This machine replaces the very first machine purchased in 2001, which was part exchanged.

Celebrating 50 Years in Business!

WE HAVE INSTALLED A FURTHER STAR SR 10 J MACHINE.

Due to demand from our customers for the smaller sizes we purchased a new Star SR10J from Star Micronics.

Having purchased the first of this type of machine, off the stand at the Mach exhibition at the N.E.C in 2006, the company decided to double up with this new very quick machine.

A brand new Citizen L20 VIII, 8 axis CNC lathe was installed this month. This machine compliments the exsisting Star machines.

The machine is fitted with high pressure/chilled coolant for assistance with swarf control particularly when machining difficult material

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

June 2006

We are proud to announce the purchase of a brand new Star SR10 from the Star Micronics Stand at MACH 2006.

The machine has a maximum bar capacity of 10mm, and has 35 metre rapids to ensure tools get to the cutting positions as quickly as possible. This new purchase compliments our exsisting 2- 20mm diameter machines and the 32mm capacity machine.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

April 2005

Our new state-of-the-art Swiss-type sliding head automatic CNC lathe is now fully operational. The bar-feed has been laser-aligned, the necessary filters installed, the viewing panel replaced in order to cope with the high pressure coolant system installed, and all the necessary tooling has been installed and tested.  Vaughan Jones' engineers have also completed their extensive training on the new machine, and the first turned parts are due to be produced on the machine by April 15th. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

March 2005

Our new swiss-type lathe has been delivered and will be up and running in April.  Managing Director Jeremy Hornby said, “The purchase of this machine is to help Vaughan Jones build on its long history of producing quality specialised fasteners, quickly and to the high standards our customers expect. With the new machine comes the ability to manufacture new turned parts, which will benefit many of our existing customers, as well as helping us to attract new ones.”

 

The new machine is able to produce even more specialist parts Parts with internal threads, off-centre hole drilling, parts with angled holes, and parts that require drilling on the end face are now possible. Several features on the new machine, such as offset tool-setting and balanced turning, will enable the company to increase its capability whilst maintaining its reputation for quality.

 

January 2005

We have ordered our 3rd New machine from Star Micronics UK for delivery in March 2005. The 32mm capacity machine increases the size we can handle on these multi-function mill/turn machines with the new machine having a capabilty of 80 tools for one hit manufacturing.The new machine has been ordered with long parts facility, magazine bar feeder, swarf conveyor and high pressure coolant, all to assist with production on 24/7 basis, some lights out. This machine builds on our earlier heavy investment in state of the art machinery to service our customers in the manner they are becoming accustomed to.
