A UK manufacturer of electro-mechanical motion control systems, LG Motion, has updated its in-house machining capability with the arrival of three machines from XYZ Machine Tools.
The investment includes two SMX 3500 ProtoTrak bed mills, which have been brought in to replace two older machines. The nature of the work is generally small batches and bespoke systems, so quick changeover is very important. Moreover, with their increased spindle-speed capability and ISO 40 taper connection, the bed mills are improving cycle times and component quality. A third machine, a ProTurn SLX 425 lathe will also target productivity improvements.
