New circular sawing machine significantly speeds up deliveries

New circular sawing machine significantly speeds up deliveries
Back in November 2017 it was a change in the right direction for the UK’s largest independent steel stockholder, Barrett Steel Group as it installed a KASTOvariospeed C15 automatic circular sawing machine alongside two bandsaws at its engineering division in Maghaberry, Northern Ireland. It has increased sawing productivity, reduced delivery lead-times significantly, improved accuracy and lowered cost per cut.

Industry 4.0-enabled bar feeding

Industry 4.0-enabled bar feeding
The first was wireless data communication from an Iemca barfeed, allowing much more information to be transmitted compared with a hard wired connection. Andrea Psotti, Iemca’s Area Sales Manager assists 1st MTA in looking after the UK sales market, and explained that the solution is unlike those offered by others in that it allows the customer to integrate the equipment more conveniently. Instead of having to be connected into a factory’s intranet to achieve wireless data flow, the Iemca barfeed and lathe communicate via the cloud.

Over 140 digitisers used in machine protection systems

Over 140 digitisers used in machine protection systems
Over 140 digitiser cards from Spectrum Instrumentation are being used in the machine protection systems of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. The cards are used to check that the particle beams have been accurately deflected. Incredible precision is required for this as two high-energy particle beams travel at close to the speed of light in opposite directions in the 27km LHC accelerator ring. They are then made to collide at four locations around the ring for runs of several hours.

Its essential to be safe as well as efficient

Its essential to be safe as well as efficient
The latest safe-lock pull out protection system is becoming industry standard, HAIMER the company behind the product claim. The HAIMER Safe-Lock pull out protection system ensures safe cutting tool clamping. Special drive keys in the tool holder perfectly match the spiral shaped grooves on the cutting tool shank, thus creating frictional clamping forces and a positive locking form-fit. This effectively prevents the cutting tool from pulling out of the tool holder. Furthermore, it increases the productivity through faster permissible speeds and increased tool life.

Light work made of heavyweight applications

Light work made of heavyweight applications
Not long after the delivery of a Harrison Alpha 1550XS CNC lathe, during summer 2017, Fairbrother and Grimshaw saw its growing reputation spread even further, resulting in an upturn in orders, utilising the Alpha lathes versatility for taking on larger capacity mill/turn jobs. Fairbrother and Grimshaw are a Lancashire sub-contract engineering business who specialise in CNC milling, turning and boring, from their facility in the Cherry Tree area of Blackburn.
