Automation on the job: The Makino A811


The Makino A811 on our floor is one of the newest machining centers at Bardons & Oliver.

Its features include:

  • Maximum material size: 35″ x 32″ x 35″
  • A 300 position tool changer
  • CMM Probes, Contouring B-Axis
  • 1000 PSI through spindle coolant
  • 16 pallet dual layer cell system

This allows an operator to program as many as 16 different parts.  The materials for the part are moved by a robotic pallet programmed by the machinist.

The probe mentioned above allows the machine to do CMM (Coordinate Measurement Machine) inspection, right on the machine.  See the video below:
