3D pipe profile cutting technology with CAD/CAM-controlled CNC equipment
Everything from single units to complete pipe logistics from a single source
Our thermal 3D pipe profile cutting machines are available in the MO Compact, Watts, MO Classic, MO Heavy-Duty and MO Robo series. The machines of the MO Compact, Watts, MO Classic, MO Heavy-Duty series intended essentially for round pipes operate with macro-controlled software. This means that the machines can be quickly programmed online, offline or via CAD/CAM modules for the profiles to be cut with the aid of already available cutting macros.
Mueller Opladen is well known for it's high-quality and reliable stationary machines for CNC pipe profiling, with over 1700 machines sold over the years the company is continuously developing and innovating to implement the latest technology.
See the below overview with different machine series for 3D pipe profiling and the diameter range for a quick link to the product pages.
The machines of the MO Robo series designed mainly for beams have a freely programmable software architecture that facilitates the autonomous generation of the cutting profiles offline with the use of CAD/CAM modules.

Plasma and oxy-fuel are available as cutting processes. The main differences between the various series can be seen from the table on the opposite page.
The CNC axes are as follows:
- Rotation of the workpiece inside the chuck system (Y-axis)
- Longitudinal movement of the cutting head along the workpiece axis (X-axis)
- Oscillatory movement of the cutting head (B-axis)
- Rotation of the cutting head (C-axis)
- Height adjustment of the cutting head by a measuring system in the event of surface deviations of the workpiece (Z-axis)
- Torch distance correction in relation to the cutting angle during the cutting process (W-axis)
- Transverse movement of the cutting head at 90° to the workpiece axis (V-axis)
