Technology and Innovation
Koenig prides itself on maintaining its position as a leader in the early adoption of new and innovative technological advances. With a state-of-the-art production facility and fully integrated computerized fabrication capability, Koenig Iron Works delivers projects on time and on budget.
The utilization of Tekla detailing software to create 3D models allows us the flexibility and accuracy to target and maximize every aspect of the project at hand, and to detect problems and design flaws long before they reach the construction phase. Our professional and experienced staff has the ability to work with contractors and architects to coordinate the layout and planning of all mechanical, structural, and architectural details. This sophisticated, high performance software allows Koenig’s staff of professionals to streamline and accelerate the workload directly into our computerized fabrication equipment, saving time and allowing us to move quickly to the next phase.
Plasma Cutting in CNC Fabrication
In CNC (computer numerical controlled) cutting the plasma table is used to cut steel of different thicknesses without producing metal chips. By ejecting an inert gas from a nozzle while producing an electrical arc through the gas to the surface of the metal a portion of the ejected gas is turned into plasma. The plasma is hot enough to melt the metal and the force of the gas is sufficiently great to blow the molten metal away from the cut. This CNC technology provides greater flexibility to cut diverse shapes “on demand” based on instructions downloaded directly in the machine’s controls. The result is a precision cut which cannot be duplicated in any other way.
A recently installed Peddinghaus Advantage drill line provides accurate and efficient fabrication with unmatched production capacity. Koenig has also completed a significant technological upgrade with the additional purchase and installation of a higher capacity Peddinghaus Angle Master. When coupled with our plasma table, this cutting-edge equipment provides us with the most advanced trio of CNC fabrication equipment on the market. Our enhanced production speed and larger fabrication capacity translates to the timely and efficient service that our clients have come to expect for over a century.
