Calder invests in new superfast forging machines
Calder’s Specialist Product factory is dedicated to the manufacture of an extensive range of precision engineered lead products serving many demanding market sectors. To increase the capability of this area even further, two superfast forging machines have just been added to its arsenal of high-tech equipment.
Each machine deforms lead wire between 2mm to 6mm in diameter to produce high volume precision forged components. As their name suggests, the machines do this without heating the wire first, allowing more precise tolerances to be achieved.
The quick tool changes, quick set ups and CAD interface of Calder’s new machines will promote even more efficient production and customer service.
