Ficep was the first to engineer a CNC controlled horizontal single spindle drilling line to process flats and sections for the structural steel fabrication industry. The Excalibur and Victory are the most recent developments in the family of travelling column CNC drills where the part remains stationary. Thanks to its exclusive design the Excalibur and Victory represents an economically justifiable, versatile and productive solution for small to mid-size firms.

advantages
advantages
  • Excalibur/Victory only requires 50% of the floor space of a conventional beam drilling line
  • The cabin moves over the floor level without interfering with drill chips
  • The unique auxiliary axis on the spindle allows operations to be performed without moving the machine cabin, assuring high precision and long life with no stress to the linear guide
  • Remote diagnosis is possible through a network connection that allows our service team to perform routine checks
