L. & M. Precision Products Inc. is the largest screw-machine jobbing shop in Canada, and it observes its 60th anniversary of successful business this year. One reason for the company’s longtime success is its range of equipment and its abilities. The plant in west Toronto holds many multi-station and multi-spindle machines. The L. & M. team operates more than 70 first-operation automatic screw machines in its facility, and the multi-station and multi-spindle equipment boosts the company’s versatility and efficiency in making precision-machined parts.
Hydromat multi-station machines
With the several multi-station transfer machines that it owns, L. & M. Precision Products can accomplish cost-saving cycle times for complex parts that would usually require more than one operation on other machines for medium and large production runs. These components are typically made complete with high quality and consistency. The multi-station machinery at the plant consists of both 12- and 16-station Hydromats. Currently, L. & M. owns five Hydromat machine with 12-station capability, in addition to one Hydromat unit with 16-station capability.
Davenport and Wickman multi-spindle machines
In addition to all this equipment, L. & M. has more than 30 Davenport and Wickman multi-spindle machines. This equipment can serve medium- and large-volume production with extremely precise results of high quality. The exceptional cycle times of these machines result in significant cost savings, as opposed to some components usually made on CNC equipment.
The L. & M. facility houses 16 Davenport five-spindle automatic screw machines as of this writing, as well as 16 Wickman six-spindle automatic screw machines. A lot of these machines can handle a capacity of up to 1¾ inches, and some of them have Cucchi Bar loaders on them as well.
This is obviously far from the complete range of machinery that the company uses. L. & M. also operates more than a dozen Brown & Sharpe single-spindle machines, as well as 24 CNC production machines and Swiss-style units in its production. Additionally, the firm has a full secondary-operations department that can handle machining, milling, assembly, drilling, tapping, broaching, centreless and plunge grinding, thread rolling, and more.
