Smart loading with automatic infeed
AUTOMATIC BATCH LOADING
The V505-160T uses 3 m (10’) cross transports with integrated magnets and a tilting roller conveyor for automatic processing. Your operator can load a large batch of angles on the infeed cross transports and let the machine continuously process them with active buffer management. Liftable magnets separate the first angle from the batch and transports it into the machine with the tilting roller conveyor and gripper truck, while the remaining profiles are automatically moved closer to the infeed conveyors, ensuring the machine can process entire batches with little-to-no manual intervention.
AUTOMATIC BATCH LOADING
The V505-160T is equipped with the fastest gripper truck available. The servo-driven gripper truck reaches max speeds of 110 m/min (260 ft/min) and a precision material sensor to provide full approach speed when processing angles. The standard 6 m (20’) conveyor can be extended up to 15 m (50’). The gripper truck doesn’t need to traverse all the way to the furthest end of the conveyor to save time in processing. It can be automatically positioned right at the end of profiles smaller than the full conveyor length to avoid unnecessary movement and long loading times. The entire system becomes fully automated with the cross-transports and integrated magnets, reducing issues caused by human error, while reducing labor costs significantly.

Automatic product unloading
An automatic outfeed system comes with the V505T punching and shearing machine to further reduce labor costs and increase automation. The system automatically lifts to drop short products in a bin while a motorized unit moves longer products from the machine to the outfeed roller conveyor that tilts to either side for product output in one of two outfeed positions.
FEATURES AND PROCESSES
Punching which is by far the cheapest and fastest process to create holes has a distinctive character compared to milling, drilling and cutting. Punching is allowed for most projects within certain boundaries and if your production parts show relatively little variation in thicknesses, hole sizes, shapes and material types, punching will likely be the most preferable process. Voortman punching machines have tool holders with multiple punches and dies, which increases versatility and hole quality and reduces your downtime due to tool changes.
