New PTG Holroyd machine is first of kind to precision grind both worms and gears
Manufacturing high-accuracy worm gears and screws alongside precision spur and helical gears has traditionally required the use of two quite different CNC grinding machines. Thanks to PTG Holroyd’s newly launched HG350-WG worm and gear grinding centre, however, just one machine can now complete both tasks.
PTG Holroyd’s advanced ‘dual rotor milling technology’ is set to redefine Roots-type blower production for leading German manufacturer
A recently developed dual-purpose CNC rotor milling machine from PTG Holroyd is all set to revolutionise the manufacturing capabilities of a leading German maker of compressed air, gas and vacuum technologies. Currently in build at PTG Holroyd’s Rochdale-based machine tool technology centre, the machine, a PTG-Holroyd 4EX-R-BL (BL = blower) model, will be used to precision-mill both helical rotors and Roots-type blower air ends.
Holroyd tool management centre brings greater flexibility to global compressor manufacturer
One of the world’s leading manufacturers of refrigeration and air compressors has ordered a new PTG Holroyd CS700 tool management centre. The machine tool, which is currently in build at PTG Holroyd’s UK-based technology centre, will be shipped to one of the compressor manufacturer’s facilities in China’s Jiangsu province early next year.
