5 axis CNC Milling, Fixed Head Turning, Sliding Head Turning in a range of materials
CNC Milling 3 + 5 axis:
CTPE operate 5 vertical machining centres, 2 of which have 5 axis capability for complex prismatic parts. Over the last few years, CTPE have invested in the latest generation machines from Brother. The Brother Speedio series of machines are at some of the fastest high speed machining centres available on the market. In addition 2 of our Brother Speedio machines are equipped with 5 axis rotary tables from Nikken and Lehmann to increase our capabilities further.
Supporting our milling department is a seat of the latest Edgecam CAD CAM software. This gives us the ability to import 3D model files in IGES, STEP or Solid works formats to generate a range of high speed toolpaths including complex 3D surfacing. We machine a broad range of materials including, Aluminium Alloy, Stainless Steels, Engineering plastics and composites.
Fixed Head Turning:
We Have 2 Fixed Head Turning Centres with a maximum bar capacity of 45mm. One of which is a 4 axis lathe with live tooling which enables us to produce more complex components in 'one hit' by eliminating the need for subsequent milling operations to be carried out on another machine.
Recently CTPE have invested in Sliding Head technology from famous Swiss brand Tornos. The DT26 and CT20 7 axis machines have a bar capacity of upto 26mm and can produce components upto 200mm in length. The machines are capable of 'one hit' machining and are paired with Tornos Robobar 3.2m barfeeds for lights out production.
