MSF Pro series
The exclusive high-speed solution
for advanced laser cutting
The MSF Pro | Multifunctional 3D fiber laser cutting machine with a high automation level
MicroStep‘s precise laser all-rounder MSF allows for multi-functional processing of materials: 2D and 3D cutting of sheets with bevels up to 45°, drilling, tapping, countersinking as well as marking. The machine can be equipped with a turret drilling head for 6 tools that allows drilling up to 20 mm in diameter and tapping up to M16. Optionally, the cutting area can be extended by a pipe & profile cutting zone for processing of pipes up to 500 mm in diameter and a length up to 12 m, or hollow sections up to the size 350 x 350 mm.
Thanks to the patented ACTG® technology, MSF machines deliver consistent, highly precise bevel cutting results in a reliable process with minimum maintenance downtimes. Another innovative technology – ABP – offers the option of adding bevels to already cut parts, for example to thicker workpieces that were cut with plasma in advance. By default, MSF machines are equipped with automatic shuttle tables, whereas automatic material handling and sorting options for sheets, pipes and profiles are likewise available.
MSF machines are designed for production of highly accurate parts at high cutting speeds, with surprisingly low maintenance and operational costs. The outstanding dynamics of the MSF Pro series is achieved by a low-seated gantry, digital AC drives and precise planetary gears. The machines are equipped with state-ofthe- art fiber laser sources of powers up to 10 kW.
"The new solution enables us to meet the market’s high demands in regards to both the quantity of ordered parts and their quality, which is vital since the cut parts are further being processed at a robotic welding station."

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 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.
