CNC turning department offers high volume bar fed turning as
as regular turning services with a capacity of up to 342mmØ and
610mm turning length with 1m bar feed, allowing us to turn
Feed CNC Turning:
We operate two Victor V-turn (342mmØ and
610mm turning length) 2 axis slant bed
CNC lathes with Fanuc OTC CNC controls fitted with 1m bar feed
systems and 700mm magazines. Whilst these machines are generally
suited to high throughput with fast cycle times and scope
for 24 hour unsupervised operation, they are equally well suited
to smaller batch work and are in constant use.
For general lower volume precision turning
we operate a Hardinge Talent 8/52 with 160mmØ and 500mm
turning length capacity with a 3-jaw power chuck . The Hardinge
also offers through-tool coolant and headwall coolant capability
as standard and can
water- or oil-base coolants as required.
have considerable experience with boring precision components
offering a full range of capabilities including steps, grooves,
gradients and internal large diameter thread cutting.
is selected to suit the material type and surface finish requirements
and is constantly inspected to ensure exacting dimensional
and surface tolerances. We source tool tips from a wide
range of suppliers to suit
of the components we machine are destined for bearing load
applications and require specific surface roughness tolerances
which are checked by the machine operator using a bench mounted
Surface Roughness instrument before going onto the next stage.
This can be a critical process for other applications such
as aluminium machining prior to anodising where the surface
finish of the anodised component will be degraded.
