Bardons & Oliver also Machines Small Parts

Bardons and Oliver’s Contract Machining Group is well known for machining large complex parts. Although we’re very capable machining large complex parts, we’re just as capable of machining smaller complex parts.  B&O has multiple pieces of equipment capable of machining a 24” cube and under.

Our Makino a81, 16 pallet 24.75” x 24.75” (628mm x 628mm) shuttle machine with a Makino cell controller system is one example of our smaller work envelope.   Our Makino a81 boasts a 300-pocket tool changer with 3.2 second tool change time (chip to chip), Renishaw probing, ChipBlaster high pressure coolant system, up to 10,000 r.p.m., and is capable of operating unmanned.  It’s just one example of our equipment that is capable of efficiently machining smaller parts.

Bardons and Oliver wants to be your partner to drive out costs while exceeding your expectations. Please contact a Sales Team Member for more information.

Fermat WFT13 + Large Parts = Success for Bardons & Oliver


Northeast Manufacturing Magazine, the regional magazine for Manufacturing News Online, published a profile of Bardons & Oliver’s purchase and use of Fermat’s WFT13 for machining large parts, both completely and in part.

Bardons & Oliver specializes in parts up to 20,000 lbs. and a 7-foot cube (finished size: X/Y/Z – 120″/78″/60″). The Fermat enables us to handle those parts where use of a horizontal boring mill is appropriate.

B&O personnel who were interviewed for this article included Ben Bailey, Brett Baldi, 1st Shift Team Leader Tom Bayus, CNC Machinist John Shields and B&O President William Beattie.
