We’re Building another Machine Tool!

Bardons & Oliver is currently building a machine tool specifically for the hydraulic and pneumatic cylinder market. One of our many customers producing hydraulic cylinders purchased a B&O 2SC-850 fully automated CNC Machining System.  The machines highlights include a Fanuc CNC Control, a Renishaw probe system, live tooling with thru-tool coolant, and large capacity thru bore (8.50” diameter).  The spindle system boasts 1,600 maximum rpm and 50 max horsepower spindle motor.

Included is a fully automatic material handling system for the raw material and finished parts. Material and part contact surfaces contain our Non-Mar Technology to protect material from scratching, scoring and denting.  Contact one of our Sales Team Members about this system along with one of many other systems B&O has to offer.

Bardons & Oliver – Newest Rotating Head Machine – RH450HP

Bardons & Oliver is excited to announce our newest addition to the Rotating Head Series Cut-off Systems. B&O’s RH450HP Rotating Head Cut-off Lathe is a completely new machine built for small, lightweight, extremely FAST tube processing.  Designed specifically for thin wall tubing ranging from .028” (.71mm) to .312” (7.94mm) wall thickness, tubing diameters from .750” (19.05mm) up to 4.500” (114.3mm) diameter.  Our integrated material handling system includes a fully automatic raw material bundler/unscrambler loading table.  Cycle times ranging from 6 to 8 seconds part to part.  With full wrap work holding, the machine will not deform tubing, providing clean cutoff parts with nearly zero kerf by utilizing 3mm cut-off blades to minimize material loss.

When paired with our high-speed double end fully automatic chamfer system, it’s capable of both OD and ID chamfers on both tube ends resulting in concentric chamfers.  Add a fully automated robotic unloading with a palletize system, B&O’s newest machine will minimize operator intervention, thus reducing labor costs.  Please contact any one of our Sales Team Members for additional details and machine capabilities.FullSizeRender

Manufacturing Day 2015

Today is Manufacturing Day 2015.

We here at Bardons & Oliver join the rest of the manufacturing community in celebrating what we do, the products we create, the processes we use and — most importantly, our employees — the people who do the work.

Today, we are also hoping to dispel some myths often held by those outside manufacturing — that manufacturing is:

  • A dead-end job with no future;
  • A dirty job
  • For people who couldn’t get into college and
  • A low-paying career

Watch our videos, read our posts and take a look at our photos.  You’ll learn that manufacturing in general — and Bardons & Oliver in particular — have a lot more going for them than you knew.
