“More horsepower, more torque, and more capacity were required to increase production requirements. Current machines, with seven horsepower, would no longer do the job needed,” said Moundville Metal Works President, Tony Redding. Moundville Metal Works, Inc., founded in Alabama in 1994, is a general machining company. Some of the components machined are plate rolls up to 27” O.D. and 120” long and all types of components for the roofing industry. The shop machines Hardox 400 abrasion-resistant steel components for the mining industry. The materials used in machining include brass, stainless steel, 4140 steel, 4340 steel alloy, Hardox 400/450, blocks, plates, and rolls. “After a thorough search, we purchased two Ganesh machines from Metal Worx Machinery, a distributor for Expand Machinery. The machines purchased were the VFM 6237 machining center and the GTW-30 CNC lathe, heavy-duty machines with more torque and longer, larger travels than our present machines. Both of these machines have 30 HP spindle motors, meeting our need for more power,” said Redding.
