Foden boiler on CNC

Post  miller on Mon 10 Aug 2009, 1:29 pm

just a quick pic of the foden boiler on the CNC...



you can see that the boiler barrels are pre-machined before the boilers are welded up...



using these pre drilled holes, a cradle is mounted in the position of the cylinder. this then fits into a Jig that is bolted to the table, setting the boiler up nice and square. using the cradle as a reference point the mounting lugs are machined and drilled and everything comes out nice and accurate.



in many ways, this is done manually and takes a good bit of time, but then who wants to rush when you realise how much one boiler costs to make.

and they still need turning over for the other side to be done pale

With respect to the last photo showing the boilers all connected up for pressure testing, they look remarkably like Burrell 4inch boilers - compare them with the other pictures?? Rolling Eyes
