The steel construction sector demands radical changes in the processes used to cut H, C and IPE type tubes and profiles and to prepare them for successive fabrication steps. There is an increased demand to construct ultra-modern structures. The ever-increasing complexity of forms and requirement of esthetically appealing appearances present a growing fabrication challenge. This modern trend is also seen in residential buildings. Additional aspects of the modern trend are eco-sustainability and the need to complete the projects in shorter time frames to reduce costs.
