Horizontal grinders also tend to be within road travel width and easier to transport, says Ralph O'Donnell, western regional sales manager for Sundance Equipment LLC, Newton, Kan.
But there are variances within horizontal grinders to consider as well, says Tim Griffing, systems engineer for Continental Biomass Industries Inc.
Among them is Makino (Mason, OH), which has long been known for the horizontal machining-center based systems that are used in powertrain and brake system manufacturing operations.
A horizontal spindle CNC machine that's designed to operate either as a stand alone or configured in a line in an exceedingly compact manner is the TOP J from Toyoda Machinery USA (Arlington Heights, IL).
Yet the company has found that when its customers started looking for horizontal spindle machines to bump up their production levels, they began to look at other vendors.
Another company that's looking toward providing equipment that can work in automotive-type environments, where 24/7 is not an unusual cycle demand, is Mori Seiki (Irving, TX), which is offering a new horizontal machining center, the NH5000.
Reproduced, Leonard's work might recall Kenneth Noland's horizontal stripe paintings from the '60s, but in fact the two groups of work have little in common.
Not about their own: Although they consist exclusively of horizontal elements, the canvases themselves are not extremely horizontal and are less so the bigger they are (the smallest ones here are twice as long as they are high; the larger ones have a 2:3 ratio of height to width; and the largest, Appalachia, 2000, has a 3:4 ratio).
We are making good progress at present on the appraisal of our Manavi oil discovery, with further results expected soon, and we now have a way forward on our horizontal
completed a fourth horizontal
well on its Battle Creek, Saskatchewan property during August, 1995.
Saturn engineers revealed that there had been much development work aimed at using thermoplastic for the upper, horizontal
portion of the deck lid.
The well was subsequently plugged backed to the Wolfcamp formation where a horizontal lateral of approximately 2,600 feet was drilled, cased, cemented and selectively perforated and fracture stimulated in three stages.
1, is currently drilling ahead approximately 850 feet out in the horizontal portion of the well, with a projected lateral length of approximately 4,000 feet.
The New Mexico Wolfcamp horizontal resource gas play, as defined by Parallel Petroleum, encompasses approximately 300,000 gross acres in portions of Eddy and Chaves Counties in southeastern New Mexico.
