Since 1992, Ocean Machinery has been selling robust and very affordable CNC solutions to structural Steel Fabricators around the world.

The NEW Ocean Liberator is the most affordable beam coping machine in the world, and is the result of a strong ongoing collaboration with Peddinghaus, the number one manufacturer of structural steel fabricating machinery.


Ocean Liberator - CNC Steel Beam Coper






The Ocean Liberator will cut the copes in your steel beams faster than your layout man can even layout the copes - Check out our CNC Beam Coping Time Study Videos


In the same way that the Ocean Avenger CNC Beam Line and the Ocean Clipper CNC Angle Line  brought affordable automation of beams and angles to the small-to-medium fabricator, the Ocean Liberator similarly brings automated beam coping into shops that otherwise could never have considered it.

What is the Ocean Liberator CNC Beam Coping Machine?

The Ocean Liberator is an amazingly economical 5-axis CNC robotic oxy-fuel cutting beam coper that will enable you to make any type of cut on beams, channels, angels, plates, and rectangular tubes.

Literally anything that you can draw, can be cut by this superbly versatile profile cutting machine. Not only does it cope, but it cuts to length too!

Coping Flange of Beam

This single torch CNC beam coper removes the need for manually laying out your copes, and ensures that copes are done neatly and accurately, direct from your CNC detail drawings.

The Ocean Liberator is made with pride in the USA by Peddinghaus exclusively for Ocean Machinery.

The Liberator can be programmed directly at the machine using its own intuitive graphical programming software, or it can be programmed directly from you steel detailers CAD details.

Ocean Liberator CNC Beam Coper Features

The summary below gives a quick insight into the machine design and performance. For more details, follow the navigation at the left.

Machine Design

The Ocean Liberator features a rigid heavy duty frame welded frame that easily mates to a variety of automatic or manual in-feed and out-feed conveyors (typical configuration uses 45ft of in-feed and 45ft of out-feed conveyor).

This solid frame provides the rigid platform from which the fully articulated 5-axis torch is driven, ensuring accurate and repeatable copes and cuts in a variety of profiles.

The torch uses a 5-axis fully articulated cutting torch, which allows it to cut from any angle on any surface, easily allowing bevel cuts in both the web and the flanges, something that more expensive multi-head machines are unable to do.

The beam coper is equipped with a heavy-duty automatic igniter for simple automatic ignition.

A handheld remote pendant allows fine-tuning of the cutting gap and travel speed, and provides the operator freedom of movement during cutting.

Beam Coping Performance

This supremely versatile machine allows coping and cutting of

  • Beams

  • Channel

  • Angle

  • Plate

  • Tube

The Liberator cuts steel fast, cutting at speeds of up to 30 inches per minute depending on material thickness and hardness, type of gas, flame adjustments, and other factors, and has a fast positioning speed of up to 400 inches per minute.


Programming your Beam Coper

The simple-to-program Peddimat software is pre-installed on the Ocean Liberator, and can be installed on the client desktops and laptops at no extra charge per seat. Peddimat is simple to learn and typical blue collar operators learn to program standard copes within the first hour of training.

The Peddimat software is found on all of Ocean Machinery's CNC products, and is the same software found on all of Peddinghaus large CNC structural fabricating machines.  

Moreover, if you are detailing in one of the several 3-D framework CAD detailing programs on the market such as SDS/2, X-Steel, Tekla Structures, StruCAD, ProSteel 3D and others, then the operator has to merely import the part program and push the cycle start button. The software is seamlessly compatible with most DSTV (*.NC1) format  for easy downloading direct to the machine.
