Supply of a Large planing machine for the Rail industry

March 2002

Seymour Engineering is proud to announce the winning of an order to supply a very large planing machine to a prestigious UK Rail manufacturing company.

The brief

Our customer required a very large planing machine with the capability of both milling and planing.  The machine would be used for the production of rail components.  Our customer was aware of the rarity of these machines on the used market and was therefore willing to have a machine of the required size modified to achieve the specification.

The Machine

Seymour Engineering located a machine of the correct size in North America.  This machine had 2 vertical planing heads and one horizontal milling box, Our customers requirements for 2 planing heads and the ability to mill vertically when not planing.  After our customers inspection of the machine and our proposal for the conversion of the machine, the order was placed.
