When C Dugard received an Internet enquiry at midday from a new customer for a vertical machining centre, within an hour the sales manager responsible for the West London area had made arrangements for the customer and a colleague, who was in the UK to source machines, to visit the Hove showroom to view a machine an hour and half later.
A new turn-mill centre from the Dugard Eagle range has the specification to perform heavy duty cycles including off-centre machining due to the rigidity of the 12-station turret arrangement that is able to provide + 55 mm Y-axis travel and rapid traverse of 10 m/min. In addition, this machine has the added flexibility of a programmable tailstock with through coolant feed that is capable of heavy duty drilling cycles.
A demonstration of five-sided machining using simultaneous five-axis tool positioning and the combination of multiple operations into a single cycle will take centre stage on the C Dugard of Hove stand at EMO 2007 in Hannover.
Among the wide range of components produced at Towncross Engineering are parts for the home assembly models of electro-magnetic engines that work on 3 to 6 volt battery power. The models replicate original working engines developed between 1836 and 1860 to mimic steam engine technology but instead of coal, used the recently discovered phenomenon of electricity as the power source.
Typical of the C. Dugard capability to provide a basic high performance machine tool with a list of options to enable customers to create a specification ideal for their requirements is the latest Dugard Eagle 1300 vertical machining centre. This new machine provides options of Fanuc, Siemens or Heidenhain control systems, a range of spindle powers and speeds, a selection of tool magazines and the ability to easily integrate an additional fourth axis. Also available to customers is a choice of swarf handling systems and a selection of operator enhancements.
Burgess Hill-based subcontractor Treworrick Engineering has placed an order for six new machine tools from C Dugard of Hove that will complete the rejuvenation of the company s machine shop to make it one of the enviable manufacturing facilities in southern England.
