Automatic CNC 4-sides scribing lines for sections
The Lexington CNC layout system for structural steel members addresses the most labor-intensive process in structural steel fabrication. The need for a layout man to interpret a drawing, using a measuring tape and square to manually mark locations for detail members to be fit on the main member is eliminated.
INDEPENDENT SCRIBING HEADS
The Lexington features four totally independent marking heads each with their own sub-axis travel of 350 mm (13-3/4”) on both the vertical and horizontal heads so it is possible to mark up to four surfaces simultaneously even when the marking requirements are offset between the surfaces.
PATENTED SCRIBING TOOL
Each of the four marking heads are equipped with Ficep patented scribing tools, using a 4-sided carbide insert that generates a high speed milling function to mark or scribe the surfaces. The tool is designed to float to maintain a consistent depth of penetration for marking. The mark penetration of the tool is designed to also be adjustable so that deeper penetrations could be achieved for part marking of material that was subsequently galvanized or painted.
AUTOMATIC CAD DATA IMPORT
FICEP’s industry leading software is able to extract all the intersecting locations of the different structural steel elements from the 3-D model of the structure. In addition to these locations, an orientation mark, the part number of the element to be fit and the welding codes are also generated on all four surfaces by the Lexington.
