Ficep: a partner for complete and integrated lines

THE “D&H WAY”
To be an integrated partner, D&H Steel Construction felt the need to equip itself with technologies that would guarantee not only high production standards but also great production flexibility.

A WIDE VARIETY OF FICEP PROFILE MACHINING SYSTEMS
Endeavour & Vanguard lines for beams drilling, milling, tapping, sawing. F504PSN & TIPO D4 lines for flats and angles punching, drilling, shearing and plasma cutting. RB1500 beams shotblasting system.

PEGASO CNC & STEEL PROJECTS PROGRAMMING SOFTWARE
The perfect combination between Ficep CNC and the Steel Projects programming software guarantees improved performance, substantially reduced cycle times, as well as the overall production management and optimization.

D&H Steel Construction has been working alongside New Zealand contractors since 1972 by supplying structural steel profiles; the company’s soul has been enriched by offering the industry a significant integrated service of planning and design of the steel structures that will then be built in its Auckland plant.

To best interpret this role as an integrated partner – THE “D&H WAY” – and support construction projects that are becoming more and more challenging, D&H Steel Construction felt the need to equip itself with technologies that would guarantee not only high production standards but also great production flexibility.

Technologies, therefore, capable of performing a wide range of machining operations on the processed profiles, guaranteeing precision quality and productivity.

To meet this need, D&H Steel Construction turned to Ficep precisely because of its characteristics as a supplier partner of complete and integrated lines, distinguished by high productivity, precision and quality of processing, versatility and, last but not least, reliability.

The partnership with D&H Steel Construction, began by sharing the customer’s needs to equip itself with technologies that could meet emerging trends in the New Zealand steel construction industry.

Over the years, the customer’s machine set up has been enriched with several Ficep profile machining systems. The Ficep beam line, a complete line for processing beams over the years has consisted of:

These technologies combined and integrated within a single configuration are managed and controlled by Pegaso, the Ficep CNC that provides improved performance and substantially reduced cycle times.

Pegaso comes with the innovative, easy-to-use, Office Technology Central offline programming software by Steel Projects, Ficep software house.

Endeavour model 1203DDB is the 3-spindle drilling system for processing the full range of structural steel and is integrated with the Katana band saw. A high-productivity integrated production line capable of such typical operations as straight or mitered cuts, mechanical drilling, flange thickness reduction, “rat-holes,” weld preparations, beam splitting, and more.

The two units intended for processing flats and angles F504PSNA and TIPO D4 are equipped with a 4-station punching unit. A marking unit allows part identification, which is functional for the subsequent assembly stages of the machined part. Steel structures are composed, in fact, of a very diverse series of components – connections, reinforcements, joint plates – that vary in thickness, width and shape.

Marking the part is therefore a machining operation that cannot be ignored, and the integration of Ficep punching systems with other machining operations is a much appreciated plus.
The versatility of F504PSNA and TIPO D4 meets all production requirements: they are combined with a unit for drilling, from a rotary shear for cutting, and a plasma head for thermal cutting.

The Vanguard 1003DZB model for drilling is integrated with the Katana band saw. This drilling machine has the advantage of the distinctive pluses of Ficep drilling machines, plus it has an advantageous price/performance ratio.

This model is extremely efficient but, at the same time, it is easy to operate, ensuring maximum reliability even in difficult working environments. The Vanguard features the same welded steel construction as other Ficep drilling machine models for maximum stability and rigidity: this important construction feature improves drilling performance.

The Katana saw with which the drilling machine is integrated is capable of making cuts up to an angle of 60° extremely fast and of high quality.

At the end of the line, the RB1500 shotblasting system guarantees very high performance for blasting steel profiles.

It is equipped with ETA-patented turbines that offer excellent performance in surface treatment and unbeatable durability thanks to hardened steel parts: higher productivity and longer maintenance intervals these are the features of the RB series blasting machines. Because of these features, this machine is particularly useful for integration into fully automatic production lines.
