Fast, efficient and cost-saving
MasterCut Compact | The plasma cutting system
One of the most demanded cutting solutions from MicroStep is the MasterCut Compact. The plasma cutting system has been developed as a compact CNC machine and has been offered as a complete package with filter system and power source in different formats. Now MicroStep presents the most powerful version of the MasterCut Compact ever. The original still stands for cost-effective and efficient plasma cuts like no other. The technology range has been raised to a new level with the latest generation. For 3D processing of flat material, the MasterCut Compact can be extended with a MasterCut rotator for bevel cutting, for example for efficient weld seam preparation up to 47°. In addition, the plasma cutting system can be equipped with a technology for oxyfuel cutting to enable economical cuts even with higher material thicknesses.
"We now cut the majority of our material, the construction steel, completely ourselves - that is really a dream come true. The cutting system matches exactly our expectations, we are completely satisfied," says Andreas Neuhardt, Managing Director of Neuhardt Montageservice GmbH.
"The system delivers excellent quality and a precise cut, it's a real laser replacement for me. We are very content."

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.
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.
MasterCut Compact iMSNC® machine control
The intelligent solution for multi-technology work
The system’s hardware consists of a 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.
