Take a cool aerial tour through New Zealand’s largest steel fabricator

While Ocean typically targets the small to medium fabricator, many of Ocean’s CNC machines end up in large fabrication facilities due to their exceptional versatility and their ability to process just about any profile.

In this very cool aerial tour through John Jones, the largest steel fabricator in South Island New Zealand, we see both Peddinghaus and Ocean Avenger drill lines.

The Avenger processes steel profiles that would be impossible to do on a regular beam line, such as this 24”x24” RHS steel section.

Due to a major earthquake back in 2011, the NZ building code is going through a major rewrite to account for seismic activity and there are a lot of major projects underway featuring new seismic engineering concepts.

This particular column is a 24”x24” column, made from press brake formed plate, with multiple holes drilled on all four faces. Despite having a large multispindle Peddinghaus drill line, this part was allocated to their ever faithful Ocean Avenger of which they have two.

Ocean Machinery in Mexico City at FABTECH Mexico 2016

Last week (May 4th-6th) Ocean Machinery headed south of the border to FABTECH Mexico, held at Centro Banamex in Mexico City. Central American Sales Rep, Luis Pena and Ocean President, Hunter Fry teamed up with our dealer ACAT Mexicana to display and demonstrate the speed, precision and versatility of the Ocean Avenger CNC Beam Drill Line. The space limitations within the ACAT booth really showcased the fact that even the smallest shop can accommodate an Ocean Avenger Drill Line without any problems.

Steel Builders, Sydney Australia credits the Ocean Avenger as the cornerstone to their rapid growth.

It’s always gratifying to see the progress and development path that our customers are on, once they have embraced the benefits of CNC Steel Fabrication. Approximately 5 years ago Ian Head of Steel Builders in Sydney Australia embraced our Ocean Avenger CNC Drill Line. The immediate improvement to the bottom line and cash flow improvement that this machine made for them started Steel Builders down a path of incremental steps, and it wasn’t long before they had installed the Ocean Liberator CNC Beam Coping Machine, as well as a Peddinghaus CNC Saw Drill Line and CNC Angle Line.

The Avenger CNC Drill Line was the first step in the evolution that led to the rapid growth of Steel Builder in Sydney Australia. The Avenger is the most popular CNC Drill Line with more than 700 installations in over 60 countries around the world.

Just look at the super clean copes that the highly affordable Ocean Liberator CNC Oxy-Fuel Beam Coping Machine is capable of in the hands of a competent operator. Why would you ever cope any other way?

Steel Builders also modified their Liberator with simple mirrors attached to the torch head so that they can easily observe the cut on the far side of the flange, and added a remote monitor to the machine column to make it easier to observe the machine speed and travel while watching the cut. So simple yet so effective. This is what we love to see, customers getting the most out of their machines.

South Florida based Go-Tilt recently purchased the Ocean Avenger, Eliminator and Terminator for some exciting new projects they have coming up. With this new location just up the street from our office it gave us the unique opportunity to get photos of the actual deliveries and shoot some really cool video.

The Ocean Avenger and Eliminator were the first pieces of equipment to arrive.

Everything is here, let the installation begin!

With everything now in the building and the installation ready to begin, it was time to have some fun. We placed a GoPro camera in the rafters during the installation to get some time-lapse footage of everything coming together. We weren’t sure what to expect, but we were hoping for some pretty cool footage… and that is exactly what we got!

Check it out – 3.5 day installation in just 2 minutes.

FABTECH 2015: Avenger PLUS CNC Drill Line

At this year’s FABTECH Expo in Chicago, Ocean Machinery showcased our unique, super fast and versatile Avenger PLUS CNC Drill Line. Running demos non-stop for 4 days, this top-selling machine has become a game changer in the structural steel fabricating industry.

What makes this machine stand out from the average Drill Line?

The Avenger PLUS CNC Drill Line – Is a super fast and incredibly versatile beast of a machine and is like no other on the market. The term “Beam Drill Line” does not accurately depict the flexibility of this modern machine tool, as it can easily process a wide variety of shapes including angle, channel, plate, flat bar, t-sections, square or rectangular structural tubing, girders, tapered beams, rails, truck frames, rail car frames, and much more. The Avenger PLUS CNC Drill Line not only drills but also part-marks, scribes, mills, slots, taps and more — it truly is the most versatile CNC drilling machine available!
