Special Purpose Machine Tools !! NO longer available !!

Bespoke designs cover various customer requirements from simple machine enhancements such as new spindles, toolchangers to multi axis machine for production or research requirements

The remit is often to provide machines to suit a particular need based on modular proven machine elements.Typically examining the customer problem and providing a cost effective design solution normally including ,methodology with an outline design, build costs and delivery schedule.

For example: Production design & manufacture Simultaneous machining the end spigots of a AC induction motor with stator winding already inserted Solution economical 2+2, 5 axis lathe complete with mandrill part holding

Special Purpose CNC Machine Build

Another example: Research Machine for UK defence Industry The requirement was to conduct work on spherical components which are initially digitised. A solution could have been adapted using a 2 axis tilt and rotary table however when this technique is applied the tilt axis moves away from the centre line making it difficult to translate the co-ordinated data. Result from digitising is prone to errors as moves are not normal to component/probing machine plane.

A solution to the problem was achieved by designing the sector swing in the vertical plane using a radial linear guideway arrangement. The guideway supported a carriage with vertical ballscrew travel coupled to a fanuc servo. The component was mounted onto a rotary table beneath the carriage enabling orthogonal axis control of a sphere through axes Z (vertical plane),C (radial tilt) and B rotary. A typical pennine design & build project.
