Rotamic Engineering has invested in a Bridgeport GX 1000 3-axis vertical machining centre at its Crediton factory in Devon.

Rotamic specialises in high precision manufacturing with a predominance in aerospace after the company secured AS 9100 accreditation. Its reputation has also spread across a range of specialist manufacturing from motorsport components to specialist medical to one-off and prototype machining.

It was with this diversity in mind that Rotamic purchased the Bridgeport mill with its 'all-rounder' capabilities, coupled with higher end specification.

Rotamic's machine has a 10,000 rpm spindle motor and is equipped with the through spindle coolant option which enhances the machine's versatility. Through coolant supplies coolant to the cutting edge at 20 bar and allows for faster speeds, enhanced deep hole drilling and blind pocket milling.

The swing arm tool change offers cycles as low as four seconds and Rotamic's machine was supplied with a Bridgeport tooling package comprising 40 tools. The CNC control is a the latest Fanuc i-Series GX control which offers advanced features such as rigid tapping, tool life management, run time and parts counter as standard.

Gary Squires, production manager at Rotamic, comments: "The team at Rotamic prides itself with a passion for problem solving and efficiency, whatever the size and complexity of a project. The mix that turns average into outstanding is not just a mixture of skill, experience and a passion for engineering but one we support with investment.

"It's early days yet so we have not been able to put the Bridgeport machine through all of its paces. But we have bought for the future; with our mix of work we have to be able to respond often at very short notice and when you have a machine of this capability with the ease and speed of programming, it's not difficult to see it is going to be an invaluable investment."
