FAT Haco – dedicated to the railway industry

FAT Haco, well known for manufacturing medium and large CNC lathes, has recently installed two portal gantry mills for machining rails, crossings and other equipment being used to expand and modernise the railway network.

The RM 120 single-ram and RM 240 twin-ram are, respectively, 2.2M and 2.4M between columns and both have tables 8M in length, equipped with hydraulic fixtures. Both machines are fitted with automatically loaded angular milling heads, each driven by a high-torque 68k.W spindle motor. The ATC can handle tools Ø315mm weighing 50kg.

With large impending projects on the HS2 rail link, Thames Linkway tunnel and other roadway improvement schemes, Leader CNC is ideally placed, from a number of our principals, to provide OEM suppliers and subcontractors with a wide selection of machine tools for the manufacture of machinery and equipment.
