Steve Gear, President of Bradken’s Energy
Business said that Bradken’s London foundry
had positioned itself as a top supplier of
patterns, high integrity ferrous castings and
machined components by continuously investing
in equipment and technology in order to provide
the best service, quality and value to its
customers.
“Our customers are increasingly interested in
finished components, and the addition of the
WFL M150 Mill Turn Machine greatly improves
our ability to meet their specific challenges head
on while simultaneously differentiating the
London facility’s capabilities from other
competitors in the market,” Steve said.
IN JANUARY 2015 Bradken’s London, Ontario
(Canada) facility completed the installation of
the newest and most technologically advanced
machine in the Bradken arsenal to date.
The WFL M150 Mill Turn machine tool is a multi-
process machine which does the job of a
number of important shop floor machines all in
one. Combining a lathe, 5-axis machine center,
and 3D coordinate measuring machine it can
perform a number of functions including:
• Turning
• Milling
• Boring
• OD Gear Cutting
• Internal & External Spline Cutting
• Deep Hold Drilling, Boring
& Reaming
• Angled & Contour Milling
• Eccentric Milling
• Grinding
• 9-Axis, 3-Dimensional Milling
• Quality Inspection
BRADKEN CONSTANTLY DRIVES TOWARDS AND IS DETERMINED
TO BE AT THE FOREFRONT OF TECHNOLOGY IN THEIR FOUNDRIES
AND MACHINE SHOPS ACROSS THE GLOBE.
CONSISTENT WITH THIS
VISION, THE COMPANY’S ENERGY BUSINESS HAS INVESTED IN AN
INGENIOUS PIECE OF MACHINING EQUIPMENT THAT IS SET TO
DELIVER BIG BENEFITS FOR CUSTOMERS.
