Bardons & Oliver is currently building a machine tool specifically for the hydraulic and pneumatic cylinder market. One of our many customers producing hydraulic cylinders purchased a B&O 2SC-850 fully automated CNC Machining System. The machines highlights include a FANUC CNC Control, a Renishaw probe system, live tooling with thru-tool coolant, and large capacity thru bore (8.50” diameter). The spindle system boasts 1,600 maximum rpm and 50 max horsepower spindle motor.
The TEP machine was originally designed to meet the needs of boilermakers, by providing functionality for boiler tube processing. We began producing turning systems for this use in the 1960s. Bardons & Oliver has done installations of boiler tube systems in factories around the world. Of late, this has been especially significant in India’s power generation sector, which is growing thanks to an expanded demand for electricity — expected to cross 950,000 mW by 2030.
Bardons & Oliver is excited to announce our newest addition to the Rotating Head Series Cut-off Systems. B&O’s RH450HP Rotating Head Cut-off Lathe is a completely new machine built for small, lightweight, extremely FAST tube processing. Designed specifically for thin wall tubing ranging from .028” (.71mm) to .312” (7.94mm) wall thickness, tubing diameters from .750” (19.05mm) up to 4.500” (114.3mm) diameter. Our integrated material handling system includes a fully automatic raw material bundler/unscrambler loading table. Cycle times ranging from 6 to 8 seconds part to part. With full wrap work holding, the machine will not deform tubing, providing clean cutoff parts with nearly zero kerf by utilizing 3mm cut-off blades to minimize material loss.
Bardons & Oliver had an article published in the September 2015 edition of Tube & Pipe Technology about the #316 automatic cutoff lathe we built for a customer.
