Messer Cutting Systems To Showcase Element 400L Unitized at FABTECH

This year’s FABTECH show Messer Cutting Systems focus will be the new and innovative compact footprint Element 400L Unitized — the versatile Element 400 gantry cutting machines.

This US-manufactured cutting machine has acceleration and speeds that can support multiple laser or plasma heads with no loss of performance. These cutting machines have the flexibility to be equipped with many customized options such as plasma beveling, laser beveling, oxy-fuel cutting, and marking. Both machines at the show will be equipped with the plasma Bevel-S with a C-axis rotation of ± 540° for maximum efficiency. This beveller has scored well in the market for its excellent dynamic behavior.

Messer’s Applications Engineers will be providing live cutting demonstrations on both machines to showcase the latest in plasma bevel cutting and oxyfuel cutting techniques.

Another central focus to this machine: is the Global Connect Control and the OmniFab software suite. This software is taking the industry by storm due to advanced digital optimization for plate processing with a focus on Industry 4.0, and IoT with material handling solutions.

Creating solutions beyond machines

Improving productivity through the entire workflow of the thermal cutting process, we will focus on taking a holistic approach. There are many pieces to the manufacturing puzzle of the cutting process and one of the pieces is production software. Our IT professionals will be demonstrating the latest OmniFab production software. This is a tailor-made solution for order-related production to increase efficiency. It integrates Messer engineering technology into our customer’s workflow from the office to production on the factory floor, typically used in conjunction with material handling.

Aftersales and service capabilities

Messer Cutting Systems’ service teams will be on hand to discuss the service and maintenance packages offered with a purchase of a new machine. The service department will be providing live demonstrations of our remote Visual and Virtual Services. These are advanced tools that truly offer an “over-the-shoulder” support experience for the customer. For maintenance and errors, the benefit to end users is a much quicker return to production when an issue occurs and a higher “first-time fix rate”. Rapid resolutions using remote tools eliminate the lost time waiting for a Technician to arrive on site and the costs for that on-site visit.
