Step-by-Step Integration of Ocean Products

All Ocean products are designed to be fully-functional stand-alone machines that exhibit amazing productivity and versatility in their own right, and are designed to fit into very compact spaces since most of our customers are pressed for space.  However, they are also fully capable of being integrated into fully-functional systems for those customers who have the space to implement them.  This can be done at any time in a step-by-step approach as needs require and as funds become available.

We are finding more and more customers using the Avenger (and Avenger PLUS) drill line to not only drill and layout their beams, but also to measure the beam for cutting to length and coping.  We often see our machines in a system layout where the Avenger drills, lays out and measures, and the Terminator cuts to length.

But for those customers who have a significant percentage of their work that also needs to be coped, an Avenger or Avenger PLUS in tandem with the Liberator CNC Coper is even more versatile.  These customers use the drill line to place the location reference marks and then use the Liberator to not only cope the beams, but also to cut to length.

Just outside Fresno in Northern California, Steve Bradford of Bradford Steel started off with an Avenger and then subsequently added a Liberator to cope and cut to length.  He installed cross transfers to facilitate loading the Avenger and added idler rollers to the drill table, making it easier to feed the beams into the coper.  His future plans include additional cross transfers integrated with the outfeed of the Liberator to further speed up production, and the integration of an Ocean Blaster to further reduce costs and improve profitability.

The Ocean Blaster Cleans Up behind Python-X and Plasma Robots

The sales model of the Plasma Robots, such as the Python X, Ficep, Voortman, Daito and others, relies on the seductive promise of having one machine do the work of multiple machines, essentially eliminating the need for a saw, drill line and a coper. While in reality this never actually materializes (witness our Saw, Drill and Angle Line sales to existing Plasma Coping Robot users), and there is one further aspect that is never mentioned in the plasma robot sales pitch.

And that is just how sloppy the cuts and copes become within a very short time. This means that instead of eliminating labor, the user often has to hire additional labor to grind and clean the dross and slop from the cuts.

This has propelled the Ocean Blaster into the limelight as it is the most economical and efficient blast cleaning machine on the market and makes quick work of automatically cleaning the dross from these plasma cut parts. Just take a look at the before and after photos below.

The Ocean Blaster is a very compact, ruggedly built Shot Blaster featuring twin bucket elevators keeping the overall height so low that it can fit in any fab shop without the need for a pit. The hyper efficient turbines ensure that it has the lowest operating costs of all blasters on the market, and makes it the perfect machine for existing Python X and other Plasma Robot users to clean their steel.
