With over 8% of revenue earmarked for Research & Development every year, Vernet Behringer invests continuously to remain at the leading edge of machine technology.

Our engineers were at the forefront of digital control lines in the 1970s, then fast drilling machines in the 2000s. They continue to innovate with the ongoing objective of improving productivity in your production workshops by increasing machining cycle times and reducing manual operations and handling.
The R&D team is assisted internally by the Mechanical, Automation and Information design offices, to deploy and industrialise new developments as rapidly as possible.


All Vernet Behringer machines can be fully automated to minimise and even eliminate operator interventions, through a full range of parts storage systems, loading/unloading and smart part sorting, combined with dedicated software modules that can interface with supervision software and/or client ERP systems.


Exclusive scribing system using a fixed carbide point with a compensation spring clamped against the part.
Engraves forms to mark weld points, can also be used to mark profiles, tubes and plates; offers fast and deep marking that is easy to read after shot-blasting, painting and galvanisation.
Available on all Vernet Behringer machines with a drilling function.

Carbide drilling

In parallel to the tried and tested punching technology that Vernet Behringer has perfected over the last 130 years, we were pioneers in the design of fast carbide drilling machines for profiles and plates.
Today, the whole range of machines enables economic industrial use of carbide drill bits and burrs at high machining speeds, through the use of ultra-rigid frames, rigorously selected high-performance tools and motor technologies that offer high rotation speeds and torque, all while optimising power consumption.
