Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0010760A1] Processing equipment (13) for cutting or shaping all faces of elongate I-section beams (10), girders, tubes or the like, has a plurality of aligned but spaced apart co-axial holding stations (14) on either side of a central processing station (16). Each holding station has a pair of tapered rollers which are both movable towards and away from one another to accommodate I-beams (10) or other elongate bodies (10) of different cross sections. Each holding station (14) can rotate the beam (10) about the longitudinal axis thereof and can also feed the beam (10) through a brush seal (15) into an enclosed water-jet cutting apparatus (16). After processing within the cutting apparatus (16), the support units (14) drive the beam (10) out to a plurality of output support units (17) at the output end (18) of the processing equipment (13). On completion of operations on the beam (10), it can be discharged through the open jaws of the holding stations (14) onto a plurality of output rails (19) for removal.
