The principal profiles that can be processed by the Drillflex are flat bars, sections and square/rectangular hollow sections. The correct hole pattern is easily programmed thanks to the CNC control system.
The machine accepts workpieces that have been sawed or milled to the correct length beforehand, but the workpiece can also be dimensioned after the drill pattern has been realized. You can choose the most interesting option depending on your specific production situation.

In search of productivity growth Sermeca started with market research in order to find a machine with better performances and of which tools didn't had to be exchanged.
"At the demonstration of the Drillflex by Haco in Belgium, our first impression was seeing a mechanical machine, much more than a typical drill machine with solid carbide drills and exchangeable tipped drills. We wanted to leave the generation of traditional drill machines", Claude Buhnemann, CEO of Sermeca remarks.
Keep delivery times short, drill very fast
"With the Drillflex we can keep delivery times short which is an advantage. Our added value isn't debiting tons of steel per month. We need to drill very fast, for example elongated holes. Traditionally this kind of operations forced us to do the job on another post. Today, with the Drillflex of Haco Mubea, this kind of operation is greatly simplified while we avoid handling with different tools in the workplace. Besides, the holes often have a different diameter on the same piece. The Drillflex is capable of drilling up to a diameter of 40 millimeters over the entire length without us having to change tools con-stantly."
Milling next to drilling
“The unique part of the Drillflex is that next to drilling, milling is possible too. Multiple types of holes can be milled, what makes the Drillflex a unique price/quality machine. At the level of drilling, it has changed the way of working. The old drill line didn't drill continuously over a series of alternate holes (e.g. diameter 12, then 14, then 16, then 12, ...). At each hole we had to change tools, while other holes with the same diameter had to be realized further on the beam. All this is no longer the case with the new Haco Mubea Drillflex."
"You could easily say that, overall, the acquisition of The Drillflex has allowed us to increase productivity by about 30%"
The sections than can be processed are:
The section volume of the profiles has a minimum and maximum value, both horizontally and vertically, of respectively 30 en 1100 mm.
The basic, standard model features a working length of 12.200 mm (40 Ft).
Other possible working lengths are :
A) Profile dimensions
All profiles or working pieces with a section of max. 1100 x 1100 mm and min. 30 x 30 mm can be processed.
= Max. working length 12.200 mm (40 Ft)
The portal features three 3 CNC axes :
