Manufacturer Training For Machine Tools

fryer 5 axis Manufacturer Training For Machine Tools

We have listened to many excuses by new customers for not taking advantage of training offered by the OEM. For example, the flights and hotel cost are too expensive or I can’t have one of my most valuable employees away from the shop for that long. Well, factory training can be scheduled so it won’t interrupt daily workflow, your employee obtains crucial knowledge and spends time with factory personnel that have operated the machine you just purchased.  Just think, when he has a problem he now has a factory friend he can contact.   That may save you down time and repair costs down the road.  Take the training it’s a great investment.

Caldwell Machinery Manufacturers provide training for the following machine lines:

  • Jet Edge
  • Strippit
  • KSI Swiss Machines
  • IWM Water Jets
  • Fryer, Mills and Lathes
  • Ecotech Grinders
  • AV Water Jet

Pro Turn Production Turning Centers

Monday, July 4th, 2011

Pro-Turn Production Turning Centersproturn logo Pro Turn Production Turning Centers

In addition to our line of KSI Swiss Screw Machines we have added a line of production turning centers.

Over the years, the Pro-Turn   series of precision production turning centers have evolved into three types of machines affording our customers the ability to select a specific style of machine for their manufacturing requirements:

P series Gang tools, dedicated to production tooling cutters are used to produce parts at the highest point of efficiency. Because the production tooling cutters are direct mounted to the axes there is no lost time due to turret positioning for indexing and then indexing to the next cutting tool. ProTurn VT 8 Pro Turn Production Turning Centers

PT series Gang tools plus turret combine the productivity of our P series with the increased tooling capacity of a static turret or static/dynamic turret to increase our customers manufacturing capability. Pro Turn VT 10 Pro Turn Production Turning Centers

TT series Turret plus Tailstock complements small parts production, these turret precision production centers offer the tooling management of either a static or static/dynamic turret and a heavy duty Tailstock for between centers operation.  TT Series Pro Turn Production Turning Centers


Strippit Now Offering A P1525 Punch Press

Friday, June 24th, 2011

The P series has recently been enhanced, and we are now offering a P 1525 Punch Press machine.

The P 1525 will be almost identical to the P 1225, with the exception that a larger throat will allow for a 60″ wide sheet. We recently accepted an order from a door manufacturer on Long Island, NY and the machine has been launched into production.

p series 1525 300x240 Strippit Now Offering A P1525 Punch Press

Many OEM’s, like our first P 1525 at the door manufacturer, have parts that are wider than 48″. In years past, we offered an FC 1000 R style machine so that the customer could rotate the sheet around to punch wider blanks. A new P 1525 allows for wider blanks without rotation of the blank

Many manufacturers have purchased 5′ X 10′ laser systems in the last decade. They typically buy all materials in 5′ wide blanks to match their laser, so a new P 1525 may be a logical choice for handling jobs with forming or other jobs where punching makes sense.

This is a unique offering as no other manufacturer provides a 60″ wide machine in the entry level market.

Touch Screen for Laser Cutting Machines

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

TouchL 490x392 Touch Screen for Laser Cutting Machines


LVD’s new Touch-L, a touch screen graphical user interface (powered by CADMAN®) and featured on select models of laser cutting systems, brings the ease of LVD’s Intelli-Touch technology to laser processing so that both routine and complex operations can be quickly and efficiently accomplished with minimal operator input.

Touch-L simplifies the laser cutting process by using intuitive graphical icons and visual indicators to control and display functions such as lens and nozzle selection, download of an NC file to the machine memory, quick file searching and file editing, preview of the part/nesting, and to provide real time reproduction of the cutting path.

After selection of the parts, Touch–L performs automatic nesting and job generation and production can begin. In an easy and intuitive way, the operator can change cutting quantlities, the position and type of lead-in, and add or relocate micro joints for all online generated jobs.Touch-L imports multiple extensions, including DXF/NC, and supports USB memory and network drives.

Touch-L is also compatible with LVD’s CADMAN-OEE process management software, which captures and analyzes key machine productivity indicators so that users can optimize the overall efficiency of their equipment.The end result is easier, more intuitive programming and faster, more efficient processing.

Experience the simplicity and the power of Touch-L.
