Voortman V600 | Beam drilling

Features | Specifications | Photos | Quotation

This CNC controlled drilling system has one horizontal drilling unit and is extremely suitable for structural steel fabricators with a limited floor space. The V600 is specially designed for profile drilling, thread tapping, counter sinking and center point marking. It consists of a drilling table and a drilling cabin, which moves horizontally along the table. Synchronous driven servomotors in combination with ball screw spindles provide fast and accurate drilling at all times.



Carbide drilling   Front side measuring by laser

Using synchronized servo drives with ball screws for each movement as well as a large 30 kW servo drive for the drilling spindle results in extreme acceleration. Maximum speed is reached in just a fraction of time, and maximum torque in the full range from 1 to 2.500 rpm is perfect for carbide drilling.


The front side of the product is measured by laser to assure high accuracy. In automatic mode, multiple products on the table are measured and the exact position is stored in the program. In this way, a remote control is not necessary.

Hydraulic vertical clamp   Tool length measuring by laser

The hydraulic clamp ensures stability of the product during drilling. The chance of shifting is therefore reduced to none and manual clamping of the product by an operator is no longer necessary.


To be able to move the drilling unit to the material in full speed, the length of every new tool is measured by laser when a new tool is placed into the tool changer. This eliminates touch sensing.

Tool changer

An automatic tool changer with 5 tools is included with the machine; the tool changer ensures higher production as the machine does not have to wait for the operator to change the tool.

Air compressor and hydraulic unit   Power rail

An air compressor and hydraulic unit are installed inside the drilling cabin. The air compressor supplies the air for cooling and tool changing, and the hydraulic unit operates the vertical hydraulic clamp.


The main electric cable and the network cable are only connected to the table of the V600. Voortman uses a power rail for the power connection to the cabin, which is less sensitive and requires less maintenance then a cable tray. The DSTV data for automatic programming is being transferred wireless, or by USB stick, if preferred.

Cabin suspended from table   High quality components

By using heavy duty bearings the drilling cabin is hanging completely free from the floor, so it is not disturbed by any chips lying on the floor.


Only high quality components from the most renowned brands are used, these parts result in lower maintenance cost, less breakdowns and a worldwide availability of spare parts.

Safety bumpers   Table length

A foam safety bumper is installed on the front and back of the cabin. In case of contact the machine is switched off automatically.


The table of the V600 drilling system is available in variable lengths, so it can be supplied according to customer requirements. Because the machine is moving alongside the products, the footprint of the machine is reduced by 50%.
