Each machine plays a vital role in the production process, contributing to the overall efficiency and precision of Cornerstone’s beam processing operations.
The V630 is a robust beam drilling machine that excels in drilling holes, marking, and coping structural steel profiles. With its powerful drilling capabilities and high-speed operations, the V630 ensures precise and accurate hole placement, allowing for seamless connections and fast assembly. The VB1250 horizontal mitre band sawing machine complements the line with its advanced sawing capabilities, effortlessly cutting through steel profiles with accuracy and speed. This integration enables Cornerstone to achieve clean and precise cuts, reducing material waste and optimizing production output.
By incorporating the 1000M, Cornerstone gains the ability to create custom profiles and contours with exceptional precision, catering to the unique needs of their customers. The V704 further enhances the line by providing advanced marking capabilities. This machine ensures clear and legible marking on the steel profiles, enabling easy identification and efficient assembly during the construction process.
Finally, the VSB 1500-4/15, a highly versatile shot blasting machine, adds the finishing touch to the beam processing line. By effectively removing impurities and contaminants from the steel profiles, the VSB 1500-4/15 ensures the highest quality surface finish, enhancing the durability and longevity of Cornerstone’s exterior building products.
Voortman V808 Robotic Profile Processor
The Voortman V808 is a highly versatile robotic profile processor that combines multiple processes such as drilling, milling, sawing, punching, shearing, and marking into a single machine. With its all-in-one functionality, the V808 offers significant cost savings over separate solutions, eliminating the need for multiple machines and improving operational efficiency. It can process a wide range of shapes and layouts, including rat holes, seismic structural design connections, copes, blockouts, holes of any size and shape, weld preparations, and marking on all four sides of the material. Equipped with precise measuring sensors and automatic compensation, the V808 ensures the highest level of accuracy in the final product.
The V808 features a powerful roller feed measuring and clamping system that provides fast and precise positioning for profiles up to 15,000 kg (33,000 lbs). This fully automatic system eliminates the need for additional pushers or grippers, saving time and increasing productivity. The machine’s ability to handle large and heavy profiles, combined with its efficient nesting capabilities, reduces material waste and optimizes resource usage. Additionally, the V808’s integration capabilities with other Voortman machines enable seamless communication and future scalability for expanding manufacturing operations.
With its Xtensive Hole Performance, the V808 delivers exceptional cutting quality, producing laser-like results for holes and inner contours. This ensures high precision and accuracy in the finished products. The machine’s versatile functionality, precise measurement capabilities, efficient nesting, and integration options make it a highly efficient and cost-effective solution for profile processing. By utilizing the V808, Cornerstone can streamline their manufacturing processes, increase productivity, reduce material waste, and achieve superior quality in their exterior building products.
By combining the VB1250, V630, 1000M, V704, VSB 1500-4/15, and V808 machines into an integrated beam processing line, Cornerstone elevates their manufacturing capabilities to unparalleled heights. The seamless coordination between these advanced machines optimizes efficiency, precision, and quality, allowing Cornerstone to consistently deliver top-notch exterior building products to their customers across North America.
