The Enterprise is an automatic gantry style drilling line for large sections, particularly bridge sections. This features newly developed innovative laser probing technology for the processing of welded bridge girders and welded structures providing vastly increased productivity. The gantry can accomodate either long structures or multiple short parts with loading and unloading in masked time. This expansive processing window, with laser scanning technology, can eliminate the layout process and manual drilling in the fabrication of bridge girders that are frequently cambered or curved. The exceptional size capability also lends itself to process box girders, trusses, and large welded structures.

Used in the processing of steel bridge beams, structural steel sections, multi-axis gantry drills provide an automated process that eliminates manual lay-out of the section for drilling and fitting. Endeavour multi-axis machinery, which uses a three-spindle drill line for beams up to 4 meters deep, have become the process of choice for bridge section fabrication in most parts of the world.
The Ficep girder gantry drills feature a unique laser probing system with expansive software to achieve the capability to locate and measure the position of the girder and its surfaces. Once this information is determined the software shifts the various hole patterns and operations relative to the actual physical configuration of the girder and it orientation. The capabilities of this system permit the processing of the girder without trying to orient the part to a machine datum. In the case of the FICEP gantry drills the girder is placed anywhere within the working envelop and the laser probe, in conjunction with our software, locates the actual part to be processed.
