Advanced Scribing – Main parts

Advanced Scribing Main parts - ConstruSteelScribing / layout marking can be easily generated on both main parts and sub parts of assemblies (even super-assemblies or sub-assemblies) in the 3D BIM-model with Advanced Scribing. The software has a lot of useful functionalities like scribing full or partial contours and even pop-marks to indicate the position of the parts that have to be welded on to the scribed main part.

Steel fabrication companies describe this innovation as a NC marking lines optimizer. Additional information such as the item number and assembly number can be scribed.

Set up scribing for different steel profiles

With Advanced Scribing, you can set up the type of scribing for different steel profiles. It is possible to scribe all steel I-beams with a full contour while the position of all steel U-beams are indicated by using pop-marks. In this way you can optimize scribing or layout marking for your own efficient fabrication flow.

High quality production with Advanced Scribing

  • Generate layout marking on both main and sub parts
  • Easily select types of scribing
  • Flexible output selection
  • Never scribe more than needed
  • No manual scribing means less failure costs

In combination with CNC-controlled machines, Advanced Scribing is one of the most interesting Tekla plug-ins for the structural steel industry. This powerful and easy-to-use innovation has proven itself useful in many steel fabrication companies due to its unique and flexible features.

Advanced Scribing generates scribing lines, pop-marks and layout marking on selected or all steel profiles and plates of your 3D BIM model and ensures that CNC-machines are able to produce more efficiently.

What users say about Advanced Scribing?

” With Advanced Scribing by ConstruSteel we have saved a production time of 30 minutes per tonne! Amazing. ”

” Advanced Scribing for Tekla is more flexible than other scribing solutions and minimizes failure costs. ”

” Higher quality and faster production for both simple and complex assemblies. ”

” ConstruSteel’s Advanced Scribing for Tekla is very user friendly. ”

” The solution is totally worth the money. It pays for itself. ”

” Advanced Scribing by ConstruSteel paid itself back after production of 700 tonnes. Now this solution is making money every tonne. “

Minimal production time by using scribing

Punch and shear machines or drill and saw machines are able to easily place a pop-mark on a steel beam or steel plate, using the drilling tip or punch. Also plate processing machines with a cut and drill tool can easily place these pop-marks. The production output will increase significantly. Also, the downtime of the machine is reduced to a minimum because changing tools is not necessary. All scribing is done fully automatic (DSTV-files / .nc1 files), so failure costs are also reduced to a minimum.

ConstruSteel generates DSTV+ (standardized .nc1 file) and PNI (for Ficep machines) file formats for controlling steel fabrication machines. In that way, the scribing data generated with Advanced Scribing can be send to all steel fabrication machines (for example Voortman, Ficep, Kaltenbach, Peddinghaus, Behringer or Daito).
