LMS opt for Thame Workholding

LMS opt for Thame Workholding

Added to MTDCNC by MTDCNC on 03 September 2012

With over 25 years experience in the metal cutting industry, LMS Precision is a highly respected family owned CNC subcontract business based in Droitwich. 

Producing and supplying precision-machined components to a wide range of companies, LMS Precision pride themselves on their quality and cost effectiveness and serve a diverse range of industries. 
As a forward thinking successful business they are always looking for ways to reduce their cycle time and improve existing methods. With this in mind they recently contacted Thame Workholding with a view to purchasing a cost effective ‘Zero’ point system, which would also provide a way of improving the way they hold material to be machined. 
Thame recommended the Lang Zero point and the Lang 5 axis vice to LMS Precision. Some of the key benefits of the Zero point system for LMS is that it can be used on their multi pallet horizontal machining centre, vertical machining centre, 4th axis or CMM. 
Managing Director Roger Street said, “We have been looking to improve our work holding for quite some time and looked at many different options. We decided on the Lang systems from Thame Workholding because of the unique features, repeatability and its cost effectiveness. Also when combined with the Lang 5 axis vices and the Lang Grip-Fix stamping unit it allows us to machine 5 sides of a component holding on just 3mm in a wide range of material including high strength steels. We can also remove it from the vice to measure and put it back and repeat within 3 microns”.
Many of LMS Precision’s customers are from Blue-chip aerospace companies and as a result demand tight tolerances on the work piece. The exceptional secure holding for high performance milling provided by the Lang Grip-fix workholding system is therefore an essential requirement for LMS.  
By investing in such high quality products from Thame Workholding, LMS has remained competitive in the face of overseas competition and continues to deliver a quality service on time and to exceptional standards.
