The ultimate and most complete plate processing machine

Drilling, milling and cutting

In a concise area

The Voortman V310 can fully automate carbide drilling, 3D bevel cutting and full contour milling. The machine maximizes productivity and uptime, with a dashboard providing valuable information on the progress of operations. VACAM Scheduling and VACAM Buffering allow you to run all processes unmanned.

Every complete product that comes from the Voortman V310 satisfies our three main objectives:

  • High quality with minimal rework.
  • High degree of automation and process intelligence.
  • Significant reduction of production costs and manual errors.


Efficiency at its best: Voortman's Hybrid Milling in action

With the Hybrid Milling functionality, VACAM knows exactly which process can best be used to save time and costs. This feature allows for creating contours with mill quality by cutting a part of the contour first, then mill away the remaining part, saving a significant amount of time and simplifying the process overall. No process knowledge or programming required; the machine makes these smart choices for you.


As pioneers in plate processing, we're taking automation to the next level with cutting-edge VACAM software and innovative technology. Unmanned running is made very accessible. The V310 allows for clustering jobs, buffering multiple plates, and activating Unmanned Mode to bypass manual interventions for longer periods. Pre-drill holes during night shifts, then effortlessly create edge-starts the next morning to supercharge your part cutting efficiency.
