If you want to minimize your maintenance costs while promoting the image of quality to your clients then the unmatched performance, reliability, lifespan and cost make the EHD the smartest solution.

EHD Plate Processing Machine EHD Plate Processing Machine




    Machine Design

    The machine carriage is an all welded construction with a heavy dual supporting beam and exceptionally robust modular side supports. To ensure ultra smooth operation the side supports run on fabricated rails with a machined billet running surface and vertically adjustable base plates which are adjusted on site to provide a ridged and finely tweaked level running surface. With a powerful state of the art digital AC dual drive system and integrated active rail cleaning system, the EHD will perform to the strictest of tolerances for decades to come in a highly demanding industrial environment.

    Machine Mass

    Large mass is crucial for high speed drilling. Plate profile machines such as the EHD are dynamic and process plate on a hollow cutting/drilling bed. This leads to what can be severe vibrations when drilling/machining. Therefore, the machine needs as much mass behind it in to ensure that the kinetic energy is transferred only to the right places. Fewer vibrations means faster drilling and better tool life!

Burny 10 Control

    Solid Cutting/Drilling Table

    The cutting/drilling table is as important as the machine on top of it. Our cutting/drilling tables are built just as tough as the EHD machine. They have several supports connecting the steel plate directly to the concrete floor. This is to minimize vibrations that are common with high speed drilling on profile machines.

    Ease of Operation

    Our state-of-the-art drilling HMI integrates seamlessly with the tried and trusted Burny 10 CNC. With pre-loaded drilling libraries, the operator doesn't require an in depth knowledge of drilling speeds and feeds. The HMI was designed to be extremely user friendly and as such can be mastered in literally seconds.


    High productivity is a crucial factor when investing in capital equipment such as profile cutting machines. The EHD achieves the highest productivity in its class thanks to its mass and a solid cutting/drilling table. The fastest cutting times and longest tool life are the key factors in achieving such high productivity.
