Steelwork contractor updates production facility

Posted on by in News

Leach Structural Steelwork has replaced its production systems with a brand new, fully automatic CNC sawing and drilling system from the Dutch manufacturer Voortman.

To achieve the best efficiency, Voortman recommended what it claims are the world’s fastest band sawing machine – the VB1250 – and the world’s fastest drilling system – the V630 – in a split configuration. Due to the sophisticated operating software, the machines will be interconnected and controlled by just one operator.

Eric Leach, Managing Director of Leach Structural Steelwork said: “We did extensive market research to find the right machines with the most advantages. After many visits, we eventually discovered the expertise and professionalism of Voortman. With over 50 Voortman installations in the UK and Ireland, we felt comfortable to place this order and we are now well placed for the future!”
