If only we had CNC on our heavy machines
If only we had CNC on our heavy machines On visits to heavy engineering and power station maintenance shops, the production engineers there have often said: “If only we had CNC on this Kearns horizontal borer, on this Noble and Lund plano miller ….”
Well, Acu-Rite, manufacturers of digital read-out systems and 3D CNC retrofit ‘kits’, is now able to take enquiries from users of ‘heavy’ and ‘super-heavy’ machine tools.
Two Rock Hill men were arrested for stealing heavy construction equipment earlier this month, according to a York County Sheriff’s Office Report.
Mark Giles Pafford, 55, of Ferguson Drive and Mickey Duncan, 50, of Mount Holly Road are accused of selling a back hoe and Caterpillar Skid Steer loader that were both reported stolen from Rock Hill about the same time, the report says.
Pafford and Duncan sold the items for a total of $12,000. The back hoe is valued at $50,000, the report said.
Both are being held at Moss Justice Center on grand larceny and criminal conspiracy charges, with Pafford’s bond set at $82,000 and Duncan’s at $52,000.
