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, Praxairs new PRS900 system provides fabricators with the ability to do much more with much less," said Craig Camp, Praxair cutting machine manager. "The systems 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 systems web-based operator interface, provide users with new flexibility."

Praxair will also be supporting FABTECH exhibitors by providing the shows 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.

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
