Massive lathe will turn on the juice

The Boro Foundry has invested £350,000 in a new full CNC Tuscan lathe with a massive 8m between centres and a 950mm swing. The machine will allow Boro to take on new work such as large shafts for power stations and steel plants.

The Tuscan LL950 supplied by Axe & Status (01908 647707) is of an evolutionary five bed way design which overcomes interference between the carriage and steady rest when turning long shafts or hollow tubes. The LL950 is available in sizes from 4m to 8m.

Boro Foundry says that it has already received orders commissioned on the back of this investment.

The foundry, based in Lye, Stourbridge, combines a large on-site subcontract machining facility with the ability to produce castings up to 8 tonnes in iron, steel, stainless and iron alloys – including special customer specific materials as well as standard ranges.

It can also offer full 3D modeling and reverse engineering. A large amount of its business is for power generation, renewables and heavy engineering, while it also manufactures a range of street furniture. It has been involved in a variety of restoration projects, including St Pancras International Station, where it manufactured all the internal and external cast iron drainage.

The Boro Foundry is exhibiting at Subcon 2009, from 9 to 11 June at the NEC, on Stand 101.
