Free to cut any shape faster than ever before
ALL KINDS OF SHAPES
The V807 robotic profile processor is capable of processing nearly any kind of shape that needs to be produced. Rat holes, seismic structural design connections (like slotted web and “dog bone” cuts), copes at the start or end of a product, block outs, holes in every size and shape, weld preparations and marking on all 4 sides are just some examples of possible cuts the V807’s robot can process thermally.
HIGH SPEED PROCESSING
Processes like drilling, milling, sawing and acetylene cutting can either restrict the range of operations or be quite time-consuming compared to robotic plasma processing. In many cases the V807 can be not only an efficient replacement for these processes combined, but it can provide even more possibilities for future growth while increasing the speed of processing.
Fast profile measuring
The V807 robotic thermal profile processor uses a measuring sensor attached to the cutting torch nozzle for fast, reliable and precise measurements. During the cutting process the difference between actual and theoretical dimensions are automatically compensated in the machine parameters to ensure the most accurate product possible. To speed up the process even more, the coping robot only measuring the sides of the profile that will actually be processed.
Processing and layout marking on all four sides
Automated marking saves time and cost in the assembly area of your workshop, and the V807 can automatically mark all four sides of the profile with its ability to completely reach all sides of the material, even the underside. When marking only three sides, assembly employees still need to perform manual measurements on the fourth side of the profile. That’s why the Voortman V807 was designed to reach across the entire cutting area to create the most automated plasma cutting machine in its class.
Breakthrough rotational axis design
Maximizing reachability in a minimal footprint was the goal when designing the V807. Voortman engineers developed an innovative rotational axis design for the robotic arm mount. Rack and pinion guides use a high-end servo motor for absolute accuracy and speed. The calibrated Stäubli robot is attached to the rotational disc directly under the rack and pinion guides and bearings, eliminating any momentum concerns on the external axis.
Roller feed system with secure clamping and accurate measuring
The V807 roller feed measurement and clamping system locks profiles in exact position and maintains alignment throughout processing. Hours of production can be saved with a roller feed measuring system compared to a pusher/gripper truck which needs to go back and forth for loading the next profiles. Voortman’s roller feed system can operate with full automation within a standard range of profile processing when using Voortman’s automated in-feed cross transports, with enough stability and support to properly position and process beams up to 15.000 kg (33,000 lbs).
Efficient nesting & low scrap
Many plasma cutting robots require a perfectly trim cut after finishing a product before it can start processing the next piece, but the V807 doesn’t need to perform a trim cut. The V807 can import DSTV+ files or use VACAM’s beam nesting module to create continuous nestings and get the most product from each stock length to reduce costs.
FEATURES AND PROCESSES
The most versatile application process in most cases is coping and the machine capable of being as close to a “all-in-one” solution as possible is a robotic plasma processor. Rat holes, seismic structural design connections like jay-allan and “dog bone” cuts, copes at the lead or trail end of a product, block outs, holes in any size, weld preparations, marking on all sides – all are possible to process with a plasma unit and a robot.
INTEGRATION WITH YOUR SHOP
Versality in its best forms
The V807 is incredibly versatile and can be part of a complete new layout including roller conveyors and cross-transports connected to other Voortman processing machines, or as a stand-alone processing center. We’ll work with you to come up with a solution for any situation you face – including implementation into an existing production line, or outside loading and roller conveyors. The roller-feed measuring system is completely integrated in the machine housing and offers complete freedom for planning and expansion in your workshop. You can start with a small layout and easily extend the machine with more automated logistics or add complementary machines at a later time as your business grows. Voortman makes machines that can grow with your company seamlessly when extra capacity is needed without increasing labor costs.
Full automation in a modular split system
Reduce laber costs and increase efficiency
MSI, also referred to as Multi System Integration, opens the door to fully automate your production by connecting machines with cross transports, roller conveyors, product buffers, and material sensors. Production data only needs to be imported once and then MSI automatically distributes the data to all machines integrated in your production system.
VACAM decides optimal material route
Based on the production on hand, customer preferences and the available machinery in the MSI-line, VACAM automatically decides the optimal route to reach the highest efficiency. MSI designates the end of transporting raw profiles and semi-finished products from machine to machine. MSI stands for one integrated production system. You can track and monitor every profile, product and future planning in real time by using VACAM, Voortman’s proprietary CNC control software installed on every machine.
Designing your optimal layout
Together with you, the Voortman team designs the entire layout based on your current or expected production characteristics, such as type of profiles, product length, number of processes, hours in your work week and budget.
An integral plan to keep your production line safe and up and running
After installing a machine or production line, Voortman installs a net of safety measures. These safety measures comprise of light curtains, emergency cords and emergency stop buttons. Voortman has made it one of its priorities to deliver a safe production line, yet not hold up production if the operator needs to enter the safe zone. This is accomplished by using gated light curtains allowing loading and unloading while the machines continue processing, and by delivering remote controls with a kill switch that operators can use when carrying out tasks inside the safety zone.
