Drilling/tapping/sinking

 

Equipped with the largest and heaviest drilling spindle in the field, versatility is something that comes standard in the Voortman V325. The V325 increases output volume with its capability for carbide drilling large holes (70mm). When there’s a need for slot holes or square holes, the drill head can meet the output challenge, milling at the highest quality with 610 Nm torque. A 20-fold automatic tool changer provides a wide range of processes, and when combined with tool length measurement capabilities the V325 achieves a high level of automation without human interference. Also working towards the goal of higher output, the drilling unit is mounted on double linear guides with servo-driven ball screws for fast and precise drilling with extremely high feed rates. Internally cooled drills with a mix of oil and air ensure a long lifetime and eliminate the need for cleaning after drilling.

Plasma cutting

 

For plate cutting up to 100 mm / 4” Voortman offers various plasma cutting systems from Hypertherm and Kjellberg with maximum cutting currents from 130 up to 400 amps. With Voortman’s own Vacam software all of the parameters like kerf offset, height control, pierce time delay and gas flow are automatically controlled, making a quality plasma cut more a configured science than operator knowledge. The plasma torch is equipped with all the latest innovations such as fast Voortman Height Control, Truevolt technology and Instant Cut Technology. All of these innovations, each with their individual functions, help the V325 achieve the highest cutting quality, extend consumable lifetime and ensure the fastest cutting cycle. High definition plasma offers similar quality results as the cuts made by laser in terms of angularity and dross.

Oxy fuel cutting

 

An easy switch between plasma and oxy-fuel torches covers a wide range of thicknesses with both straight and bevel cut processing. Because the two torch types share the same holder, they share the same innovation. This allows operators to process a variety of high quality bevel cuts and weld preparations (A, V, X, Y and K) for producing parts that are ready immediately without further manual operations. In addition to the revolutionary oxy-fuel torch with its built-in features, the automatic height control and collision protecting magnetic holder are responsible for a faster cutting cycle with minimum downtime.
