Following last year’s addition of Dugard HD 1886B and HD 2210B heavy duty, box way, vertical machining centres, Southern Manufacturing exhibitor MJ Allen Castings & Machining has installed two Heller H4000 machines in a second round of investment in its machine shop.
The twin pallet Heller 4000 allows for traverse in X, Y and Z of 800mm, with one machine carrying a 160 tool magazine and the other carrying 80 tools. Both machines have gone straight to work machining AWD transmission castings for Ford.
Operating foundries alongside its machine shop in Ashford, Kent, the company provides a one-stop shop for aluminium, bronze and iron castings, machining, painting and assembly. All operations are ISO-certified to 9001, 14001 and 18001.
