John Jones in New Zealand crushes it with two Ocean Avenger CNC Drill Lines

Ocean Machinery is really proud to have several fabricators that have more than one Avenger / Avenger PLUS in their fabricating facilities, and very proud to have two Ocean Avenger CNC Beam Lines installed at John Jones, one of the largest fabricators in New Zealand. You will find an Avenger in each of their facilities located in Hornby and Timaru.

Both drill lines are inline with bandsaws, and handle a wide variety of drilling activities, ranging from standard Beams, Channel, Angle and unusually large Square Tube Sections, as seen in the pictures below:

After the earthquake in Christchurch New Zealand, new constructions standards were enforced, and some of these changes necessitated some unusual profiles that had to be drilled. Hear Impact Machinery’s Darren Harmsworth watches the Ocean Avenger drill a 600mm square tube (23.6”), a profile that just cannot be done on traditional pass-through drill lines.
