AJHB Horizontal Borer Machines
Ajax range of Horizontal Borer Machines bring back the tradition of using a horizontal borer to machine many different aspects of any job with milling , drilling, boring & facing big & small work pieces.
Features include powered rotary table, power drawbar, power feed & rapids to all axis, DRO options, optional tail stock, pendant control, telescopic slideway covers, power clamping, automatic lube, pre-select speed changes along with heavy duty construction.
Suitable for all types of valves blocks and any multi sided machining job the horizontal borer makes it easier with less setting up and more machining.
Tailstock for line boring, boring bars, Newall DRO systems.
These machines can be used for milling, drilling & boring. Some workpieces can be set up once, bored and milled on all 4 sides using the powered rotary table, which is a quicker operation. Drilling applications can be done easily using the quill before boring. So this gives more accuracy and ease of use.
Our tailstocks can be used for line boring, like the big end bearings of an engine keeping them all in line.
All headstocks have a counterbalance weight to give lightweight operation of the vertical travel of the head when unclamped.
Our gearboxes are all pre select, so you can dial in your next speed and feed then press a button on the pendant to operate speed feed change. Also they are all running in oil baths and are fully lubricated.
Gears and Slides
Because machines gears are hardened & ground it gives quieter smoother operation and give better longevity.
With the slides & screws on the machine are automatically lubricated to give stable machining and longevity to the life of the machine.
All of the Axis are driven from electromagnetic clutches selected from the control panel. So the axis can be hand operated to fine position and have hydraulic clamps to give solid stable machining on all redundant axis. Any active axis is automatically unclamped when it is selected for feeding by hand or auto feed.
Our horizontal sliding surfaces are covered by steel guards to protect from swarf damage, plus they are hardened & ground with turcite anti friction material running against them.
The base casting has multi levelling & bolting down points to give even more stability to keep accuracy.
