Cutting Machine Examples

Slate Trimming Machines
slate trimming

Automatic dresser for all four edges of mined slate. After splitting slate from blocks the edges are feathered to optimise rain run off on this special purpose slate trimming machine. 

These slates are fed onto a conveyor, which takes them through two adjustable dressing wheels. This dresses two sides of the slate when they are then rotated through 90 degrees and fed through another two wheels to form the other two sides to form a finished slate.

Manual dresser for all four edges of mined stone. After splitting stone from blocks the edges are feathered to optimise rain run off on a special purpose trimming machine. These stones are placed on the machine and one edge is dressed. The stone is rotated through 90 degrees where the next edge dressed. The trimming process is repeated until the stone is complete.

Automatic Welding Machines
Automatic welding machine

Automatic ladder welding machine which assembles rungs from hoppers and automatically welds them to the sides. Used to manufacture cable ladders, the rungs and sides are loaded to hoppers. They are then automatically assembled and fed through the welding head. The components are then welded together to form the finished product.

Drilling Machines for Unique Aplications
Multi spindle drilling machine

Automatic drilling machines for special aplications. This machine was made to drill multiple holes in an aftershave bottle cap. each drilling unit is mounted on a linear guide to facilitate quick changeovers or SMED. In conjunction with an indexing unit which is mounted behind the front plate, this machine drills 120 holes in seven seconds.

Special Purpose Drilling Machines
Automatic multi spindle drilling machine

Automatic special purpose drilling machines for unusual aplications. This aftershave bottle cap was drilled on a multiple head machine with an indexing spindle. Twenty specially designed drill heads were mounted radially around the component which in turn was mounted an a six position indexing spindle. It took just seven seconds for this machine to drill 120 small holes.

Bowling Ball Drilling Machine
Bowling wood automatic drilling machine

A machine to drill dimples or grips on crown green type bowls. These grips are said by some bowlers to give more control over the delivery of the bowl especially in adverse conditions. 

The machine consisted of two automatic feed drilling units and a servo controlled indexing system. The drilling units were specially modified to give accurate depth control because small variations in hole depth would result in unsightly imperfections in the appearance of the bowl. The servo controlled indexing system was supplied by TRM in Southport. This system utilises simple sequence programming giving the customer the flexibility to experiment with different hole patterns.

Tube Sawing & Drilling Machine
Automatic tube drilling sawing and notching machine

A special purpose machine to automatically drill and saw aluminium and steel tubes. This machine is fed from an 8 meter long magazine and holding up to 64 tubes.

It feeds the tube and rotates it to drill holes at different pitches and angles. It then saws the tube to length to finish the component.

Unlike many other sawing machines it will then separate the two tubes and drill in the gap to form two notches which are ideal for preparation of tube welding.

With other components it will simply drill multiple holes through the tube, rotating the tube when required to drill in different orientations.
