High level of automation
Automatic in- & outfeed
Push the button and start the complete process
After loading the DSTV or DSTV+ (completely nested) files into the processing list of our VACAM operating system and loading the (optional) cross-transports with raw material, the machine can be started with just one push on the button. After this, the operator doesn’t have to do anything to help the production process but unloading finished products from the outfeed cross-transports. This means that when the V704 layout marking machine is first in line, there is only an operator needed for loading the cross transport and selecting the correct production data. Besides this, there is even no operator needed when the V704 layout marking machine is placed right after the V630 beam drilling machine. Because the beam as well as the data will automatically be send to the Voortman V704.
Fully automatic profile transportation
Mechanical or double operated drag-dogs are used to transport the profiles onto the in-feed roller conveyor and of the out-feed roller conveyor. Detectors in the drag-dogs enable automatic transport of the profiles from the cross conveyors to the in-feed roller conveyor and into the machine, as programmed in the VACAM operating software. Selected products will then automatically be produced out of the trading lengths. After the process drag-dogs detect the profile and transport the finished product onto the out-feed cross-transports. The cross transports are long enough to carry multiple profiles, allowing the machine to operate on its own for a considerable time.
The cross transports are equipped with double polyamide strips to reduce the noise while transporting the profiles across the transports.
Even more capacity with Multi System Integration
The Voortman V704 beam marking machine as all other machines is delivered with the VACAM operating software, this means all machines talk in the same “language”. This advantage is used to integrate two or more machines, as seen in the lay-out below virtually one production line called Multi System Integration (MSI) is created. VACAM constantly keeps track of all the material and the machines know exactly which raw length or part is entering the machine without any intervention of the operator.
The lay-out as seen above with the Voortman V630 beam drilling machine and the Voortman V704 beam marking machine in a split configuration. This makes it possible to process beams simultaneously which doubles the processing speed since waiting time is set to a minimum.
