BEAM BUG III: Beam Cutter

Reduces Material Handling, Cut Beams, Channels and Angles in Place

The BEAM BUG III is a lightweight, easy-to-carry, portable steel-cutting machine that cuts beams, channels, and angles from one rail setting. It produces smooth, square, accurate cuts and virtually eliminates grinding and touch-up. Now, you can take the machine to work and greatly reduce material handling costs.

Our angle-cutting machine reduces material handling costs by allowing you to cut beams, channels, and angles in place. This means less time moving materials to and from the cutting area, increasing efficiency and productivity. Trust Bug-O Systems for all your welding needs!

Features Of Our Beam Cutter:

  • Lightweight and portable
  • Push button clutch locks the machine onto the beam rail
  • Infinitely variable speed control
  • Single speed control sets both vertical and horizontal travel speed
  • Double-bearing wheels provide rigidity and accuracy
  • Made in USA

How Does Our Cutting System Work?

Position the BEAM BUG III onto the workpiece by placing the beam rail on top of the beam. This rail is held in position by powerful permanent magnets and beam clamps. The beam rails enable miter cuts on webs and, when the work can be positioned, on the flanges.

The carriage has a push-button clutch and locks onto the beam rail. It is easily removed for handling and/or storage. A single speed control sets both vertical and horizontal travel speeds.

A toggle switch selects movement in either direction. Positive rack and pinion drives with infinitely variable speed control ensure precise cutting speeds. Limit switches prevent vertical (flange rail) overrun. 

Gases are controlled by a quick-acting manifold, which eliminates repetitive torch adjustment. Double-bearing wheels provide rigidity and accuracy. The torch holder and torch swivel to the correct position, and positioning pins set bevel angles. 

The BEAM BUG III has a 10″ (254 mm) two-hose machine torch and three cutting tips. (Specify fuel gas and voltage when ordering.)

  • ARR-9236 – Swivel Mounted Beam Rail (same as ARR-9214), but with cuts 2″-18″ (50-450 mm) flanges and 66″ (1675 mm) webs.
  • ARR-9120 – Swivel Mounted Beam Rail (same as ARR-9214), with cuts 2″-18″ (50-450 mm) flanges and 120″ (3050 mm) webs.
  • ARR-9045 – Adjustable Beam Rail with two squaring bars and adjustable locks for miter cuts on webs and flanges 36″ (915 mm) of travel.
  • ARR-9046 – Adjustable Beam Rail with two squaring bars and adjustable locks for miter cuts on webs and flanges 72″ (1830 mm) of travel.
