The ProfileCut series
Customized for efficient
profile and beam processing
The ProfileCut series | All-rounder for beams
The ProfileCut series is dedicated for production of steel structures. It provides efficient and cost-effective cutting and marking of commonly used types of beams and profiles.
Besides optional pipe and plate cutting areas, the machine has a dedicated area for cutting of beams such as I, H, U or L. To enable precise processing of beams in the required spots, ProfileCut machines are equipped with a laser scanner that measures the exact shape of the beam in the place of cutting. That allows the control system to adjust the movement of the tool according to the true shape of the particular beam.
In addition, ProfileCut machines offer automation possibilities with automatic loading, feeding, sorting and unloading of beams via feeding and conveyor systems and a dedicated production management software.
An extension of the machine with a dome cutting area for processing of dished ends turns the ProfileCut into a true allrounder in processing of 3D materials.
These customers rely on MicroStep and benefit from the ProfileCut
"The machine has helped us in mainly two aspects. On the one hand, by shortening production times and, on the other hand, by improving the quality of our heaters. Thanks to the integration of the ProfileCut, we no longer have to outsource the cutting of the parts. This gives us both speed as well as self-sufficiency."

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).
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.
