A DO-IT-ALL MACHINE

Copes, bolt holes, slots, notches, bevels, weld preparation and layout marking - The Voortman V807 robotic thermal profile cutting system can process it all in one pass with the ability to reach all four sides of the material with exceptional speed and accuracy. The V807 combines all these functions for an impressive economic advantage over dedicated drilling, milling, sawing, punching, shearing and layout marking systems. Combining these processes in a “do-it-all machine” provides a quicker ROI with less floor space.

PROCESS ANY SHAPE

The V807 robotic profile processor is capable of processing nearly any kind of shape that needs to be produced. Rat holes, seismic structural design connections (like slotted web and “dog bone” cuts), copes at the start or end of a product, block outs, holes in every size and shape, weld preparations and marking on all 4 sides are just some examples of possible cuts the V807’s robot can process thermally.

ERROR FREE MEANS EASY ASSEMBLY

Keep your workflow free from re-work, time lags, and on-the-spot manual adjustments. Ready-to-assemble products will save you a lot of time and hassle and your pre-calculated costs remain intact. In addition to a perfect fit, we also want you to be able to meet your standards. Our goal is achieved: To provide you with an error-free assembly where all your end products meet their quality standards.
An independent testing institute has successfully subjected our cutting robot to various tests. Our V807 passed with flying colors on all of these topics:

  1. Hardness
  2. Surface roughness
  3. Beam flange weld access hole quality
  4. Bolt hole sizing and positioning
  5. Perpendicularity

USE OUR BUILT-IN INTELLIGENCE

Of course you want as much continuity as possible in your processes, but you may be dependent on the knowledge of your operators. That is why we have automated as many advanced processes as possible and also built in many smart features that provide your operators with continuity. All features can be accessed with just one action in the VACAM interface on a clear 24" touch panel. All software features and functionalities are fully included in the supplied VACAM control software.

No programming required with our easy-to-use interface

Easily import DSTV and DSTV+ files, produce and batch products without any programming knowledge. Edit imports or create new products from scratch with VACAM and VACAD Editor. With the fully visual interface, no programming is required here either. Handy creation wizards help create advanced cuts such as Rat Holes, Flange Removals and Dog Bones. Even review your product in real-time 3D to avoid unforeseen errors.

Calculated amperage proposals and quick tool changes

While starting the cutting procedure, VACAM analyzes which amperage provides the highest cutting quality for all types of cuts in the product. While calculating an average amperage, the number of 'True-Holes' is leading for the final proposal. With Hypertherm EasyConnect tool changes are made easy. Automatic tool calibration is the following step. With this calibration, software parameters are again aligned with the physical values and cutting quality is guaranteed.

Divide multiple products with just one cut

To get the most out of your production and to minimize logistics operations, it is important to combine your products in batches. Smart features in VACAM help you to put together the most efficient batches quickly and easily. Among those is our Common Cut feature. In a full batch of products multiple products are divided with just a single cut, saving you time in the throughput of your batches. During the plasma cut, the torch position is slightly compensated to also divide the natural taper between the two products.

Paves the way for the perfect cutting path

With the Clearance Pocket feature enabled, the robot looks ahead in the cutting process to optimize the cutting path and clear blockages. Especially with web cuts in H or I profiles the torch can be blocked by the flanges. With the Clearance Pocket function, the robot cuts away parts in remnant material that could potentially cause collision and paves the way for a perfect cut.

Outfeed short and heavy profiles stitched together

When processing heavy profiles in shorter lengths, you can take advantage of our Stitching feature. Where you would expect a lot of downtime by going into the machine several times to remove heavy products, the stitching feature ensures that all end products automatically get outfeeded as a whole. Your operator unloads a single profile and separates the end-products from each other at a preferred location, minimizing logistic operations.

AIM FOR THE HIGHEST QUALITY

Our V807 is made to deliver quality. Every module and component is subservient to this goal. Therefore, this machine has been carefully assembled from only the best components. To deliver quality but above all to guarantee quality for the long term. Especially in software, we continue to optimize to be able to perform more advanced cuts more efficiently with a continuation or even increase in product quality.

No more manual adjustments

When you cut H profiles, you have to deal with radii and different profile thicknesses. During cutting, real-time compensations must be made for these differences. Manual compensations are not an option and that is why we have automated this process in the Speed Compensation feature. After all, VACAM knows every detail of the processed profiles. Combined with our known cutting parameters, this is a guarantee for continuous quality.

Every hole a quality hole

To speed up and simplify the cutting process, we have extended Hypertherm's well-known Truehole range. When processing multiple thicknesses, time-consuming gas changes are eliminated and transitions between holes within or holes outside the original range are cut more gradually.

Web cuts without collision

Based on parameters from our own cutting experience, VACAM is able to calculate the most optimal cutting angle when making web cuts. Automatic Angle Calculation allows the torch to get as close to the flange as possible during cutting without the risk of collision or damaging the flange.

Only quality remains

A small but very effective feature is automatic piercing in waste material. With the start of a new cutting path, piercing through the material is unfortunately necessary and does not contribute to controllable quality. By positioning the piercing processes in waste parts of your profiles and creating a lead-in to the actual cutting path, end products are left with controlled high quality cuts. An additional advantage is that slag also adheres to waste materials, resulting in significant reduced cleaning time and a faster throughput for your end-products.

Out-of-the-box quality

Without necessary disassembly, the robot performs out-of-the-box (container) exactly according to the quality tests taken at the assembly. The machine is taken out of the container as a whole and placed in position. All what's left are automatic robot and tool calibrations and infeed material to start producing.

We achieve quality together

How can we guarantee maximum up-time if we cannot rely on the components in our machines? We aim for sustainability and continuity when using our machines and that is only possible with the right partners who, just like us, attach great importance to quality. Carefully chosen components that are expertly assembled by our professionals. That's our foundation for your maximum up-time.

WHAT ABOUT THE INSIDE?

Things can get hot inside the V807. That is why our engineers paid a lot of attention to the finishing in the early stages of the design. All cables run through the steel frames or are incorporated in the shielded rotation disc. The visible machine parts are dust free and contain hinged access hatches for easy access.

4 side processing with Swiss precision
Staubli is one of our quality partners and is the manufacturer of our cutting robot. Thanks to an open interface, we are able to connect their robot exactly to our software and integrate it into our optimizations. Its position eliminates any momentum for optimal stability during cutting and the robust IP65 robot is insensitive to dust.

Easily exchange between plasma and oxy-fuel
Switch quickly between plasma and oxy-fuel and process an extensive range of profile thicknesses. Everything is integrated, prepared and concealed in the rotating disc and guarantees a quick exchange to boost your flexibility!

ROAD TO INCREASED OUTPUT

Our V807 is designed for fast delivery and installation to meet your demand for higher output as quickly as possible. With the fully modular and largely integrated components, you can easily extend the machine with more automated logistics or add complementary machines at a later time as your business grows.

More flexibility in just 7 minutes

In addition to a larger output, we also find it important to offer flexibility in your production. In addition to cutting thicker profiles, you can also use oxy-fuel cutting for advanced cuts. Thanks to its narrow shape, an oxy-fuel torch can get much closer to the flange of an H or I profile. It is often thought that switching between plasma and oxy-fuel is time consuming and therefore not efficient. Our V807 is fully prepared for plasma and oxy-fuel cutting, requiring only 7 minutes for a manual switch.

Fast delivery and installation

A new and smart design has ensured that the V807 has a considerably small footprint, which brings many advantages. The cutting robot is completely lean built and tested in our workshop. Thanks to its size, it can be placed in a container in its entirety without essential disassembly. The fast manufacturing and available stock in the USA guarantee very fast and efficient delivery and installation times.

Reduce post-processing time

Hypertherm's industry-leading cutting technology, in combination with Voortman software optimizations guarantee the highest possible cutting quality. Not only beneficial for your end products, but also very beneficial for a fast throughput. With that cutting quality, postprocessing products is considerably easier and faster. The amount of slag is reduced to a minimum. In addition, it adheres much less to the material. Your product is ready for welding with just a few manual actions.

Smallest footprint on the market

Very high output with little space used in your workshop. That was our initial thought in the engineering of this machine. And that's how it turned out. By integrating all controls and the complete measuring system into the machine, the V807 has the smallest footprint on the market!

Highest possible throughput

The V807 comes with our in-house developed and produced handling systems. Fast roller conveyors and two-way cross transports provide fully automated infeed and outfeed with a maximum speed of 200 feet per minute. The VACAM control system provides buffer management and early infeed, whereby profiles are always positioned near the datum line or even in front of the machine in order to keep the throughput as high as possible. With fully automated processes in the machine and software-controlled material handling, the focus of your operators will mainly be on keeping up with the machine with loading and unloading materials.

Produce both indoors and outdoors

Depending on your capacity requirements, the V807 can be used as both a standalone workhorse and in combination with other machines. Thanks to the dynamic construction you can easily implement this machine in all conceivable situations. With the fully integrated measuring system it is literally a complete box that has to be put in position. Do you want to place the machine outside? With everything integrated in the closed housing, that is certainly a possibility. Regardless of whether you want to split processes or want an all-in-one solution, the V807 always aims for the highest output.

Easy implementation in existing lines

Only one mouse click is needed to change the working direction. The hardware of our V807 is engineered both ways with our control software to manage the settings. This enables a very flexible implementation. With the 'all-in-the-box' solution, also the roller feed measuring system is integrated inside the housing. No need for additional measuring trucks or systems. Therefore the V807 can be placed between existing roller conveyors without extra effort.

INTEGRATION IN YOUR WORKSHOP

The Voortman V807 robotic thermal cutting machine as all other machines is delivered with the VACAM operating software, this means all machines speak the same “language”. This makes the V807 incredibly versatile and can be part of a complete new layout including roller conveyors and cross-transports connected to other Voortman processing machines, or as a stand-alone processing center.

We’ll work with you to come up with a solution for any situation you face – including implementation into an existing production line, or outside loading and roller conveyors. The roller-feed measuring system is completely integrated in the machine housing and offers complete freedom for planning and expansion in your workshop. You can start with a small layout and easily extend the machine with more automated logistics or add complementary machines at a later time as your business grows. Voortman makes machines that can grow with your company seamlessly when extra capacity is needed without increasing labor costs.

Reduce laber costs and increase efficiency

MSI, also referred to as Multi System Integration, opens the door to fully automate your production by connecting machines with cross transports, roller conveyors, product buffers, and material sensors. Production data only needs to be imported once and then MSI automatically distributes the data to all machines integrated in your production system.

VACAM decides optimal material route

Based on the production on hand, customer preferences and the available machinery in the MSI-line, VACAM automatically decides the optimal route to reach the highest efficiency. MSI designates the end of transporting raw profiles and semi-finished products from machine to machine. MSI stands for one integrated production system. You can track and monitor every profile, product and future planning in real time by using VACAM, Voortman’s proprietary CNC control software installed on every machine.

Designing your optimal layout

Together with you, the Voortman team designs the entire layout based on your current or expected production characteristics, such as type of profiles, product length, number of processes, hours in your work week and budget.

An integral plan to keep your production line safe and up and running

After installing a machine or production line, Voortman installs a net of safety measures. These safety measures comprise of light curtains, emergency cords and emergency stop buttons. Voortman has made it one of its priorities to deliver a safe production line, yet not hold up production if the operator needs to enter the safe zone. This is accomplished by using gated light curtains allowing loading and unloading while the machines continue processing, and by delivering remote controls with a kill switch that operators can use when carrying out tasks inside the safety zone.
