lathes. These were eventually modified and the company
gained international recognition for its bicycle hub and
piston finishing lathes. Bardons & Oliver continued
to grow and evolve with the industry, developing the first
large capacity cut-off lathes for the pipe and tube industry.

became a significant part of the company’s business
in the 1950’s and continues to be an important market
for Bardons & Oliver today. In the late 1960's Bardons & Oliver
introduced automatic turret lathes that featured complete
fluidic control of a standard machine tool for the first
time in history. Special large capacity CNC turning machines
were developed in the 1980's.
