Milltech Martin Bright has purchased two MALCUS Centreless Grinders from the US. The two identical machines had been purchased by their previous owner some time ago but were never installed. They were discovered by our ‘Machinery Scout’ Scott Wilson. The find was well timed as we were about to overhaul, at considerable cost, our ageing Malcus grinder which will now be used for spare parts. It is expected that the first of the new grinders will be operational later this year. Size range is 20 – 100mm dia.
A more significant investment is the new shape (square and hexagon bar) straightener which had also been purchased in the US and was recently installed. It will be commissioned over the next month. The roller straightener can process bars in the range 10 – 40mm.
