The latest in beam processing
FICEP Endeavour is a new three spindle drilling line for the processing of beams and shaped rolled sections with small and large dimensions. With the new innovations and the modular structure it is a significant step forward in beam processing. There are six different sizes available covering material sizes from 610mm x 305mm up to 2515mm x 1015mm.
The Endeavour is compact, essential, linear and veryhigh tech with its new Direct Drive motors. The power of the motor and the speed of positioning together with the new rack and pinion driving cinematics give a feeling of silence and speed under control never felt before. There are two working heights available for installation.
New auxiliary axes
The three spindles are optionally equipped with a new additional auxiliary axis that allows independent control of the spindle over a 250 mm stroke. By this method with the beam being stationary we can maximize the utilization of each spindle within the stroke. Whilst drilling on one side/flange it is possible to perform other operations that require an interpolation on one of the other sides of the beam being processed.
New innovations have been implemented in Endeavour design to increase the productivity.
- Faster drilling speeds at minimum cost with indexible tools
- New helical milling features (min-max diameter)
- New milling applications for copes
- Weld preparation possibility
- Faster scribing speed
- New universal tool holder
- Slotting in any direction
- Automatic detection of the profile size
- Processing of tapered beams
- Option for camber and unequal flanges

Drilling, milling and cutting with combined machines.
Endeavour can be easily coupled with band saws and coping robots to create very powerfull and flexible working units managed with one CNC control unit to cover e.g.:
- Straight or mitred cuts (+45/-60 degrees)
- plasma or oxy thermal cutting to automatically cut shapes such as coping or flange thinning, ratholes, weld prepping, splitting in the section.
