SK50 / CAT50 carbide drilling and heavy milling
The Voortman V325 is the only machine in its range equipped with a heavy SK50 / CAT50 drilling head. With its massive torque of 610 Nm, the drilling head allows you to effortlessly carbide drill 70 mm holes in plates with a thickness up to 100 mm. Especially with heavy base plates, drilling saves time compared to milling. Adding even more strength and versatility to the drill head, it is able to mill slot and square holes and is equipped with a 20-fold automatic tool changer to provide a robust array of common processes such as drilling, thread tapping, counter sinking and counter boring. Through close cooperation with a team of specialists while developing the spindle, Voortman achieved two main goals in the V325 – performance and reliability in drilling and milling.
Instant Cut Technology
Voortman’s Instant Cut Technology was developed to reduce cutting cycles. This technique ensures optimized movement each time the plate is handled, allowing production capabilities to double. Especially when production consists of small products with holes, 100% increased production rate is easily attainable with the powerful motion control and speed of the V325. Because Instant Cut Technology is built into Voortman’s own Vacam control software, it remains productive by letting the software create the optimal production mix between speed and quality.
Easy remounting with 3D collision
The V325 comes equipped with an unique magnetic collision system in order to minimize downtime. When the torch collides with an object such as a cut-out product on the table, the machine will be up and running in no time with simple manual handling to remount the torch. This unique system is equipped on both the plasma and oxy torch for a consistent benefit for any cutting situation.
Plasma 3D bevel
Voortman’s sophisticated and accurate plasma 3D bevel unit ensures that man hours and operation costs in the workshop are greatly reduced. The V325 is able to process a variety of high quality bevel cuts and weld preparations (A, V, X, Y and K). Processed parts are immediately ready for assembly and welding without further manual operations, eliminating human handling and errors.
Advanced nesting software
The advanced nesting engine SigmaNEST comes equipped with all Voortman plate cutting machines for increased material optimization and cutting efficiency. Advanced nesting algorithms ensure improved part yield and minimal scrap while optimizing cutting cycle times. Voortman includes SigmaNEST in all steel processing machines because, as all efficient fabrication and manufacturing shops know, an excellent nesting program is as important as the machine itself.
