Cabletech Marketing expands range with Haitian Precision’s new Hision VMC II CNC machine tools

CABLETECH Marketing, suppliers of solutions to the South African plastic’s industry since 1976, and proudly associated with Haitian International, has added Haitian’s Hision CNC range to the already very successful Haitian injection moulding machine range.

The VMC series machines was specifically built for the mould making industry and features Hision’s own 12 000rpm BT40 spindle, Fanuc IO MF Plus control with 200 block look-ahead, and multiple augers to clear excess metal chips faster. The wide base construction of the machine allows for better rigidity and smoother finishes.

The Vertical Machining Centres with table sizes of 650x400mm up to 8 500×3 700mm on double column machining centres are complemented by a large range of CNC Lathes from 5-inch to 18-inch chucks and up to 2 750mm between centres.


New Hision CNC vertical machining centres meet growing in-house mould manufacturing demand

Cabletech recently installed two new Hision CNC vertical machining centres at customers to assist with the growing in-house mould manufacturing demand.

Moret Mining was established in 1990 by Roelf and Jodi van Blerk and has since grown exponentially as one of South Africa’s leading manufacturers of conveyors for bulk handling products, as well as for the overseas market. Every product is designed in-house and is manufactured in their Johannesburg factory. Moret passionately believes that with dedicated excellence and commitment to value-added service, great success can be achieved and that is why they use Cabletech Marketing as a machine tool supplier.

As no stranger to the Haitian injection moulding machinery quality and repeatability, the Hision VMC 1000II Vertical Machining Centre became the obvious choice. The machine features large travel sizes for such a compact machine – 1 000mm on X-axis, 600mm on Y, and 600mm on Z-axis – and has 750mm daylight between spindle and table.

Böck industries, however, opted for the smaller VMC 850II version in the VMC II range. Like the bigger brother, the machine also features the same standards but with a slightly smaller machine bed and travel.

Dieter Böck, owner of Böck industries and avid aircraft builder and pilot, felt the need to upgrade his toolroom and after months of deliberation decided that the Hision VMC 850II would be an excellent addition. Accuracy and detail were key and the Hision is able to deliver those requirements

Dieter started Böck industries with his father Ludwig in 1975 when they started manufacturing small household items like key rings and bird feeders. He now works with his son Carl in this multi-generation business. They manufacture household items in the pet, automotive, aviation and floral industries. Their large variety of machines allows them to produce many different products – from number plate holders to electric fence bobbins and much more.
