The CPCut & PipeCut series
Pipe & profile processing in all dimensions
The CPCut & PipeCut series | Pipe and profile specialist
The CPCut & PipeCut series offers a wide range of pipe and profile cutting possibilities for various industrial applications in offshore, lifting and agricultural equipment, pipelines, power plant and steel constructions or shipbuilding.
The modular design of the machine allows to meet unique pipe fabrication needs and thus become a valid part of your production facility.
CPCut & PipeCut machines enable a wide range of pipe-based applications including trimming, cutting of various openings for multiple pipe and profile intersections or connections, weld edge preparation as well as marking.
Optionally, the PipeCut can also be supplied as a fully automated workplace with automatic loading, feeding and unloading of pipes and profiles – CPCut and PipeCut can also be fitted with an additional cutting area for smaller domes.

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.
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.
