High-end manufacturing solutions for the aerospace engineering sector are provided by Bowmill Engineering from several factory units on the Nuffield Industrial Estate in Poole. In the finishing and assembly department, machined parts are deburred carefully using a variety of finishing practices. In April 2016, the company decided to augment these by installing a PDJ Vibro EVT-320 vibratory trough alongside its existing vibratory bowl machine, which was at full capacity.Read More
For around two years now Liebherr has been using single-, double-, and triple-ribbed CBN profile grinding discs - with great success. “Our users are very satisfied with the results”, reports Janus Siegfried, Head of Tool Production and Technology in the Ettlingen plant.Read More

Our introduction to MACH 2018.
03-Oct-2017 INDUSTRIAL TOOLING CORPORATION LTD
When a machinist with extensive motorsport expertise had ambitions of starting his own business, the first step was a 5-axis machining centre, high-end CAM software and cutting tools from Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC).Read More
PDJ Vibro presented the two sides of its business at Advanced Engineering UK. One is its new and used finishing machine sales activities and the other is its contract finishing service. Both are designed to make life simpler for manufacturers that want to minimise manual work and move towards automating the finishing process for health and safety reasons and to improve consistency.Read More

Peterborough subcontractor Westcombe Engineering has installed a new manufacturing cell to produce increased quantities of a family of aluminium engine components for Perkins Engines. It comprises a Haas ST-30 CNC lathe with short bar feeder, a Blast Wash top-loading washing machine and a vibratory bowl finishing machine from PDJ Vibro, the second to be installed in the factory.Read More
In Europe the series of publications «…for Dummies» sells like hot cakes. Not that buyers are considered as stupid, far from that …but it is a way to say that these books are addressed to consumers who do not know the subject. They aim to make people informed and efficient very simply. The new modular MVRL 160 vertical honing machine by Pemamo follows this trend and allows everyone to be able to master the micron scale simply and without prior knowledge.
Presented at the EMO, the first vertical machine by Pemamo was a great success. Indeed, for the first time since the foundation of the company it was possible to work with the proven technology of Pemamo (continuous expansion, adjustment to the tenth of a micron, reliability of machines and robustness of the processes) on a machine working vertically. Mr. Decker, responsible for sales, says: “The presentation of the MVRL 160 clearly opened new markets; our arrival on the market with this type of machine has been extremely well perceived by individuals and companies convinced by vertical honing”.Read More
SCHNEEBERGER adds a new talented grinding machine to his portfolio.
This time, downsizing was what the designers were after. The “new talent” was to be small and inexpensive, but also combined with the “genes” of its “big brothers”. It might be a slim 99 cm wide, but it’s no lightweight. The new product’s 1500kg weight gives it stability. With a total height of 1m 76cm, it has attractive proportions.
With the ariesNGP, access to 5-axis CNC tool grinding is not a compromise. The machine has all the ingredients needed for an outstanding grinding result. Stability, high-resolution axes, the latest generation of control unit, an efficient coolant circuit, high concentricity of the workpiece holders, a high-performance grinding spindle and grinding software that calculates the grinding paths very precisely to 13 decimal places.
The stability is achieved thanks to the robust spheroidal cast-iron monoblock design. This gives the machine kinematics the necessary internal strength. All axes can be equipped with ultra-precise measurement systems.Read More
ActOn offers a wide range of Abrasive Consumables for shot blasting and peening processes. Selecting the right blasting media is essential and depends upon the condition of the material before blasting and the finish required after blasting. To achieve the required finish, it is important to consider the blasting media type, shape, size, density, and hardness.Read More
UPGRADE INCREASES CAPACITY BY MORE THAN 40%.
Fladder Danmark A/S has improved the “heart” of the machines – the solid gear head.
40% increased capacity.
Due to modified embedding of the bearings and the change to cones with a play free bedding it offers the possibility to use our new dia. 400 mm abrasive cylinders.
It means more than 40% abrasive material (22 m²) compared to previous ones (16 m²).
The new ”heart” can be retrofitted into old machines.
The new technology fit into existing machines.
Even old machines can be upgraded to the latest technology at a reasonable cost.Read More
