Design and Build.

These machines are ruggedly constructed from meehanite castings, well proportioned ensuring perfect rigidity. The distance from the spindle to the table and base is such as to allow large components to be drilled without difficulty.

Our machines, with the exception of the AJ25 and AJ30, are fitted as standard with an automatic feed mechanism which is graduated and can be preset to the desired depth. (Feed optional of AJ25 & AJ30).

Gear Box.

To drive our machines the gears are hardened, ground and shaved. Manufactured from the highest quality nickel chrome steel. Shafts are splined, ground and made to tight tolerances to ensure perfect alignment. This gives smooth operation and running. So to keep all the gears well lubricated an automatic pressure oil pump is fitted inside the gearbox.

To make things easy automatic drill ejectors and coolant equipment is fitted as standard (coolant optional on AJ25 and AJ30).

So for ease of operation, all machines incorporate a rack attached to the column thereby enabling the table to be positioned and locked in the required position.

This is only part of our range which includes, bench and pedestal drills, pillar drills, multi heads, multi spindle and auto cycle tapping machines.
