Retrofit / Upgrade Memory Sticks and Flash Cards for Anilam Controls

For customers with Anilam controls:
We can now update most older controls to read and write to Compact Flash Cards.  We can even set the system to boot from these and eliminate the hard disk drives.   Costs, installed, less than $ 500.  In some areas travel costs will be extra. 

And now we can upgrade the floppy disk drive to a USB thumb drive.  Call Jeremy or Geoff

Chenlong bandsaw logo We will be getting stock in soon from the Chenlong bandsaw manufacturers.  These saws are mostly patterned after the Amada machines and are available in a wide range of manual, semi-automatic, CNC and vertical (plate) saws with huge capacity up to 20' cut length


Coated Davis Keyseater Cutters for tough alloys
:
Keyway cutters can now be ordered with titanium coating to greatly enhance tool life when cutting real tough alloys like high chrome stainless etc


It has been several years since we have offered Strands drill presses.  Once again we will have these beautiful Swedish made drills available. We can offer Strands and Solberga machines.  We have parts in stock for Strands, Solberga and Arboga and can supply parts for IMA and Nider machines, that have many parts in common..   Details


The TopOne mills are patterned after the
Niigata heavy duty milling machines made in Japan some time ago, having the head mounted on a vertically travelling column.   The table has only X and Y travels and can take 800 Kg loads
These machines also have a HURON type head.  Details


We are once again stocking vertical bandsaws and blade welders made by Fuho in Taiwan.  Customers have been requesting an alternative to the Grob saws.  We sold many Fuho saws about 10 years ago.  Details


Topwell has started production of a new series of Travelling Column Vertical machining centers.
These massive machines have travels of 2200mm x 620mm    AND   3200mm x 720mm Details


We have developed a new drive for our Topwell mills and replacement heads with the electronic variable speed drives so they can run directly off 600/3/60 WITHOUT the need for a 220 V to 600 V transformer.   The price of the machines has come down and the cost of installation, without the transformers also goes down. 


Acu-rite 300S logo
Acu-Rite has released a new digital readout for lathes that will provide digital assist to thread cutting.  The new system will be especially useful on cross-over inch/metric machines.  The readout will provide a signal when to engage the half nuts to synchronize cutting of metric threads on an inch lathe or for cutting inch threads on a metric machine - avoiding the need to keep the half nuts engaged and the risk of over-extending the thread.   Details.

Topwell introduces a huge new bed type CNC mill with a quill head.  This machine was developed to specifically to machine the compressor casing of the Rolls Royce Trent series of jet turbines for the airbus. For this application the machine is fitted with a riser block and a tilting rotary table giving 65" capacity under the spindle  DETAILS

Topwell has just announced a new linear way machining center with 40" x 21" travels.  This model will be available with standard ball bearing linear ways or the new roller bearing linear ways.  These new roller bearing linear ways are about 30% more rigid.

Davis Keyseater has announced that they will only offer cutters in 24" and 30" lengths in the AFS staggered tooth styles.  These are the cutters with full width teeth and over these very long lengths the pressure on each tooth was too low to get good cutting performance.  The AFS cutters will still be offered because they perform better on the long lengths. The AFS staggered tooth cutters have alternating teeth that are about 55% of the cutter width, thereby increasing the pressure per tooth.

Jan / 06 - SpiderCool Programmable Coolant Nozzle Systems: RETROFITABLE to most machining centers !
One of the problems many CNC machine have is getting coolant aimed accurately at the cutting zone when the machine goes through tool changes and actual position of the cutting zone moves. The Spidercool Programmable Coolant Nozzle system is a solution that can be retrofitted to almost any horizontal or vertical machining center.  The system goes a long way to allowing unattended machining, will improve tool life by getting coolant where it is needed, will speed up machining because the operator will not have to re-aim the nozzles manually ( in some shops safety concerns dictate that machining stop to re-aim the coolant), better surface finish because chips are flushed better. 
Kit costs are about $ 3,500 Cdn.,
Simple installations on carousel type tool changer machines take about a day. 
Standard systems have memory for 99 tools.  Larger memory registers are available for machines with large tool changers.

We have had a long and successful relationship with the people producing the Semi-Power Vector Drives but the time has come to move to a different supplier. We have changed over to Yaskawa technology for our replacement milling heads, manual GL mills, CNC lathes and most of our CNC mills and machining centers. Only those with the Anilam 6000 system will not have the Yaskawa. It has taken several months of close cooperation with Yaskawa to get all the systems performing well and everything is on track now. We still have some limited stock of Semi-Power drives. Production of everything above 5 Hp was stopped at Semi-Power so when our stock and factory parts are exhausted, we will have to convert machines in the field to Yaskawa.

We are pleased to advise that we have re-established our relationships under the new management at Geminis in Spain. HH Roberts started selling Geminis lathes back in January 1968 and placed many machines into service across Canada. They ranged from 26" swing upwards to a large one put into Collingwood Shipyards at 84" swing and 40 feet between centers.   Many special large spindle bore machines went into service in western Canada but the most remarkable one is working on the east coast, with a 20" spindle bore!  We will be posting a page on these real soon.

We are pleased to advise that we will be taking on a supply of spare parts for SEM servo motors, direct from SEM,  to be able to provide better in house service for the thousands of users of SEM servo motors on our machines and others.

After a visit to Chicago IMTS with our long time mill suppliers, Topwell, we have started development of a true competitive model to the Haas Mini-Mill. The target machine will have 16" x 14" x 14" travels with 18". It will have linear slideways and rapid traverse rates of 1,400 IPM, and a 12 station automatic tool changer. It will be all cast Meehanite construction.  We expect the first machine frames will start to come this way around the end of the year.

we have installed the first of our Horizontal Vertical machining centers in Gaspe, Que with the new Heidenhain TNC 530i high speed control.

May / 04

we introduced our new higher speed machining centers with the new Anilam 6300 CNC ( really a Heidenhain control with an Anilam logo and Anilam user interface) at the Montreal machinery exhibition and ran the famous Mercedes Benz test part at 350 IPM contouring.
