Baileigh Industrial Inc., a master distributor of high end metal working machinery has appointed Steven J. Wronkowski to General Manager. Steve will be responsible for continual improvement regarding the day to day operations in Europe, California, and Manitowoc. Steve and his family currently reside in Manitowoc.”
Most people don’t know it but in the last few years Baileigh Industrial has expanded our lineup to include a variety of machine shop equipment. Horizontal Lathes, Vertical Milling Machines, and Drill Presses are just a few of the products we now carry. As a former machinist, for 8 years, I know firsthand what is important on the machine shop floor.
Baileigh Industrial metal lathes offer many standard features and boast extremely tight tolerances making them an excellent choice for any machining situation. Our gear head lathes are economically priced so anyone can get into a Baileigh lathe for little cost. Our precision lathes offer even the most experience machinist the perfect tool for anything they could be doing, while our combination mill-drill-lathe (MLD) prove useful for the guy who is doing many different types of machining.
I personally know how frustrating it can be when you don’t have the right machine to do the job; that’s why Baileigh Industrial now has many different types of Vertical Milling Machines. These machines are the perfect fit for any machine shop or tool and die room. Many of the standard features found on Baileigh Industrial milling machines are considered options on competitor’s models; like the Yaskawa inverter drive systems enabling more control and easier adjustment to spindle speeds. Most Baileigh Industrial vertical milling machines offer power drive on the X,Y, and Z axis, and feature a high visibility DRO as standard equipment (Mitutoya in most cases). All around these are a great addition and will soon become the focal point of your machine shop.
Baileigh Industrial’s Drill Press line features some of the strongest and most rigid drill presses on the market. All models use a very large, robust column and heavy cast base for added stability. The gear head transmission also offers smooth transfer of power, no matter what the load is on the machine. Our inverter driven variable speed drill presses feature world class Delta drive systems; these presses are the Cadillac of drill presses and offer any feature that a full machine shop and/or tool room would ever need. I only wish that when I was working in the shop that I would have had drill presses that were this good.
Overall no matter what size your operation is Baileigh Industrial has the lathes, vertical milling machines, and drill presses to keep you at the top of your game.
Yours in machining,
Cory Henrickson – Baileigh Industrial Sales Executive
Baileigh Industrial recently attended “International Metalmeet 2010” in Oblong, IL, on October 13 thru October 16. This get together is organized by the directors of www.metalmeet.com, an online community of metal shapers, fabricators, auto restoration experts and true artists who convene once a year to trade tips and tricks on challenging projects in the metal forming world. While most attendees drove to the event with projects and machinery in tow, a number of metalworkers arrived via air including a few members from Canada and Europe.
In the end, some very knowledgeable craftsmen shared ideas, techniques, and stories about metal shaping and forming. Our machinery was used to construct fenders, gas tanks, and just about everything imaginable from simple flat sheets of metal. The information gained through this event is something that has immeasurable value and will stay with us for life.
Baileigh Industrial TN-250 Tube Notcher
I was the Contest Winner for the Baileigh TN-250 Holesaw Tube Notcher Giveaway back in March and finally got some content for a good writeup. I have put it to good use in my shop for a few months, so I thought I would pass on what I’ve learned and show off a few features this holesaw tube notcher has. First of all, this tube notcher is Made in America and if that doesn’t make you feel warm and fuzzy inside, I’m not sure what will! The TN-250 tube notcher is a unique notcher and it has features unlike any other on the market. Continue reading
