LOW-COST NC TURNING AT BRITISH RAIL, WOLVERTON

This article cites applications of relatively low-cost NC machines for the production of fairly small parts at low levels of output in repair work performed by British Rail Engineering Ltd at its Wolverton works. In particular, a Hydro NC 540 lathe has been installed which has eliminated difficulties experienced with sequence-controlled automatics and manually operated center lathes as well as the use of high-cost special tooling.
