Plasma cutting is usually needed for beveling the pipe ends for welding needs and for cutting the branch holes.
Inputting the correct burn tracks for the plasma machine is not the easiest task, if the operator needs to input the data based on a isometric spool drawing. Offline programming is the most common alternative, but it requires skilled engineer resources, which are quite costly.
PipeCloud however creates the CAM programs automatically based on the geometry of the spool imported with the pcf file.
