PTG Holroyd supplies customer with 17th rotor milling machine

PTG Holroyd supplies customer with 17th rotor milling machineOne of the world’s leading air compressor machinery specialists has ordered a 17th EX Series rotor milling machine from Rochdale-based PTG Holroyd.

Scheduled for build later this year, the machine, a 3EX-R model, will be installed at one of the air compressor company’s North American manufacturing facilities. Able to rough-mill rotor blanks of up to 350mm in diameter, it will be used to produce rotors for portable and stationary air compressors.

Mark Curran, PTG Holroyd sales director, said: “Over the years, we have sold more than 30 of our advanced machine tool technologies to this organisation. In fact the company purchased its first Holroyd machine back in the 1950s. Models sold to date include EX Series rotor milling machines, CS Series cutter sharpener machines, and TF Series test fixture machines which are used to ensure the accurate measuring of rotor profile clearances.

“If repeat orders are an indication of the trust a company places in a supplier and the quality of its technologies, service and support, this latest order is a tremendous accolade for our business.”

PTG Holroyd’s EX Series CNC rotor and pump-screw milling machines have earned global acclaim for their high-speed, high-precision, high levels of efficiency and unrivalled build quality. Delivering class-leading reliability and performance, the EX range begins with the 2EX — a machine capable of milling helical components of up to 250mm in diameter — and offers stepped increases in capability, right up to the 8EX (850mm maximum component diameter) rotor milling machine. There are models with the additional capability to mill Roots-type blowers, and a ‘custom-build’ 10EX machine for milling blanks in excess of 1,000mm in diameter.

EX machines cut a full-depth groove by traversing the cutting tool through the material at the relevant helix angle, whilst at the same time rotating the component in the ‘C’ axis. Accurate synchronisation between the axes is maintained via CNC, with digital drive technology controlling all axis movements.

The cutting head is able to remove so much material in one step because the majority of heat generated is transferred to the swarf chips. These are then removed from inside the machine by means of a conveyor system.

Extremely flexible in their manufacturing capabilities, EX Series machines are equally efficient at producing complex components with helical screw profiles, as they are when milling gear parts such as worm shafts.

Developed to improve productivity through a combination of high-speed operation, powerful menu-driven touchscreen CNC programming, quick-change tooling, high-power spindles and immense rigidity, EX Series machines deliver class-leading performance, reliability and repeatability, and benefit from advanced technologies such as on-machine probing and dry milling techniques for certain materials.
