Important milestone for Kingston Engineering

Seeking continuous improvement, efficiency and optimisation of its production processes, Kingston Engineering has invested in a top class machine tool from Leistritz, a brand well known world wide.

This Leistritz LWN 160.6000 is an external whirling machine for the production of Trapezoidal or Acme thread lead screws, custom threads and Ball Screws. The thread surface achievable goes from 0.02 Ra with a new insert to 0.08 Ra with a re-ground insert. These values are similar to a grinding machine.

Kingston says the purchase of this machine tool guarantees higher precision and higher speed production of lead screws with both right and left hand threads or multiple start threads.

The purchase of this Leistritz LWN 160.6000 thread whirling machine represents a very important milestone for Kingston Engineering, says the company. It demonstrates Kingston's desire to invest in the very latest and most advanced metal cutting technology. It will enable Kingston to produce the highest quality lead screws for their customers and to develop new markets.

Leistritz is the international leader in the high speed production of internal and external threads and also in the production of special profiles. The purchase of this machine has been necessary to cope with rising demand requiring shorter delivery without compromising product quality.
