HIGH STABILITY SAWING AND LONG LIFETIME
VB Range bandsaw machines have a welded base frame for maximum stability. This ensure that the saw always has the desired tension and doesn’t deviate from the intended saw line. The machine can process at a consistent, higher pressure supported by the robust frame.
Several features included in the machine extend the lifetime of bandsaw blades. A swarf brush removes chips from pockets in the saw blade and supports maximum saw band speeds for the best results. The VB Range also has a maximum force limit ensuring the saw always pushes with optimal force for exact cutting functionality.
Short Piece Removal System (SPRS)
The VB Range can be equipped with an automatic Short Piece Removal System (SPRS) so off-cuts and small products can be automatically removed, maintaining automated production. All products up to 1.400 mm (55″) are clamped during cutting and pushed out sideways after being transferred from the saw. Clean cuts and small products shorter than 250 mm (10″) are dropped into a separate bin. The SPRS is available in combination with a gripper truck measurement system.
Height detection laser
When the sawing cycle starts, the blade moves down towards the material at full speed, until the height detection laser reaches the top of the material. At that point the machine switches to the required sawing speed for that cut. Speeding up movements between cuts limits the time the machine isn’t actively sawing, increasing the efficiency of the VB Range.
Automatic in- & outfeed
After loading the DSTV or DSTV+ (completely nested) files into VACAM’s processing list and loading the (optional) cross-transports with raw material, the machine can be started with just one press of a button. Once the machine is running your operator doesn’t have to do anything to help the production process other than keeping it stocked with raw materials and unloading finished products from the outfeed cross-transports.
FEATURES AND PROCESSES
This system is the fastest measuring system for profiles in the market. The absence of a truck enables the positioning of a next profile in front of the machine, while processing a current profile. As your profile needs to be clamped only once, a significant amount of waiting time is eliminated. Our most common configuration, a so-called back-to-back, combines a VB saw with a beam drilling machine. In this case, the measuring rolls of the drilling machine can be used for both machines. This very compact system requires limited space and ensures a high level of autonomy.

The fastest measuring and transportation system for profiles in the market
The Voortman roller feed measuring system uses two feeder rolls to move material. Two measurement wheels are installed to accurately track the profile’s position. Feeder rolls are often used because of the required space and the flexibility when integrated into a larger system. With a measuring roll system, it is also possible to load a new profile once the first profile has passed the edge of the cross transports.
Since a feeder roll does not have a rail, it is possible to feed into the machine from two sides. With Voortman, you have a choice in measurement systems, making it possible to tailor the system to the characteristics of your production database.
