Moores auto lathes
Moores auto lathes come with various accessories. In some applications, mainly pieces shaped at the end of the tube (such as threads, joins, flanges,…), the process requires that the tube is shaped both outside and inside. The outside forming can be performed by using the revolving external forming tool holder, which is a standard equipment of the termographic controlled lathe. The inside forming, on the other hand, requires a special 'tool', named 'internal forming tool holder'. Read more.
This accessory can be very quickly mounted in replacement of the right chuck. The holder fits any forming tool with an axis of 15 millimetres. It rotates freely on water cooled bearing and can move both horizontally (to penetrate inside the tube) and vertically (to adjust internal diameter).
From now on, there is no need to choose between a 'one-head forming machine' and a 'two-head machine'. This accessory makes the thermographic controlled lathe even more universal. To cover an extensive range of applications, the unit can be equipped with a motorized NC rotation axis (case of inner threads) and with an edge forming tool carrier.
Some clients prefer not to purchase the lathes themselves but subcontract instead. Thanks to the high-tech equipment used, Moores is able to produce, on a custom basis, a very wide range of glass and quartz components.
