Toshiba Machine, established in 1938, is Leader CNC Technologies oldest principal. With its own foundry, large machine shop, electronics division and assembly bays, Toshiba can manufacture everything from start to finish – making all machine tools unique. Their machine tools can be found in many industries such as aerospace, power generation, marine and automotive, making large components and batches of smaller precision parts. Many other machine tool manufacturers in Japan, China, USA and the UK, have Toshiba products installed to their own factories to make their own major components.
Leader CNC Technologies engineers first started to install Toshiba machines over 30 years ago and many of these machines are still in production – a tribute to their quality. Since the closure of the Toshiba offices in Germany nearly 10 years ago, Leader CNC has been European Main Dealer, providing engineering, spare parts and sales support to customers and other agents.
One of the recent Toshiba installations has been at Desman Engineering, based in Nottinghamshire, for a TUE 200 (S) vertical boring machine - see the video below.Last year, six other large Toshiba machines were installed in the UK and Leader CNC has supplied machine tools as far away as Malaysia and India.
Toshiba Machine offer many types of machine tools - gantry mills, horizontal borers and horizontal machining centres and vertical turning centres. These top quality Japanese machine tools offer high accuracy and efficiency, as evidenced by multi-machine installations, long running installations and very high residual values.
The newest machine tool from Japan is the BSF horizontal milling and boring machine and has been designed for maximum operational rigidity, flexibility and high metal removal. This high speed machine can be equipped with a choice of automated accessories such as facing heads, universal heads and long reach snouts.The power, rigidity and machining performance of the BF150 with its square ram, capable of handling loads up to 150 tons, makes it suitable for use in industries such as power generation, aerospace, construction and marine, where high accuracy and long term reliability are paramount.
