Compact, Full-Featured Assembler

Your path to a safer, cleaner and more productive fab shop

Optimized for assembly, the SBA Compact consists of 1 robot for assembly, tack and finish welding. In-out feed of beams requires a crane, and the machine fits within a length of just 26 meters.

Easy integration

This machine can become a part of your existing workflow with ease.

Available in an upgradable Compact+ model as well for:

  • One additional robot for weld out (multi layers up to a15)
  • Automated infeed and inloading devices reduce the side-time handling of beams substantially

Investment & Reward

With a Zeman machine you can be sure your investment will pay off quickly! 

  • It’s a dangerous job, no doubt. Improving worker safety leads to less downtime due to injuries on the job
  • Automation increases your ability to reliably calculate job completion time and produce beams faster.
  • The machines don’t get tired. Even the best welder can get sloppy at the end of a long day. Avoid mistakes that lead to job delays and injuries, our machines will always perform reliably no matter how long the day is.
  • Produce more than just steel beams, produce a profit!
