The multifunctional system
for highest requirements
The MG plasma cutting system | The all-rounder
When it comes to multifunctionality, the plasma cutting system of the MG series from MicroStep is the pioneer in the industry. The all-rounder was designed to carry out a maximum of processing on sheet metal, pipes, profiles and even domes – and to do so with the highest quality and fully automatically combined: this includes cutting precise holes and contours with plasma and oxyfuel, weld edge preparation as well as drilling, countersinking, tapping, marking, punching or scanning.
Medium-sized companies as well as renowned corporations such as BOSCH, Doppelmayr, Lürssen or ThyssenKrupp rely on the precision, flexibility and performance of the multifunctional CNC cutting solution.
"We are sure that with this new acquisition we are making a leap forward in terms of efficient production. The bevel cutting is of such high quality that we shouldn't have any quality loss with the automated robot welding. We are primarily concerned with the further automation of our production," says Walter Eberle from the Production Planning team at Doppelmayr Seilbahnen GmbH.

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.
