The NEW Ocean Liberator is the most affordable beam coping machine in the world, and is the result of a strong and productive collaboration with Peddinghaus, the number one manufacturer of structural steel fabricating machinery.
The Ocean Liberator will cut the copes in your steel beams faster than your layout man can even layout the copes. – Check out our CNC Beam Coping Time Study Videos.
In the same way that the Ocean Avenger CNC Beam Drill Line and the Ocean Clipper CNC Angle Line brought affordable automation of beams and angles to the small-to-medium fabricator, the Ocean Liberator similarly brings automated beam coping into shops that otherwise could never have considered it.
The Ocean Liberator is an amazingly economical 5-axis CNC robotic oxy-fuel cutting beam coper that will enable you to make any type of cut on beams, channels, angels, plates, and rectangular tubes.
Literally anything that you can draw, can be cut by this superbly versatile profile cutting machine. Not only does it cope, but it cuts to length too!
This single torch CNC beam coper removes the need for manually laying out your copes, and ensures that copes are done neatly and accurately, direct from your CNC detail drawings.
The Ocean Liberator features a rigid heavy duty frame welded frame that easily mates to a variety of automatic or manual in-feed and out-feed conveyors (typical configuration uses 45ft of in-feed and 45ft of out-feed conveyor).
This solid frame provides the rigid platform from which the articulated 5-axis torch is driven, ensuring accurate and repeatable copes and cuts in a variety of profiles.
The Liberator uses a 5-axis fully articulated cutting torch, which allows it to cut from any angle on any surface, easily allowing bevel cuts in both the web and the flanges, something that more expensive multi-head machines are unable to do.
The beam coper is equipped with a heavy-duty automatic igniter for simple automatic ignition.
A handheld remote pendant allows fine-tuning of the cutting gap and travel speed, and provides the operator freedom of movement during cutting.
This supremely versatile machine allows coping and cutting of beams, channel, angle, plate, tube.
The Liberator cuts steel at speeds of up to 30 inches per minute depending on material thickness and hardness, type of gas, flame adjustments, and other factors, and has a fast positioning speed of up to 400 inches per minute.
Simple and easy to operate.
No computer experience required.
