- Plasma cutting
Compact, flexible and versatile: the MasterCut Compact is available as a complete package with plasma source and filter system. The cutting system stands for excellent cutting quality in plasma cutting and is also available with bevel cutting head for weld edge preparation.
The top product among the MicroStep cutting machines. It is built for permanent use in industry and meets the highest requirements for precision, performance and operability. The MG series is MicroStep's all-rounder and is a pioneer in the industry when it comes to multifunctionality and process reliability.
The DS series
The DS series is an automatic time and cost efficient process line for the processing of sheet metal and profiles. It is designed to be able to apply highly efficient holes and taps on flat material and square or rectangular profiles and to cut them using plasma or oxyfuel technology.
CPCut & PipeCut
The CPCut & PipeCut series
The cutting solution for pipes and profiles was developed for workpieces with large diameters and lengths. The CPCut & PipeCut series enables 3D processing of pipes and all common profile shapes with unit weights of up to 12 tons and can also be equipped with several torches (plasma, oxyfuel).
The ProfileCut series
The ProfileCut series is a true all-rounder in beam processing. Thanks to its robust construction and the generous work area, 3D profile & beam processing is possible up to 1,000 mm in height and 24 m in length. The use of the 120° bevel cutting head or a drilling support guarantees full flexibility.
- MasterCut Compact
The MSE SmartFL fiber laser cutting machine from MicroStep Europa is a powerful as well as affordable system for high-quality 2D laser cutting. The series is available in cutting areas from 1,500 x 3,000 up to 2,500 x 6,000 mm and can be equipped with laser sources of up to 12 kW.
MSF Compact series
The MSF Compact combines precise 2D laser cutting with compact design. The series is available in work areas from 1,000 x 2,000 mm to 1,500 x 3,000 mm and impresses above all with its small footprint and the usual high cutting quality. A manually extractable cutting table allows easy and uncomplicated loading and unloading.
The reliable fiber laser cutting machine for high-precision 2D cutting applications is available in three system formats with laser sources up to 8 kW – including an automatic shuttle table system as standard. The MSF Cut is a powerful production assistant to fulfill all standard tasks of fiber laser technology in a highly productive and high-quality configuration. Optionally, the laser cutting system can be further automated by MicroStep's material handling systems MSLoad, MSSort and MSTower.
- MSF Pro
MSF Max series
The MSF Max is the giant among fiber laser cutting solutions. Developed for processing large-format sheet metal for shipbuilding, it enables precise high-speed 3D processing of flat material. Thanks to the moving safety cabin, a work area size of up to 50 m length and 6 m width is available.
MSF Pipe series
A real expert for pipes and profiles: MicroStep has developed the MSF Pipe for the process-reliable, high-precision and fast 2D and 3D processing of pipes and profiles using fiber lasers. The system has an extremely high degree of automation. The loading and unloading as well as the sorting of cut parts can also be automated.
