At Linkam each of our stages are designed and built in-house by our experienced engineers. Machining is a lengthy process and production time is limited by the capabilities of the equipment. Investing in new machinery is just one way in which Linkam endeavours to improve business practice and overall customer satisfaction.
Our newest gadget is the HAAS Automation VF-4SS which will be used right in the heart of production. The ingeniously designed side-mount tool changer holds 40 different tools, providing an “all-in-one” feature for stage production. The internal capacity of the machine now allows some of our bigger stages to be made in one production cycle, without the need for other machinery.
Dan Kirk, our production manager, reports on the new tool: “With the new VF-4SS, we’re expecting significantly reduced production times. It can hold more tools, house bigger stages and it incorporates the programmes we used previously. We’re looking forward to much more efficient and faster production runs.”
