Drilling line increases productivity

Posted on by in News

A Somerset based steelwork contractor has purchased a FICEP Orient 6 drilling line in order to compliment its existing CNC machinery and further increase productivity.

The high performance Orient is one of the latest generation of FICEP drilling lines said to have been designed to process beams and profiles quickly, accurately and cost effectively. It is equipped with a single drill head that can be orientated in three positions at high speed, which reduces dead times in the drilling cycle.

Mark Jones, Managing Director of FICEP UK commented: “They were looking to increase the productivity, capability and accuracy of structural steel fabricated within their workshop. After extensive research of the drilling machines available in the marketplace they concluded that the FICEP Orient 6 most closely matched  their requirements and expectations.”
