FABTECH - Praxair to Unveil New Robotic Cutting System at FABTECH 2015

FABTECH show in Chicago, November 9-12

DANBURY, Conn.--Praxair, Inc. (NYSE:PX) announced today that it will debut a first-of-its-kind Robotic Cutting System, the Praxair ProStar PRS900, at the FABTECH show in Chicago, November 9-12.


Praxair (Booth N14049) will demonstrate how this breakthrough metal-cutting technology can help customers lower equipment investment, cut labor expenses and minimize operating costs, all while improving product quality and productivity.

"Put simply, Praxair's new PRS900 system provides fabricators with the ability to do much more with much less," said Craig Camp, Praxair cutting machine manager. "The system's modular design allows operators to use one machine to cut structural tube and beam as well as 2-D plate and domes. Additionally, its true complex 3-D movement and ability to create, share and acquire evolving cutting parameters online, using the proprietary PRS900 cutting system's web-based operator interface, provide users with new flexibility."

Praxair will also be supporting FABTECH exhibitors by providing the show's nitrogen supply. Through the use of skidded, portable microbulk cylinders and its microbulk supply capabilities, Praxair will ensure all exhibitors have access to nitrogen at the pressures they need.
