Attack of the Robots! Python Plasma, Tekla Structures, and Trimble Robotic Total Station

The best in computer aided design on the engineers' desks, robotic automation in the shop, and robotic layout in the field: Summit Steel Works continues to push the technological advantage to increase efficiencies on your worksite by leaps and bounds.


Precision and Power in the shop: Python robotic plasma

The PythonX Structural Fabrication System is the #1 all-in-one robotic plasma system in the world. The Python reads the NC1 files our engineers have produced on Tekla Structures, automatically processing beams, channels, angles, square and rectangular tube as well as plate in minutes on a single machine in one session. The PythonX can produce AISC approved Bolt Holes, Copes, Slots, Cutouts, Cut to length, Miter cut, Produce T-Beams, and scribe part/layout marks all in one place. What could take hours for a shop crew to do manually, now requires 5-10 minutes.

The PythonX can produce AISC approved Bolt Holes, COPES, Slots, Cutouts, Cut to length, Miter cut, Produce T-Beams, and scribe part/layout marks all in one place, eliminating countless hours of material handling in between operations. Also, because everything is in done on one machine, you save valuable shop space. The PythonX instantly automates every structural steel fabrication operation in your plant.  


The Engineers' Right Hand: Tekla Structures

[placeholder from Tekla] Models created with Tekla BIM software carry the accurate, reliable and detailed information needed for successful Building Information Modeling and construction execution. Welcome smoother workflow to your company with Tekla Structures and constructible models.

Tekla works with all materials and the most complex structures – you set the limits. Our customers have used Tekla Structures to model stadiums, offshore structures, plants and factories, residential buildings, bridges and skyscrapers.Tekla works with all materials and the most complex structures – you set the limits.

Precision in the field: Trimble Robotic Total Station

[placeholder from Trimle] The Trimble S5 Total Station is built upon proven Trimble technologies like SurePoint TM, MagDrive and our DR Plus EDM, helping you work more efficiently while maintaining the highest accuracy possible. Smooth and silent, Trimble MagDrive electro-magnetic technology means fewer moving parts, which reduces servicing requirements. Trimble SurePoint ensures accurate pointing and measurements by actively correcting for unwanted movements like wind, handling, and sinkage. The Trimble DR Plus EDM allows you to measure with fewer instrument set-ups and enhance your direct reflex performance.
