Improved drilling efficiency

Posted on by in News

Voortman’s redesigned V600 drilling system now incorporates a number of new features including an automatic tool changer with a capacity for five drills.

Previously the drilling system was driven by frequency-controlled motors. These have been replaced with servomotors and servodrives which allow not only HSS drills but also carbide tipped drills to be used. This has increased the system’s drilling speed by 300%.

The V600 is also provided with a fixed drilling table which reduces the required floor space for the unit by approximately 50%.

The company said, as a result of its limited footprint and the attractive price, the V600 is very popular with small to medium sized steel fabricators and steel stockholders who have limited floor space available.
