Hydraulic Double-Jaw Vise Assembly
Automatic hydraulic double jaw vise assembly ensures positive clamping of the workpiece during the drilling operation, both horizontally and vertically. Clamping jaws can operate independently (fixed reference for the web on the beam flange). The clamping pressure of the roller clamping jaws automatically adjusts during the material positioning and drilling cycle. No special programming is required.
The non-datum clamp is provided with an encoder so the vertical drill head positioning can be centered around the actual section depth. This feature also permits the web holes to be referenced from either flange.

Laser Measuring System
The 1001 DFB-LASER is supplied with an internally mounted laser measuring system that accurately monitors the section movement in conjunction with the programmed lineal position. The system is not affected by mill scale and any slippage that is associated with mechanical measuring disc systems.

Automatic Web Probing (Top Side)
Device for the automatic zero reference setting of the drill spindle gauge line when the head is horizontally positioned to the web axis. The device consists of one button (probe sensing unit) that locates the position of the web top side and the flange height.

Scribing Software & Floating Head Tool Assembly
Device for automatic scribing operations through drilling unit. This device is supplied with a special tool and a self-adapting system which is automatically adjusted according to the material deformation. The necessary software/hardware for scribing on both flanges and top web surfaces is provided.

System for structural section clamping. Base for saw mitering at +45°/-60° complete with angle positioning system programmable via the CNC. Spray mist blade lubrication/cooling system. Removable chip bin.
Conveyors with Liftable Rollers
Conveyors with liftable rollers which lift the material above the saw bed as sections are positioned into and out of the saw. These rollers are positioned in the infeed and outfeed conveyor sections next to the saw and are lifted automatically.

Unloading Device with Magnet for Short Pieces
This special magnetic device, with controlled axis, is for the automatic unloading of short parts and trim-cut pieces. This system can be used with I beams having the following specifications:

►Minimum width 3-1/8”
►Maximum piece weight to be transferred 330 lbs.

Pieces or trim-cut pieces with a length between 1-9/16” and 47-1/4” the piece or scrap is transferred onto a shutter unloading device for short pieces and then onto the first area of the outfeed conveyor.

Vertical Hold-Downs
Two (2) vertical hold-downs for clamping of the section, one on each side of the blade.
