  • Production data report and numerous evaluation possibilities
  • Remote diagnosis
  • And much more

User Friendly

User Friendly

  • Automatic, continual swarf removal
  • Can be Installed on either side of the machine

Reduction of Cooling Lubricant

Reduction of Cooling Lubricant

  • Cooling lubricant for drilling tools with inner axial air supply and tools without internal cooling during feeding
  • Automatic use of cooling lubrication only during the drilling process
  • Minimal use of lubricant and compressed air
  • Electronic fill-level monitoring with display on control console

Processing Thin-Walled Profiles

Processing Thin-Walled Profiles

  • Automatic centre support when drilling thin-walled sections and profiles

Low Wear and Low Maintenance

Low Wear and Low Maintenance

  • Drill carriage mounted on dual play-free, pre-stressed linear guide elements
  • High precision during axis movement and when drilling
  • Ball screw with servomotor for high-precision positioning

Short Changing Times for Tools

Short Changing Times for Tools

  • Automatic tool change on all drilling units for the most common tool sizes (magazine capacity 3 x 6)
  • Tool change units comprised of rotary magazines mounted adjacent to the drilling axes and moveing with the drill carriage
  • Tool change automatically sets the correct speed and feed rate values

Automatic Material Clamping and Material Measurement

Automatic Material Clamping and Material Measurement

  • Horizontal clamping device with fixed and movable clamping jaws and long-stroke clamping cylinder
  • Vertical clamping device with four hold-down devices for clamping the material to the machine rollers
  • The clamping devices measure the height and width of the section to be processed for material cross-checking control
  • Optimum clamping of the workpiece during the drilling process

Clamping System

Clamping System

  • Powerful and reliable clamping system reduces vibrations and so prolongs tool life
  • Intelligent material management and dimensional tolerance control

Tool length measurement

Tool length measurement

  • Light barrier for automatic tool length measurement
  • Light barrier is self-cleaning
  • Measured tool length to manage rapid and operating feed speed

Why Buy?

Click the testimonials and case studies to see the positive gains your peers are gaining:

  1. If your fabrication workshop is not considering synchronising the shot-blasting and beamline together and working both machines in lights out automation perhaps you should be?
  2. Why is the steel service centre culture committed to investing in the cheapest beamline with limited capability, automation, speed or service reliability? No wonder value can not be provided to every profile competitively
  3. Why the fabricator needs to invest in a smarter machine than the steel service centre
  4. A fabricator should ask these questions before purchasing a beamline/coping robot to compare the workshop footprint ROI from loss of fabrication vs benefits of internal processing
  5. Ordering a beamline that works with NO LABOUR and in 100% automatic mode and lights out when everyone has left the factory
  6. Benefits for fabricating in house & reasons why to stop losing money purchasing processed steel from steel service centres that increase your fabrication man-hours by 40%, increase schedule & cost by 40%
  7. Any beamline manufacturer or agent of traditional beamlines or automatic systems must answer these critical questions to ensure the fabricator will be competitive
  8. Why the steel service centre refuses to include layout marking for add-on-parts AOP’s
  9. So what’s the problem with the steel service committing the cheapest beamline specification on the market?
