Veralum Engineering buys two Ajax VMCs

Added to MTDCNC by Ajax on 16 August 2014

Working with the MoD, aerospace, rail, motorsport and gauge making industries, Veralum Engineering has witnessed considerable growth over the last couple of years. To provide capacity to support this growth, Luton based Veralum has just purchased two Ajax V700 machining centres.

When specifying his machining centres, Veralum’s Managing Director Mr Len Cooper says: 'What we liked about the Ajax machines is that they have a high specification built-in as standard, so there are no escalating costs for the ‘add-ons’. For example, our two new additions have been supplied with spindle cooling and oil skimmers for retaining the quality of our coolant as standard. With most manufacturers these features would be optional add-ons.'

Commenting upon the machines, Mr Cooper continues: 'We wanted productive and robust machines that would suit our workload and the small to medium dimensions of our components. The Ajax V700 fits this bill perfectly. Additionally, we wanted a machine with the Haindenhain control unit, as all our machines use Haidenhain CNC controls.'

With the powerful Haidenhain 620 CNC, the shop-floor staff took to the new VMC’s with ease. Furthermore, the control provides complete compatability between the other machine tools at Veralum.

Despite being a powerful and productive machine tool, which is highlighted by the 48m/min rapids on the Ajax V700 Series, Veralum has almost filled the capacity of its new machines already and further expansion is on the horizon. As Mr Cooper states: 'We have the two Ajax V700 machines running flat out every day, machining everything from  plastic through to stainless 316 and even tungsten for our customer base. The compact machines sit side by side and our continued growth ensures they are running for as many hours as possible. Thankfully, the service provided by Ajax is outstanding, so we can run our machines in confidence. We know that if any issues arise, we will have an Ajax engineer on-site the same day to maximise our machine uptime.'
