Smart loading with automatic infeed

AUTOMATIC BATCH LOADING
The V505-160T uses 3 m (10’) cross transports with integrated magnets and a tilting roller conveyor for automatic processing. Your operator can load a large batch of angles on the infeed cross transports and let the machine continuously process them with active buffer management. Liftable magnets separate the first angle from the batch and transports it into the machine with the tilting roller conveyor and gripper truck, while the remaining profiles are automatically moved closer to the infeed conveyors, ensuring the machine can process entire batches with little-to-no manual intervention.

FAST INFEED WITH GRIPPER TRUCK
The V505-160T is equipped with the fastest gripper truck available. The servo-driven gripper truck reaches max speeds of 110 m/min (260 ft/min) and a precision material sensor to provide full approach speed when processing angles. The standard 6 m (20’) conveyor can be extended up to 15 m (50’). The gripper truck doesn’t need to traverse all the way to the furthest end of the conveyor to save time in processing. It can be automatically positioned right at the end of profiles smaller than the full conveyor length to avoid unnecessary movement and long loading times. The entire system becomes fully automated with the cross-transports and integrated magnets, reducing issues caused by human error, while reducing labor costs significantly.

ACCURATE PROFILE POSITIONING
The V505-160T comes equipped with three solid external hold downs to guarantee angles are always perfectly positioned before punching, shearing and drilling. Plus, the two punching frames and slug stripper assembly make sure the material is always locked in place in the correct position when the punching tool retracts. This reduces punch wear while providing better quality results.

ROBUST MACHINE AND COMPONENTS
Only the best components are used in the V505-160T to increase the accuracy and durability of your angle processing machine. Rigid punching frames are mounted on the frame in a way that optimizes the punching process, even when running at top speeds. A heavy cylinder and optimized shearing blade improve accuracy and quality of produced parts.

Automation

Smart batch loading with automatic infeed

The V505-160T uses 3 m (10’) cross transports with integrated magnets and a tilting roller conveyor for automatic processing. Your operator can load a large batch of angles on the infeed cross transports and let the machine continuously process them with active buffer management. Liftable magnets separate the first angle from the batch and transports it into the machine with the tilting roller conveyor and gripper truck, while the remaining profiles are automatically nudged closer to the infeed conveyors, ensuring the machine can process entire batches with little-to-no manual intervention.

Automation

Automatic product unloading

An automatic outfeed system comes with the V505T punching and shearing machine to further reduce labor costs and increase automation. The system automatically lifts to drop short products in a bin while a motorized unit moves longer products from the machine to the outfeed roller conveyor that tilts to either side for product output in one of two outfeed positions.

Productivity

Fully automated, rapid infeed with gripper truck

The V505-160T is equipped with the fastest gripper truck available. The servo-driven gripper truck reaches max speeds of 110 m/min (260 ft/min) and a precision material sensor to provide full approach speed when processing angles. The standard 6 m (20’) conveyor can be extended up to 15 m (50’). The gripper truck doesn’t need to traverse all the way to the furthest end of the conveyor to save time in processing.

The entire system becomes fully automated with the cross-transports and integrated magnets, reducing issues caused by human error, while reducing labor costs significantly.

High quality

Accurate profile positioning for better quality end products

The V505T comes equipped with three solid external hold downs to guarantee angles are always perfectly positioned before punching, shearing and drilling. Plus, the two punching frames and slug stripper assembly make sure the material is always locked in place in the correct position when the punching tool retracts. This reduces punch wear while providing better quality results.

Productivity

High material yield with minimal waste

The Voortman V505-160T only has 65 mm (2-9/16”) of unprocessable length. That’s only about 1% of a 6-meter (20’) stock length, and even less than 1% on longer angle bars.

Productivity

Production without scrap

The V505-160T can produce parts from a cut-to-length angle bar without trim/clean cuts for scrap-free processing. Applying the “no trim/clean cut” principle is especially important when sourcing angle profiles already cut to the proper length and you don’t want to have any scrap left over. In this situation the gripper truck places the angle at the correct position, retracts so the machine can punch close to the profile end, grips the profile again and then feeds the product out of the machine.

Productivity

Powerful punching

The Voortman V505-160T has two heavy-duty punch frames, each equipped with three punching tools. Each frame has a powerful 80-ton hydraulic cylinder for punching angles up to 19 mm (3/4”) thickness. The punching cylinder is mounted on two linear guidance rails and driven with pneumatic cylinders. The V505T’s quickly and automatically selects tools from the toolchanger without the need to change them manually when the machine switches processes, significantly improving productivity.

User-friendly

Easily remove and replace punching blocks

The V505T is designed with replaceable punch blocks weighing only 7 kg (15 lbs) so your operators can easily change or replace tooling in the machine. The die is also separated from the punch and fixed in the punching frame, so operators have easy access for changing dies.

High quality

Optimized shear for high cutting quality

The Voortman V505-160T features a massive 245-ton cylinder for shearing angles. The shearing blade is optimized with four different sizes for perfect shearing on angles within a range of 35 mm (1-3/8”) to 160 mm (6-5/16”). The blade can be quickly be rotated and locked at the correct radius dimension for shearing the angle being processed.

Features and processes

Punching

Punching which is by far the cheapest and fastest process to create holes has a distinctive character compared to milling, drilling and cutting. Punching is allowed for most projects within certain boundaries and if your production parts show relatively little variation in thicknesses, hole sizes, shapes and material types, punching will likely be the most preferable process. Voortman punching machines have tool holders with multiple punches and dies, which increases versatility and hole quality and reduces your downtime due to tool changes.

Shearing

Shearing is compared to thermal cutting and sawing the fastest of the three processes offered by Voortman for trimming profiles and is only available on Flat & Angle processing machines. Where punching is the cheapest and fastest process for hole making, the same applies to shearing with regards to trimming profiles. In combination with a deburring machine, perfect results can be achieved and with or without post-processing, the surface created by shearing is acceptable for many applications.

Numbering

Numbering relieves your operators from writing down numbers and codes manually. This saves you a significant amount of time and costs. Numbering means processing numbers or codes on a product for further processing. It increases traceability of your parts making your production less prone to errors.

VACAM Machine

Every machine is equipped with our in-house developed VACAM control software. All machines share the same “look-and-feel” which significantly reduces your learning curve. Within VACAM's open platform, production data can easily be exchanged with third party ERP and MRP software, providing up-to-date insight in the progress of your projects. VACAM provides a real-time graphical representation of your workflows and processes and analyses imported products instantly. The software automatically suggests the best solution for any foreseeable problems. This way, your production is not interrupted resulting in increased efficiency and runtime of the system.

VACAM in the office
