Universal Milling and Boring

The SEYMOUR F-Type is designed and manufactured in Halifax, England.

The big advantage of a floor type machine is that the factory can be the work table for the machine allowing very large fabrications and castings to be presented to the machine for precision metal removal.
The F-Type is suited to both Large and small jobs, it is a truly universal milling and boring machine.

Your Requirements and Choice

The spindle speeds and power curves will be specified to match the tooling requirements. A range of milling heads of both manual and automatic types are available.

Good Foundations save you money

Conventionally floor type milling and boring machines have to be installed in a pit, the F-Type is designed to have a lower minimum spindle height than conventional machines and therefore can be installed at floor level.  This potentially reduces the cost of foundation work when compared to pit installed alternative machines.  The machine can also be manufactured to fit on an existing foundation, completely eliminating the requirement for a new foundation.

Configured to suit your needs

F-Type versions are available configured specific sectors including;

  • General purpose universal milling machine.
  • Fabrication and construction.
  • Hard material milling machine for the likes of rail and hard steel alloys such as inconel.
  • High speed machining for aluminium and aerospace type work.

The F-Type is designed in a modular manner to allow different options to be easily specified.  The basic machine is aimed at customers who just want to cut metal and need nothing more than a well designed, robust, CNC controlled, easy to use milling & boring machine.  Customers can request any option that might be required, be they purely technological or relating to the machine structure and modules used.  A typical list options would be;

  • Part probe
  • Tool measuring probe
  • Rotary tables
  • Dividing Heads
  • Box tables
  • Floor plates
  • Angle plates
  • Tool changer
  • Spindle power
  • Right angle head
  • Automatic universal head (1/1 degree or 3/3 degree)
  • Axis rapid rate
  • Axis travels
  • CNC system (Siemens, Heidenhain or Fagor, others available on request)
  • High pressure coolant
  • Air chip removal / coolant system
  • Swarf conveyor
  • Perimeter guarding systems
  • Bespoke CADCAM system
  • .............And any other requirements


The F-Type can be supplied to various specifications and it is possible to make the machine fit your exact requirements, typical specifications would be;

Seymour Designed Logo Design Philosophy

The use of the very latest technology allows the machine to not only meet current safety standards but to also reduce the energy requirements and the environmental impact of the machine.

The design philosophy was to reduce the number of components, allow maximum access for maintenance, maximize efficiency and allow the maximum flexibility of the specification.

The F-Type has been designed so the machine can be manufactured to suit customer requirements, shorter or taller columns, longer or shorter rams can be cast and the X axis travel can be shortened or extended to practically any conceivable length.

The F-Type is part of the Seymour E-Mill Range of machines.  These machines are designed with efficiency in mind making the F-Type a good investment for your companies future.

Machining versatility

The combination of the universal head and the inbuilt cycles in the CNC make machining on any plane simple and convenient.
