Advanced Scribing – Sub parts

You can include additional lines to pinpoint hole locations. For instance, when attaching a plate with holes onto the primary component by welding, lines will be marked on the primary part, oriented perpendicularly to the holes on the secondary part. When the scribing feature for secondary parts is activated and used, it will create alignment lines on the secondary part to ensure accurate hole positioning and alignment with other primary or secondary components.

In addition to utilizing Advanced Scribing for primary components, Advanced Scribing for secondary parts provides the capability to scribe secondary, tertiary, and other related components. This empowers you to achieve enhanced precision and increased fabrication speed, whether you’re working on straightforward or intricate assemblies. Make the most of Advanced Scribing to elevate the quality and efficiency of your fabrication processes.

Reduce visible scribing lines

You can reduce the number of visible scribing lines on steel beams and plates by configuring the scribing data to be placed beneath the welded surface during the engineering phase. This adjustment can be configured within the Advanced Scribing solution.

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 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.

Minimal production time by using scribing

Punch and shear machines, as well as drill and saw machines, offer seamless capability to create precise pop-marks on steel beams or plates using either the drilling tip or punch. Additionally, plate processing machines equipped with a cutting and drilling tool effortlessly apply these pop-marks. This streamlined approach results in a significant boost in production output. Moreover, machine downtime is minimized as there’s no need for tool changes. All scribing operations are fully automated, based on DSTV files or .nc1 files, further reducing the potential for costly errors.

ConstruSteel generates DSTV+ files (standardized .nc1 file format) and PNI files specifically tailored for Ficep machines, facilitating the control of steel fabrication equipment. This means that the scribing data generated by Advanced Scribing can be seamlessly transmitted to a wide range of steel fabrication machines, including Voortman, Ficep, Kaltenbach, Peddinghaus, Behringer, and Daito, among others. This interoperability ensures efficient and precise integration across various fabrication setups, empowering your workflow with advanced technology and versatility.
