Can your Beam Line do this? – Drilling Pre-Welded Assemblies

There are situations that occur in fabrication that necessitate the pre-welding of an assembly and then the subsequent drilling of that assembly. This is normally due to one or more concerns that if the holes are drilled prior to welding, that:

  1. The contraction and distortion of the material as it cools down from welding, might cause the hole-to-hole accuracy to be compromised, and
  2. The actual welding of the pre-drilled components might not be perfectly aligned, thus compromising the hole-to-hole accuracy

The Avenger and Avenger PLUS machines, by virtue of the static work-piece and moving processing column, allow fabricators to position and drill pre-welded structures on their machines.

This is not something that you can even consider on a typical multi-spindle drill line or coping robot.

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!

Ocean WOW’s customers at the 2013 Fabtech Tradeshow Chicago

The 2013 Fabtech trade show held in Chicago last week at the McCormack Center was a resounding success, not only for Ocean Machinery but for all the exhibitors. Not only was attendance high, but the fabricators in attendance were optimistic and in a buying mood. Several exhibitors sold all their machines off their booths, something that seldom happens.

Ocean too had a similar experience. Interest in the new Ocean Avenger PLUS CNC drill line was exceptional and Ocean is struggling to keep up with demand. The new Ocean Terminator DCM 1825 Dual COlumn Double Miter band saw drew lots of admirers looking for fast steel cutting of all steel profiles

And of course the world famous Oceanettes were on hand to add some glamour to the proceedings and their new outfits were a HUGE success.

Ocean Machinery's extensive booth captured the attention of fabricators each and every day!
