The world beating machine

The Butler Elgamill was the work horse of British Machining shops, had world wide appeal and can truly be considered a world beater of it's time.  The design and manufacture of the Machine in Halifax, England resulted in many innovations that lead the Machine tool world.   The HE Elgamill was the Final iteration of the ubiquitous Bulter Elgamill design and development pathway.   The HE Elgamill is still a significant presence in the machining world.  The robust and high quality design and build have resulted in the machines longevity and are still capable of producing high quality work.

Full turnkey

Many Companies are looking to mitigate supply change, skills and time-scale issues by bringing machining in-house.  When a companies previous experience of machining their products has been subcontracting out or buying in cut blanks that must then be welded perfectly into position, There is a need to bridge the knowledge gap.

At Seymour we have been supporting and re-engineering these machines for decades.   We also run our own machine shop for the manufacture of our own machines, accessories and products.  This makes Seymour perfectly placed for providing a full turnkey package all the way through from machine specification, and supply through upgrade and installation to fixturing, tooling and training as well as CAD and CAM if required.  Get intouch and find out how we can help you.
