The DS series
Efficient cutting and drilling solution
with a high degree of automation
DS series | The automatic process line
The automated plate processing line DS was designed for high-efficiency drilling and cutting with the possibilities of automatic plate feeding and automatic part sorting on output. The machine is dedicated to heavy-duty structural steel applications such as production of high-precision fittings, gussets and end plates.
The DS series was designed for a high level of automation within the factory workflow as a time- and cost-effective production solution for certain types of flanged parts.
A special version of the machine – the DS-B – is dedicated to automatic dual drilling, tapping and marking of hollow profiles with square or rectangular cross-sections. The work area of the machine consists of a rotary drilling support with two turret drilling heads, each having 6 tool positions. The DS-B machine can process hollow sections up to 300 x 300 mm with a length of up to 12 m.

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.
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.
MicroStep iMSNC® machine control
The intelligent solution for multi-technology work
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. The system’s hardware consists of a stand-alone control console with a TFT touchscreen and a control panel with an LCD display mounted on the gantry. In order to achieve maximum utilization and flexibility of our machines, the ergonomic control console offers the opportunity to nest new cutting programs and generate new CNC codes during an ongoing cutting process. 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.
