Voortman VP Range

Painting beams and plates

The Voortman VP Range painting machine is designed to automatically paint steel plates and profiles. The VP Range can be combined with other Voortman surface treatment machines, such as a blow-off unit, pre-heater, shot blasting machine, and a drying tunnel. Combining surface treatment machines in one connected line increases production output while reducing required floor space.

ONLY PAINT WHEN MATERIAL IS PRESENT
The VP Range painting machine automatically detects the material dimensions, so it only sprays paint when material is present. This reduces wear on the machine and saves on paint consumables cost

AUTOMATIC HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT
A light barrier near the infeed measures material before entering the VP Range. Then, the upper paint trolley automatically adjusts to the correct height to guarantee an accurate painting process.

Voortman offers a complete surface treatment line that prepares your products for storage and/or further processing. The VP Primer and VSB Shot blaster can be placed back-to-back to save time, costs and handling space requirements in your production facility. The surface treatment line can be placed at the beginning or end of a Voortman processing line depending on the line’s purpose and goal, workshop layout and steel conditions.

Main benefits

Productivity

Only paint when material is present

The VP Range painting machine automatically detects the material dimensions, so it only sprays paint when material is present. This reduces wear on the machine and saves on paint consumables cost.

Productivity

Pre-heater and blow-off unit

The VP Range painting machine is often placed in line with the VSB Shot blasting machine. Voortman offers a pre-heater to remove moisture from profiles, optimizing the effects of shot blasting and painting. A blow-off unit can also be added in front of the pre-heater to remove water from the material.

Versatile

Uses solvent-based and water-based paint

The VP can use various types of paint, including solvent-based and water-based paint. Voortman will advise you on the correct painting system and paint mixing system based on the paint you want to use.

Productivity

Seamless integration in fully automated production line

The VP painting machine is often combined with the VSB shot blasting machine to create a fully automatic surface treatment line. When the VP is also part of a larger layout (MSI), profiles are automatically distributed efficiently to the machines with the required operations to fabricate your product with no manual operator intervention. If the VP painting machine is at the end of an MSI line, it will automatically recognize the products that need to be painted when the system detects them approaching the painting machine.

Productivity

Rapid drying

A drying tunnel can be installed directly after the painting machine to dry the paint in a fast way with temperatures around approximately 40°C. When material reaches the end of the drying tunnel it’s ready to be used for the next step in the production process. A chain transport of T-bars and small supports is used inside the tunnel instead of rollers to prevent damage to the fresh paint.

High quality

Automatic height adjustment

A light barrier near the infeed measures material before entering the VP Range. Then, the upper paint trolley automatically adjusts to the correct height to guarantee an accurate painting process.

High quality

Perfect painting from synchronized movement

The paint trolleys inside the machine have their drive chains all connected to the same motor. This guarantees synchronized movement. The trolleys can be fitted with 3 sets of nozzles so you can automatically switch between different paint types.

User-friendly

Easy cleaning

The inside of the painting cabin is layered with a special protective coating to make cleaning easy. Transparent plastic film is placed over the floor and in front of the interior lights. Turning the plastic film replaces the dirty section with new clean plastic, simplifying the cleaning process for your operator. Adding heating in the floor is optional, to speed up the cleaning process.

Automation

Use multiple colors and paint types

The Voortman VP painting machine can equip up to three separate paint supply systems. Load different colors and paint types and let the machine automatically select the right one for the products that will be painted.

INTEGRATION IN YOUR WORKSHOP

Voortman offers a complete surface treatment line that prepares your products for storage and/or further processing. The VP Primer and VSB Shot blaster can be placed back-to-back to save time, costs and handling space requirements in your production facility. The surface treatment line can be placed at the beginning or end of a Voortman processing line depending on the line’s purpose and goal, workshop layout and steel conditions.

If necessary, a pre-heater and drying tunnel can be added to the surface treatment line. Depending on your output requirements and the size of the profiles, a surface treatment line can be chosen to match. The line is completely autonomous with automatic infeed and outfeed, allowing your operators to focus on feeding and unloading the system.

Features and processes

Fully automatic profile transportation

Full automatic profile transportation is provided in order to integrate the machine to a fully automatic MSI beam line. Our/The VACAM software controls the sensored drag-dogs or liftables, transporting profiles onto the infeed roller conveyor and from the outfeed roller conveyor. Selected products will automatically be produced out of the trading lengths. The cross-transports are able to handle multiple profiles, allowing the machine to operate autonomously for a considerable amount of time.

Automatic material handling

One push of the button is all it takes to get your production done. After importing industry standard DSTV or DSTV+ (pre-nested) files into the processing list of our VACAM Software, your operator can fully focus on loading and unloading the system. No manual intervention is needed in order to keep up with the production speed of the machines.

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

The VACAM software also comes with an Office Edition. VACAM Office Edition runs in a similar way as VACAM Control and Operating software and is dedicated to preparing your products into producible items. The user interface is focused on the preparation activities and also provides real-time insights in the material load on the system enabling you to monitor your production process. With VACAM Office, production information is available throughout the entire company.

VACAD Editor

The integrated VACAD Editor enables your operators to improve output by creating products or quickly improve and correct the product. The interface is easy to understand with straight-forward functionality. Operators will be able to take full advantage of the VACAD Editor and VACAM after a few days with the Voortman trainers.

Easy operation

To enable constant and efficient production, VACAM offers your operators a comprehensive and easy-to-use interface. One of VACAM’s key features is the clear separation between work preparation, production and manual machine operation activities. For each mode of use, the required functions and data are available at your fingertips, enabling you to perform tasks in the right environment. VACAM Control software is known in the industry for its consolidated graphical representation of your production process. With VACAM, you have a clear overview of the process, production status and instant access to online assistance if required.
