Compact but multi-talented, maximizing efficiency and productivity of mass produced parts, the Brother S500X1 is a highly valued piece of equipment in the Falmer shop.
A vertical machining center possessing 14 tool positions and a high output spindle motor (10,000 RPM) the Brother S500X1 demonstrates highly efficient machining at all speeds.
As the Machine operates it lowers power consumption with the use of a power regeneration system. Other environmentally friendly specifications include: a high efficiency spindle motor, LED work light, energy saving pump, and automatic power off reduce energy consumption.

We only manufacture straight ends for these stainless steel brake lines and we are not involved in the final assembly.
The high production workhorse of our facility, Acme screw machines deliver high volume, precisely machined products in a cost effective manner. High performance machining and quality setup is the most important piece of the puzzle. Especially when cycle times can be 6 seconds or less for tens of thousands of pieces.
Falmer possesses eight machines which are six spindle machines ranging from 7/16” to 2” bar size that will machine parts down to as small as 1/8 inch and as big as 2 inches. It is hard to beat the cutting speed, feed rate and cycle time of a screw machine. To bring our clients the best price, our screw machine rule of thumb is to set our production run minimum at 5000.
With capabilities of milling materials from the soft (aluminum, brass) to the hard (stainless steel, titanium), and minimum tolerance of +/- .001, our screw machines can successfully complete many various jobs. Some of the parts we have manufactured on our screw machines are:
High Performance Automotive
Solar Power Industry
Trucking/Heavy Equipment Industry
Our screw machines are capable of a multitude of operations:
Tapping (Roll Form & Cut)
Threading (Roll Form & Cut)
To instill customer confidence with all orders we follow strict process controls from pre-production approval to final inspection.
So if you have a job that requires precision, speed and efficiency, screw machines may be your best bet.
