vertical CNC milling with 3 and 4 axis
capability. Our largest capacity vertical CNC mill offers
a working area of 1000mm x 500mm x 500mm with 2000mm specialist
beds on the extrusion machining mills.
majority of CNC milling
production is carried out of HAAS 4 axis machining centres
with working envelopes of 1000mm x 500mm x 500mm. This allows
us both scaleability and versatility, minimising downtime and
allowing operators to move from machine to machine with greater
range of other CNC mills are supported for more specialist
requirements such as large capacity machining up to 2m in length
for extrusion machining. The
Kira offers 2m beds which are used primarily
for machining of aluminium extrusions.
New For 2013
New for 2013 is the Haas VF-4SS high speed aluminium machining centre with 1,270 x 508 x 635mm xyz travels and a 12,000-rpm, 40-taper spindle providing superior surface finishes and extreme thermal stability ideal for high quality aluminium machining.
HAAS CNC Control:
Our HAAS CNC mills are each fitted with HAAS
CNC Control as well as being hard wired to the design centre.
The HAAS CNC Control offers advanced program editing, ISO standard
G-code compatibility, tool life management, tool load monitoring,
mid-program restart, self-diagnostics and graphic dry run features,
thus making it a versatile system for both offline programming
and operator control.
We pay particular attention to the tooling used. Tooling is
selected to suit material type regularly inspected by both
our highly experienced engineers as well as the inbuilt
machine control system. We source tool tips from a wide
range of suppliers to suit
ensure the reliability of our machines a continual program
of servicing is carried out with full machine inspection. Routine
maintenance as well as parts replacements are carried out proactively
to ensure maximum uptime and reduce lost production capability.
We employ a full time maintenance engineer and keep a significant
stock of spares to deal with unseen emergencies including servo
and motor replacements, bearing failures and pcb card issues.
Combined with managed redundancy we are ahead of the game and
able to keep production going around the clock and keep deliveries
