If it’s obsolete or no longer made, our in-house engineering team can possibly manufacture a new part or modify an existing one. With in-house bespoke engineering facilities we can manufacture one-off or large batches of gears and engineered parts. Whether it’s complete manufacture or modification to off the shelf products such as sprockets, couplings or pulleys, including bore and keyway, broaching and splining.
Machine Shop Capacity
Arrow Engineering’s machine shop is equipped with manual and CNC machinery for Turning, Milling, Gear Cutting, Slotting and Broaching as well as fabrication.
Their CNC Lathes and Milling machines, are predominantly XYZ ProtoTRAK controls. These machines provide “conversational-type” programming with easy touch-screen controls that have simple features where you don’t need as much programming knowledge to that of other traditional CNC programming languages.
The “ProtoTRAK TRAKing” feature gives you the ability to alternate between manual and CNC mode. Using the tracking, electronic handwheels has the reel feel of a manual machine, bringing the power of CNC to your fingertips. Using the “TRAKING” and “GO TO” features help control feed rate and other features in the digital read out, providing safety and saving machine crashes. By carefully using the handles manually to set your programme and then switch to CNC run mode, push “GO” and it will automatically do the machining by itself.
The Lathes and Bed Mills also use DXF Converters which means that Downloads, direct from Desktop to machine are also used.
