Versteel Manufacturing Process
The section 001 team toured the Versteel facility and learned about the tube laser, tube bender, press break, robotic welder, sheet metal laser, and the cold saw to be able to translate the used of the process into new and innovative furniture designs.
The tube laser is one of Versteell’s most unique and significant pieces of machinery. A large percentage of the joinery that goes into making their furniture frames starts here. This multi-axis tool can be used to cut steel pipe on any side in any orientation.
The tube bender is a common compliment to the tube laser at Versteel. This machine can precisely bend round tubing in a large variety of angles. Square tubing must be cut on the cold saw and welded together to achieve an angle.
The robotic welder touches a huge percentage of the furniture that gets sent out of Versteel’s doors. This machine is the perfect compliment to a talented welding team as it is completely precise and can work very quickly.
