Voortman V613

  • Rotatable Drilling Head
  • Solid Steel Base plate
  • Lower Cost
  • Runs without an operator
  • CE approved

The V613 CNC controlled drilling system consists of a rotating drilling unit enables drilling of both flanges and the web. The beam drilling unit is suitable for HSS drills, carbide tipped drills, thread tapping, counter sinking, layout marking and center point marking. Material measuring can be done by a roller feed measuring system or by a feeder truck measuring system. The machine has two automatic tool changers for a total of ten tools which makes this machine also perfect for layout marking, thread tapping or countersinking.


Rotatable drilling head Roller feed measuring system

For customers who do not need the extremely high productivity of the V630 drilling line, which has three independent drilling heads, but require a machine with the same stability and quality level at a lower cost, Voortman developed the V613 drilling line with one rotatable drilling head which can drill both flanges as well as the web. The fastest measuring system for profiles in the market is the Voortman roller feed measuring system. This system combines two driven and two pressure rolls, which use their large contact area to firmly clamp the profile. The two separate measuring discs keep an accurate track of the position of the profile while moving it with high speed. As the profile needs to be clamped only once, waiting time is eliminated.
Feeder truck measuring system Layout marking by milling

For customers who require a lot of small products, or want to fully automate the removal of small products and clean cuts, Voortman also offers a strong servo driven feeder truck capable of moving even the heaviest profiles without losing its stability. More information about our automatic short product removal system can be found under the sawing machines section. The machine can utilize a layout marking tool to create part numbers, contours, welding information and detail part numbers for plates and angles that will be welded to the profile. Voortman’s layout marking tools employ high output air motors running at 20.000 rpm. The tools have a carbide tip with 4 usable sides which can easily be exchanged.
Bottom side marking VACAD software
A separate unit can be installed in the drilling line, for layout marking the bottom side of the profile. This unit uses the same tool as the drilling line. VACAD is a CAD based drawing software fully integrated in our VACAM control system. It can be used to modify changes in the layout marking data from the loaded DSTV files if required. It can also be used to create layout marking data on manually programmed parts.
Web and flange height measurement Profile width measuring
v630_height-measurement v630_width-measuring
All our beam drilling lines automatically measure the web and flange height with a pneumatic probe. This design compensates for mill tolerance issues and corrects the machine automatically prior to running material. When the material is clamped, the width of the profile is measured. The software checks if the correct profile size is inside the machine and also compensates for mill tolerances.
Hydraulic numbering unit Automatic tool changers

The hydraulic numbering unit can be used to mark products with part numbers, so it can be recognized in further production steps. The disc holds 36 characters, which are selected automatically. The V613 has two automatic tool changers for a total of 10 tools. This feature in combination with the overall unmatched automation level of the Voortman drilling lines eliminates the need of an operator being present at the drilling line!
Carbide drilling
Using synchronized servo drives with ball screws for each movement as well as a large 30 kW servo drive for the drilling spindle results in extreme acceleration. Maximum speed is reached in just a fraction of time, and maximum torque in the full range from 1 to 2.500 rpm is perfect for carbide drilling.
