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
