Steel Services has incorporated a robotic coping machine, a truly amazing addition to our automated system.

At Steel Services we believe in keeping abreast with technology always ensuring that we are better able to meet our clients' needs with more speed and accuracy.

The latest addition to our automated system is the Voortman V808 robotic coping machine, this machine is truly astounding to watch.

The Voortman V808 is the most versatile, market leading robotic thermal cutting machine with 8-axis.

The extreme flexibility of the robot in combination with the machine structure enables the machine to cut every 3D shape possible and mark all four sides of your material.

This system allows for enormous freedom to design and produce structures with the most complex connections and copes, but also at a significantly increased production speed.

The exact profile dimensions are actually measured by a robot, ensuring the fastest and most accurate result possible.


Powerful measuring and clamping system
The Voortman V808 is equipped with a powerful, fully automatic roller feed measuring and clamping system. This fully automatic measuring roller feed system is the fastest positioning system as it does not require a pusher or gripper to return home before loading the next piece saving hours each week.

Optical and disk profile measuring
A measuring disk which automatically moves to the correct height is installed at the clamping position for accurate length measuring. The front measurement is carried out by laser measurement fitted straight after the feeder roll and on the robot.

High cutting quality
The Voortman V808 robotic thermal cutting machine is programmed to always position itself as close to the top beam as possible, this again results in better cutting quality as well as extensive hole performance with its quality bolt hole cutting performance.

The Voortman V808 robotic thermal cutting machine can cut all sorts of structural steel beams without need for a drilling and a sawing machine.

  • Square tubes
  • Rectangular tubes
  • I-Beams
  • H-Beams
  • Channels
  • Flat bar
  • Angle iron

Another big advantage of this high level of automation is that the Voortman V808 can handle all four sides which will save time and costs in the workshop assembly area. The multi system integration of the Voortman has given us even more capacity.

We welcome any of our clients who would like to view our latest innovation, the Voortman V808.
