The Ocean Avenger Single Spindle Universal Beam Line

Supplier: Headland

The Ocean Avenger Beam Drill Line is designed for small to medium size steel fabricators desiring to increase profitability.


The Avenger completely eliminates time-consuming manual beam layout and hole drilling, formerly done by mag drills and/or hydraulic punches.

The Ocean Avenger’s unique space saving design conserves valuable floor space and will increase monthly production by up to 350 tons-per-month with a single operator on an eight-hour shift. Its versatile design allows processing profiles including Beams, Angle, Channel, Square and Round Pipe and Tube, as well as Base Plates.

The Avenger Beam Drill will completely change the profitability of your operation by:

•    Decreasing labor costs – eliminates manual layout and hole drilling.
•    Increasing fabrication capabilities – process faster and with less human labor.
•    Lowering cost-per-hole drilling – by up to 30 cents/hole – 15,000-20,000 holes/bit.
•    Providing competitive advantages – bid more jobs lower, process larger profiles.

This American made drilling machine has been especially designed for the structural steel fabricator to eliminate costly layout and manual drilling procedures and to fabricate larger profiles in less time.  By expediting processing times through elimination of human labor, fabricators achieve greater profits while greatly increasing their tonnage-per-month and tonnage-per-employee outputs.

The Ocean Avenger can be installed in any structural steel fabrication shop or other operations where layout and drilling is required.

It is capable of drilling most steel profiles including:

•    Beams up to 40? high (rolled or fabricated)
•    Angles, channels and T sections
•    Flat bars
•    Plates up to 40? wide
•    Girders
•    Tapered beams or other unequal sections
•    Tubes
•    Rails
•    Truck frames, rail car frames, etc.

Main Characteristics of the Ocean AVENGER:

•    Eliminates manual layout and drilling
•    Provides exceptional accuracy of hole placement, eliminating costly field modifications
•    Easy installation in one-half the floor space required by regular beam lines
•    Simple and easy to operate
•    No computer experience required
•    Fully automatic drilling cycle

The production output depends on the size and thickness of the profiles, as well as density of the holes and hole diameter.  Under typical operating conditions, output usually varies from 160-220 holes per hour.

This corresponds to approximately 350-400 tons of structural steel per month, in an eight-hour shift, using one operator, depending upon the types of profiles processed and the level of operator expertise.
