our product range also includes automation solutions for the organization of your entire cutting process.
Asper Basic is the ideal tool for an easy and fast creation of NC programs for different cutting technologies (plasma, oxyfuel, laser or waterjet).
With Asper Nesting, you can easily and intuitively nest component drawings into efficient cutting plans.
mCAM is an efficient tool for the automated 3D production on pipes, profiles, domes, IPE carriers but also flat sheets with cutting systems of different technologies.
MPM Production Management
MPM forms the basis for automated cutting. It automatically nests complex cutting jobs and projects on the right material and distributes the cutting plans to cutting machines for processing.
Handles even the most complex cutting tasks – the iMSNC® machine control
iMSNC® from MicroStep is one of the most advanced control systems for CNC cutting machines. It was developed to easily, reliably, and efficiently turn cutting plans into finished parts with the help of a clear and modern user interface.
MSF Pipe iMSNC® machine control
Intelligent solution for cross-technology work with the laser cutting system
The system consists of a stand-alone control console with a 24" TFT touchscreen monitor. If cameras are implemented in the interior, the existing touchscreen can be supplemented with an additional screen for displaying live images. In order to achieve maximum utilization and flexibility of our machines, the ergonomic control console offers you the possibility – parallel to running cutting processes – to nest new cutting programs and generate additional CNC codes. As the iMSNC® control system and all CAM software solutions come from our company, the software with its versatile modules can be individually customized for your production. Parameter databases for individual technologies enable consistently high quality under various circumstances. iMSNC® comes with multiple efficient evaluation tools for production process optimization. These provide you with the much-needed overview of current cutting orders, cutting times, cost calculations and machine utilization in day-to-day production.
