ConXtech(TM) Introduces New Long-Span Structural Steel Framing System for Commercial and Industrial Applications.Innovative ConXL[TM] System Allows for Spans of Up to 65 Feet
HAYWARD, Calif. -- ConXtech[TM] Space Frame Systems announces the introduction of a new long-span steel framing system, ConXL[TM], for commercial and industrial applications. The system - which uses the same "lower and lock" principle of the company's signature ConX[TM] space frame system primarily used for residential construction - includes larger structural steel members and offers spans or bay spacing of up to 65 feet. The ConXL system makes this unique architecturally flexible building system now available for commercial applications like parking structures, hospitals and data centers, as well as industrial installations such as pipeline, pipe rack Noun 1. pipe rack - a rack for holding a smoker's pipes
rack - framework for holding objects and refinery structures for the oil and gas industry.
ConXL's market debut coincides with an increased demand for office, healthcare and data center facilities in California. ConXtech founder Bob Simmons adds, "We saw a need to diversify diversify
To acquire a variety of assets that do not tend to change in value at the same time. To diversify a securities portfolio is to purchase different types of securities in different companies in unrelated industries. our market mix to better handle cyclical cyclical
Of or relating to a variable, such as housing starts, car sales, or the price of a certain stock, that is subject to regular or irregular up-and-down movements. downturns in residential building activity. Scaling up from ConX to ConXL has created new opportunities and opens several growing market segments to us."
Similar to the ConX system, ConXL allows for faster construction and is safer than conventional steel framing because it is precision manufactured, robotically welded and inspected in a quality-controlled factory environment.
Raymond Kitasoe, ConXtech's vice president of engineering, says, "This process vastly reduces the requirement for field welding welding, process for joining separate pieces of metal in a continuous metallic bond. Cold-pressure welding is accomplished by the application of high pressure at room temperature; forge welding (forging) is done by means of hammering, with the addition of heat. and subsequent inspections in what can be challenging field environments."

Additionally, the ConXL SMF joint meets special detailing requirements for high seismic areas, OSHPD OSHPD Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (California Health and Human Services Agency) (California's Office of Statewide Planning & Development) testing requirements and U.S. Department of Defense anti-terrorism standards.
The company's ConX and ConXL structures are highly sustainable. Technologies the company developed have enabled vast gains in efficiency when compared to conventional steel fabrication fabrication (fab´rikā´shn),

ConXtech provides collaborative design integration, detailing, manufacturing and assembly of four- to 12-story residential and two- to 20-story commercial structures, as well as an array of efficient steel structures for industrial applications.
About ConXtech Inc.
ConXtech Inc. is a privately held Delaware Corporation A Delaware corporation is a corporation chartered in the U.S. state of Delaware. Delaware is well known as a corporate haven, and thus, over 50% of US publicly-traded corporations and 58% of the Fortune 500 companies are incorporated in the state. based in Hayward, Calif. ConXtech designs and manufactures revolutionary structural steel building components for the high-density residential, commercial residential, office, parking, hospital, educational and industrial structure markets. ConXtech's systemized approach utilizes three innovative structural connections Structural connections
Methods of joining the individual members of a structure to form a complete assembly. The connections furnish supporting reactions and transfer loads from one member to another. which are mass-customized to deliver a precise structural "chassis" to which other systemized building components can be added.
Utilizing technology, design tools (software), robotics robotics, science and technology of general purpose, programmable machine systems. Contrary to the popular fiction image of robots as ambulatory machines of human appearance capable of performing almost any task, most robotic systems are anchored to fixed positions and other state-of-the-art component manufacturing processes, these highly configurable components drastically streamline the design, fabrication and on-site construction processes and reduce time, labor and overall project costs when compared to conventional structures. ConXtech offers a significant systemic change to the building process enabling owners and developers to safely build faster, more cost effectively and with better quality.
