The Bridgeport Knee Mill
The long-term reliability o a Series I mill is the result o its design eatures, the quality o its components, and the cratsmanship o itshand-scraped ways and precision ground ts. Every Hardinge-Bridgeport knee mill is built as though we’re going to use it ourselves.That’s why the resale value o a Bridgeport mill remains consistently high. The “bargain” imitators can’t say that. Our competitiveprices are a result o our higher volume—not rom building a cheaper machine. Rigidity starts with the main rame components o amachine, and or this reason, the strength and damping qualities o gray cast iron was chosen.
Patented 2J Head
The unique and patented air cooling system o the “2J” head ensures that any heat buildup in the spindle bearings, belt or quill area iskept to an absolute minimum. This is achieved by air being drawn into the belt housing and past the spindle bearings by the rotationo the drive belt. It is then exhausted out o the head assembly at the top o the casting. Distortion and inaccuracy due to exces-sive heat rise is kept to a minimum by maintaining the operating temperature within 20 degrees ahrenheit o ambient temperature.This also results in increased belt and bearing lie, as well as more consistent accuracy. Also, with no external cooling ans, vibration isreduced and the ongoing maintenance or threat o a an ailure is eliminated. Fans also requently require a step-down transormer i  the machine is wired or power greater than 110 Volts.
Series I One-Shot Lubrication
Adequate lubrication ensures a long accurate lie or the machine. It also reduces maintenance and makes the machine more sensi- tive and easier or the operator to use. A metered, centralized system lubricates all o the ways and screw assemblies o the machine.Operation o the system by a single lever saves the operator time and makes it easy to always provide the correct amount o oil,predetermined by a series o metering valves built into the system. Many competitive systems do not meter lubrication, which allows the oil to fow to the point o least resistance. Thus one sliding member may receive more oil than another, possibly causing excessivewear to the area that is not getting properly lubricated. An optional Automatic Lubrication System is also available.
Hand-Scraped Ways
All alignment ways and gibs are completely hand scraped to within tenths o a thousandth. This ensuresoptimum machine geometry, rigidity and accuracy.
Bridgeport’s Signature Painting Process
Castings are ully inspected, shot blasted, annealed and oxide coated…totally ree rom rust and contam-ination. They are then spray lled, sanded and painted with the rst o a two-part polyurethane coating to seal the castings. Painting beore machining builds the depth o gloss, which is required o all Series Imachines. The last process prior to skidding or shipment is to spray a nal nish coat o the best poly-urethane coating available.
