Easy remounting with 3D collision
When a collision occurs, mounting the torch back always took some time. Therefore, the Voortman plasma and oxy-fuel unit uses a magnet holder where the torch can easily be remounted back in the holder to minimize downtime of the machine after a collision.
Easy restarting in case of arc loss
When the arc is lost or the cut is interrupted, the torch can be easily moved back to the point of failure without the flame burning. From the point of failure the torch can ignite and continue the cut. Another possibility is to move the torch from the contour, start in the waste material, move towards the contour automatically and continue the cutting process.
Flexible plate measurement
Easy plate measurement with more complex scrap shapes. Based on the shape of the plate and the cut-outs an operator can choose with which corner he wants to define the zero position of the plate. The angle of how the plate is lying on the table can also be automatically calculated by VACAM operating software by manually measuring specific points of the side of the plate.
Large laser cross
The outer dimensions of the plate are measured with a laser. Because Voortman uses a Large Laser Cross, this laser is easy visible for the operator, even at back of the table.
Panel moves with bridge
Because the panel moves together with the bridge the operator can follow the process up close while operating the machine. Changes in oxy-fuel parameters (e.g. speed and height) during cutting based on changes in the plate temperature can be done easily without walking back and forth between the operating panel and the bridge. Because Voortman also includes VACAM Office all preparation for the next nesting can be done at the office.
The cable tray can be mounted on floor level or above the machine on both sides of the machine. By positioning the cables above the machine, precious floor space is saved. Another advantage of putting the cable tray high is to prevent splatter from damaging the cables. The height of the cable tray above the floor can be chosen upon customer demands.
The control panel can be mounted on both sides of the machine depending on the production flow and layout of your workshop. The Voortman V304 can be equipped with water tables, downdraft tables and automatic slag removal tables. Table widths, table lengths and the number of tables can be fully customized to customer preferences. Multiple gantries on one rail are also possible. Based on the infrastructure and the output the Voortman V304 can be changed to perfectly synergize with your production.
Various torch combinations can be made depending on the type of work processed. Combinations of oxy-fuel units, 3D plasma beveling units, inkjet marking units or straight plasma units can be made depending on what has to be cut and marked on a yearly basis. Required flexibility, cutting costs, thicknesses and materials processed all form a factor in the right decision. Discuss with our sales department what the best solution could be for your workshop.
