  • Sports Fencing Equipment Manufacturer Takes Automated Finishing To The Next Level

    Jack Jacob at Leon Paul Equipment commented, “Five years ago we started producing a revolutionary pistol grip called Evolution for our epees and foils.

    Many fencers around the world including winners at last year’s Olympic Games in Rio use weapons manufactured by London firm, Leon Paul Equipment. What many of them may not realise is the level of expertise that goes into ensuring that the foils, epees and sabres are finished to a very high standard. To this end, a focus on deburring and surface treatment has seen two more vibratory machines installed in the factory by Bletchley-based supplier, PDJ Vibro.

    “It allows fencers to use mouldable glue (Sugru) to customise the shape of the handle and was well received within the sport. However, it presented us with the problem of how to achieve the required uniformity of mottling and smoothness on the surface of the aluminium investment castings.”

  • Subcontractor Sets Up Manufacturing Cell For Perkins Engines

    Peterborough subcontractor Westcombe Engineering has installed a new manufacturing cell to produce increased quantities of a family of aluminium engine components for Perkins Engines. It comprises a Haas ST-30 CNC lathe with short bar feeder, a Blast Wash top-loading washing machine and a vibratory bowl finishing machine from PDJ Vibro, the second to be installed in the factory.

    Now owned by Peterborough City Council, Westcombe Engineering was established in the early 1970s by philanthropist Royce Westcombe to provide work and development opportunities in manufacturing for people with physical and mental disabilities, of whom 10 currently work at the factory. Together with seven support staff, they produce milled and turned parts mainly for nearby Perkins Engines and its parent group, Caterpillar.

  • Vibratory Trough for Finishing Aluminium Aerospace Components

    High-end manufacturing solutions for the aerospace engineering sector are provided by Bowmill Engineering from several factory units on the Nuffield Industrial Estate in Poole. In the finishing and assembly department, machined parts are deburred carefully using a variety of finishing practices. In April 2016, the company decided to augment these by installing a PDJ Vibro EVT-320 vibratory trough alongside its existing vibratory bowl machine, which was at full capacity.

    It is employed for smoothing sharp edges and finishing the surfaces of aluminium components automatically. Many are destined for landing gear on Airbus passenger aircraft, so the finish and cosmetic appearance must be of high quality. Any slight imperfection in manual deburring or marks left by polishing out cutter stepovers are now removed efficiently in a 10-minute rumbling cycle in the trough.
