Amtek APC 1200
APC1200 Control Input

The Amtek APC1200, (Beam Coping Machine) is a preprogrammable and operator manually programmable structural steel coping system. It cuts and bevels. There are two systems, Oxy Fuel only and Combination Oxy Fuel/Plasma (Each one can be purchased with upgraded options.)

Basic Oxy Fuel Unit

 The basic unit is a semi-automatic, oxy-fuel coping machine. The operator positions the workpiece, finetunes it, starts the cut and adjusts the torch height while cutting. (There is an automated option for a laser to auto probe and set the torch height.) The basic unit comes with powered conveyors where the operator manually measures and marks the X length on the feed stock prior to cutting. (There is also an optional automated measuring system via Laser measuring of the feed stock.) The interface allows the operator to input material type to be cut. The operator scrolls through a list of options via pictorial representations on the computer touch screen. The computer is programmed with all the AISC structural steel dimensions. A fully dimensioned cope drawing is displayed simplifying programing, saving time and minimizing operator input error. The operator can override and customize the input as needed, and it can be stored as a new program, if desired. The machine can also be pre-programmed from the office through DSTV exported drawings. There is a wireless remote control that the operator uses to start, stop and operate the equipment. This allows the Operator to freely walk around viewing from any angle needed to verify operations and maintain accuracy. The operator makes his mark on the material, moves the material into position, and hydraulically clamps the material to be cut into place. The operator lines the laser to the mark and begins the cycle. The torch ignites, pre-heating the material. The operator manually initiates the cutting process and finishes the cut as he maintains the proper torch height.

Upgraded Plasma/Oxy Fuel Unit

 Along with the basic unit that has some optional upgrade features, there is also the fully upgraded APC 1200. It has combination plasma and oxy-fuel cutting with both torches mounted on a pivoting head. They will flip one to the other interchangeably via computer control in a second without having to do anything manually. The machine is operated primarily with the Plasma to maximize efficiency. It is preprogrammed to automatically switch to the Oxy Fuel when the material thickness is beyond the cutting capacity of the Plasma. This upgraded unit comes standard with the laser probing for automatic height adjustment.

Longer Conveyors and Cross Transfer Rails are available options for both units.

X-axis measuring is an option for both. Except for the manual starting of the oxy-fuel torch this option and the laser probe turns the machine into being fully automated.

Both units can cut and bevel plate 40” wide and less.
