The Seymour Engineering Ltd (SEL) F-Type milling machine has been designed so the machine can be manufactured to suit customer requirements, shorter or taller columns, longer or shorter rams can be cast and the X axis travel can be shortened or extended to practically any conceivable length.

The spindle speeds and power curves will be specified to match the tooling requirements. A range of milling heads of both manual and automatic types are available.

This machine can be installed at floor level, this potentially reduces the cost of foundation work when compared to pit installed alternative machines.  The machine can also be manufactured to fit on an existing foundation.

The F-Type is designed and manufacturered in Halifax, England.  At SEL we believe in keeping design and technical expertise in house, this gives us the greatest flexibility allowing bespoke design issues to be incorporated into the machines.  Examples of this are the ability to adjust the bed dimensions to suit an existing foundation or adding specific technologies.

The use of the very latest technology allows the machine to not only meet current safety standards but to also reduce the energy requirements and the environmental impact of the machine.
The design philosophy was to reduce the number of components, allow maximum access for maintenance, maximise efficiency and allow the maximum flexibility of the specification.  The F-Type is available for different industries with the specification tailored to suit.  Versions are available configured specific sectors;

  • General purpose universal milling machine.
  • Hard material milling machine for the likes of rail and hard steels alloys such as inconnel.
  • High speed machining for aluminium and aerospace type work.

The F-Type is designed in a modular manner to allow different options to be easily specified.  The basic machine is aimed at customers who just want to cut metal and need nothing more than a well designed, robust, CNC controlled, easy to use milling & boring machine.  Customers can request any option that might be required, be they purely technological or relating to the machine structure and modules used.  A typical list options would be;

  • Part probe
  • Tool measuring probe
  • Box tables
  • Floor plates
  • Angle plates
  • Tool changer
  • Spindle power
  • Right angle head
  • Automatic universal head (1/1 degree or 2.5/2.5 degree)
  • Axis rapid rate
  • Axis travels
  • CNC system (Siemens, Heidenhain or Fagor, others available on request)
  • High pressure coolant
  • Air chip removal / coolant system
  • Swarf conveyor
  • Perimeter guarding systems
  • Bespoke CADCAM system
  • And any other requirements
