A PSC apprentice, running the boring mill
, used Geopath to program a rock crusher component.
The K Series of horizontal boring mills
now offers a Twin Table option.
He should know, having recently completed a rebuild of a large 1952 Giddings & Lewis boring mill
for use in his own job shop, which specializes in precision machining and tool rebuilding.
The Union company in eastern Germany dates back to 1852 and built its first boring mill
Shop equipment consists of a boring mill
, several milling machines, lathes, grinders, EDM machines, pantographs, three-dimensional milling, full contouring NC milling units, and a horizontal and vertical milling center with NC/CNC and four-axis capabilities.
Giddings & Lewis will exhibit its PC 50 boring mill
and its lineup of horizontal machining centers with multiple pallet storage systems.
The M-HTl3 horizontal table-type boring mill
with 4" bar is one in a series of machines designed for precision milling in small and large shops.
In its booth it was displaying for the first time a Puma 400 AW CNC lathe for turning aluminum wheels, a Mynx 500 machining center to go after the low end of the market, the H 500 P with linear ways aimed at the mold market, and a giant bridge-type boring mill
If an engine block is to be machined on a boring mill
capable of boring a series of holes to [+ or -]0.001 [inches] on center, our fixture will hold the part in a manner that ensures that accuracy."
Previous processing of compressor shrouds involved machining on a manual vertical boring mill
and on a horizontal machining center.
This precision design moves work to and from the spindle like a horizontal boring mill
, eliminating column movement during critical machining operations on bores.
