AGT Robotics Sells 100th BeamMaster at the
2023 Fabtech Tradeshow in Chicago
[Chicago, Ohio] – AGT Robotics, a pioneering force in the field of robotic welding solutions, is thrilled to announce a significant milestone in its journey towards revolutionizing the steel beam fabrication industry. At the 2023 Fabtech Tradeshow held in Chicago last week, AGT Robotics proudly marked the sale of their 100th BeamMaster, the world’s first robotic welding solution for structural steel. This achievement underscores the BeamMaster’s position as the preferred choice for structural steel robotic welding.
The BeamMaster, has swiftly emerged as the go-to choice for fabricators seeking to enhance their steel beam production capabilities. This innovative solution to robotic welding has won extensive recognition for lowering the industry’s reliance on skilled labor and greatly enhancing cost effectiveness. Its seamless integration with the Cortex Structural software, combined with the recent release of the SnapCam, a lightning-fast robotic 3D vision camera, has further solidified its reputation.
What sets the BeamMaster apart is its auto-programming capability, made possible through the remarkable Cortex Structural software. Cortex serves as the brain behind the BeamMaster, automating processes with advanced algorithms that require minimal manual intervention from job planners. This hands-free, all-inclusive approach ensures a smooth and highly efficient workflow, enabling fabricators to meet increasing production demands effortlessly.
At the 2023 Fabtech Tradeshow, AGT Robotics commemorated the historic sale of the 100th BeamMaster to Prime Metal Building & Components, a leading Texan company in the Steel Building and Metal Building industry.
“We don’t settle for the status quo and we’re not afraid to try new things and push the envelope for our industry and ourselves. With this in mind, we seized the opportunity to be a trailblazer in our industry and began the process of integrating robotics into our operations by partnering with AGT Robotics.” Said Austin Brown, Owner & CEO at Prime Building. “In 2021, our first 2 BeamMasters were installed. It didn’t take long for us to see the advantages robotics brought to our structural steel production line. So only 2 years later, we purchased 2 additional BeamMasters, one of which happened to be the 100th BeamMaster sold!”

One of the main evolutions of the BeamMaster is the release of the SnapCam, a lightning-fast robotic 3D vision camera. SnapCam’s efficiency translates into maximized arc-on-time and higher deposit rates, boosting your productivity and revenue. Ultimately, it provides a higher throughput, making it an invaluable addition to the BeamMaster ecosystem.
“The sale of our 100th BeamMaster at the Fabtech Tradeshow in Chicago is a testament to the trust our customers have placed in AGT Robotics and our commitment to delivering innovative solutions that redefine industry standards,” said Éric Bélanger, president at AGT Robotics. The BeamMaster, with the addition of the SnapCam, has become the preferred solution for structural steel robotic welding. We are proud to have reached this milestone and are excited about the future of robotic welding in structural steel production.
BeamMaster’s Key Benefits:
