Numachine Enhances Operations with Ward CNC’s Hyundai-Wia Vertical Turning Lathe

Superior Performance with the Hyundai-Wia VTL

We are delighted to share how our Hyundai-Wia vertical turning lathe is improving precision and efficiency for our customers.

Numachine, a thriving Hereford-based business specialising in CNC machining and subcontract manufacturing, has embraced the advantages of the new Hyundai-Wia LV800RM vertical turning lathe (VTL) supplied by T.W. Ward CNC Machinery Ltd (Ward CNC). The quality and performance of the machine have impressed Numachine, contributing to the optimisation of their manufacturing processes.

Brandon Davies, Managing Director of Numachine, and a dedicated mechanical engineer by trade, expresses his passion for problem-solving and continuous improvement. Brandon comments:

“I enjoy solving problems. Even if I work 15-16 hours a day, I don’t feel tired because my hobby is my job, and I absolutely thrive on it. I like to come in every day, go around the shop and see how we can improve. I’d say this character is something we all share at Numachine; everyone is trying to contribute to our continuous improvement.”

Serving a Variety of UK Manufacturing Industries

Numachine primarily serves industries such as automotive, medical, aerospace, laboratory/instrumentation, and renewable energy, all requiring the highest quality standards. Brandon Davies keeps a keen eye on the electric vehicle (EV) segment, given his personal interest as an EV driver and Numachine’s supply of components to prestigious automotive companies for use in electric vehicles.

New CNC Machine Leads to Optimal Performance

Numachine has recently incorporated a Hyundai-Wia LV800RM VTL from Ward CNC into its diverse machinery lineup. Renowned for its robust and heavy-duty cutting platform, the Hyundai-Wia LV800RM VTL boasts a one-piece, square-type column that delivers excellent stability. This machine is equipped with a stable shaft structure, providing a high cutting capacity suitable for handling substantial loads.

Precision and Efficiency at its best

Noteworthy features of the Hyundai-Wia LV800RM include:

  • two-step chuck pressure mechanism  designed to minimise workpiece deformation and ensure optimal chip evacuation.
  • Within the LV series, a dedicated protection device  has been integrated to prevent chips and other foreign materials from entering the main spindle, guaranteeing continued high-precision performance.
  • The Hyundai-Wia LV800RM is characterised by its impressive specifications , offering a maximum turning diameter and turning length of 800mm, coupled with a maximum spindle speed of 2000 rpm.

This addition to Numachine’s workshop enhances its machining capabilities, reinforcing its commitment to precision and efficiency  in manufacturing processes.

Speaking on the experience of working with Ward CNC, Brandon comments:

“It was an entirely smooth experience. Ward CNC took care of processes such as specifying the machine based on our application, placing the order, delivery, installation, and operator training. We’re pleased with the quality and performance of the Hyundai-Wia vertical lathe; it’s a good addition to our range of machines. There was only one small issue a few months ago which was solved rapidly by Ward CNC and we’re completely satisfied with the performance of the company’s service.”

At Ward CNC we have in stock Hyundai-Wia’s latest model, the Hyundai-Wia LV8500RM.LM Compact Type CNC Vertical Lathe with C-Axis & Driven Tools. This machine showcases an impressive spec which you can view here.
