The robotic tube cutting system developed by SMT Systemtechnik GmbH passed its first practical test as the computer controlled machining system was delivered midyear to the Polish shipyard Energomontaz Polnoc Gdynia (EPG). Specializing in ship repair and ship conversion, EPG shipyard in Gdynia has begun to expand its production profile to offshore and special steel products. On the robotic tube cutting system by SMT, pipes are mainly intended for the construction of offshore wind turbines to be processed. "We have been able to push on with the job for the EPG throw the door to the growing offshore market," commented Roland Rüb, sales managers and project developers of SMT Systemtechnik GmbH.

The highly flexible industrial robot systems can process steel pipes up to 50 tons and up to 14 meters long. The tube diameter varies between 100-1,200 mm.

The SMT-developers designed the robotic tube cutting system according to the requirements of EPG shipyard. Thus, the pipes are clamped into the machine and may not be reclamped in the whole course of the machining process. Roland Rübe described one of the technical innovations:"It can be edited for example, both headboards, without changing the position of the tube."
