Supplied, Retrofitted and upgraded Machine

Our Customer approached Seymour for a full turnkey package from specification through supply, retrofit ,installation, make legally compliant, Bespoke Fixtures, tooling package, training and service of a machine that was suitable for milling and drilling all the requirements for their own products.  This Elgamill was located in Europe, it had been dormant for some time and had faults.  This was to be the companies first CNC milling machine so ease of use was essential.

The original Heidenhain CNC was removed and replaced.  The original electrical panel was very large and installed next to the machine.   This was completely stripped with the servo drives moved to the much smaller Electrical panel which was fitted to the machine Column.  This greatly reduced the machine overall footprint.

Seymour E-Mill Logo Design efficiency

Initially, the proposed machine was a manual milling head machine and the Fagor 8037 was proposed.   The machine became unavailable and a replacement was sourced.   The replacement machine was more recent with a Autohead.   In line with our E-Shop  philosophy and programme, the Prove Fagor 8037 was replaced with the 8055MC using the proven design as the base.
