The shortage of welders and the traditional way of detailing become causes for bottlenecks. Many traditional connections have extensive welds that emphasize production in the department with the most manual operations, while there is a shortage of qualified welders. We show you how to increase efficiency by reducing the number of welds in your production.
By creating more notches and copes in profiles, beams and columns can fit up more tightly to each other, and allow the use of bolted connections for example with clip angles which require less manual welding. This demountable connection reduces welding hours while enhancing circularity at the same time. Voortman is setting the standard with fully automated milling on its profile drilling and milling machines.
Less labor: a coped and bolted connection
You can create any contour with the push of a button, without limitations or additional knowledge required. Our VACAM Software allows your detailers to do what they do best - constructing - whereafter VACAM does the rest!
Having explored the benefits of the milling process, you may be wondering what's next. Are you able to work with this? Of course! Unlike other companies, we make it very simple for you.
Jak jste zvyklí; konstruujte pomocí svého softwaru pro vytváření detailů.
VACAM automaticky rozpozná tvar obrysu a zajistí, že se přizpůsobí poloze a materiálu součásti, aby byla zajištěna vyrobitelnost.
Náš frézovací modul automaticky definuje nejlepší nástroje a parametry, což vede k nejefektivnější frézovací dráze. Výzkum a vývoj společnosti Voortman provedl rozsáhlé testování, aby dospěl ke správnému mixu šablon pro každý obrys, každý typ profilu. Jedinečná kombinace strojírenství a odborných znalostí ocelových konstrukcí.

The output from your detailing software is automatically converted to the correct milling paths. From simple milling contours to the most complex flange removals, our beam milling machines can handle it automatically!
The correct milling path is calculated in advance; your operator just needs to push a button, and the machine starts milling even the most challenging contours.
Perfectly in line with the One-Button-Automation philosophy that Voortman stands for. The machine performs with ease. No additional programming or process knowledge required. Useful for dealing with various operators in different shifts.
Our beam milling machines can mill away 20mm in one pass. Their short tool lengths, combined with rigid frames, enable faster and more accurate milling than comparable machines.
Unrivaled stability during milling is what sets Voortman beam milling machines apart from the rest. The nice smooth quality of the contour and surface that is milled can be seen immediately. Just by looking at the milled profile, you can tell how extraordinarily stable and rigid the Voortman drilling systems are.
Sparks will fly during the milling process. Many people believe these sparks harm the milling process, but the opposite is true. In any machining process, you don't want the heat to be in your tools, but rather in the chips. These sparks are just burnt chips.
During milling, we use the full length of our milling tools. This speeds up the process and prolongs their life, allowing us to achieve unmatched quality at reduced costs.

This milling package enables the machine to process inner contours.
The following features are supported:
You can choose between roughing or contouring, both with their own set of advantages.
Using stitches (small tabs) makes it possible to produce features faster. You do not need to mill the entire contour. Grinding away only the stitches saves considerable time and wear on your tools, while preventing large pieces from flying around that could cause damage to your machine or worse, your operator.
This milling package enables the machine to process outer contours.
The following features are supported:
VACAM will always ensure that the outside edges of the profile remain intact while milling outer contours, allowing it to be transported to other machines for further processing.
This milling package enables the machine to process weld preparations and weld access holes (rat holes). The following features are supported in I/H profiles.
The required tooling for Beam Milling Package 3 is specifically designed for Voortman machines. This way, the milling functionality reaches maximum performance on these machines.
