Let There be Light!

September 04, 2020

We’ve invested in a 1.5 Megawatt generator (that’s 1,500,000 Watts!). The generator will provide power to key equipment during peak electricity hours and power outages to ensure continuous production support.

 

The generator is another investment showcasing our commitment to reducing risk for Lofthouse and for our customers. The investment will help reduce our overall operating costs and ensure on-time delivery for our customers.

 

Thank you to everyone who helped the installation run smoothly and safely!

Lofthouse Continues to Invest

August 25, 2020

Lofthouse continues to invest with a new 5-axis mill for our Tool Room.

On Thursday we packaged up and said good-bye  to our 1350 HPM Mikron in our Tool Room. The mill was the first 5-axis machine in our Tool Room and ran over 52,500 hours while producing hundreds of dies and machine fixtures.

We have replaced the machine with a 5-axis Mikron Mill P 500 U. The first of this model in Canada, this machine is another investment into high quality, custom tooling produced with our customers’ needs at the forefront.

👍Thanks to GF Machining Solutions and KENCO MACHINERY MOVERS AND MILLWRIGHTS for the smooth delivery.

Increased Tool Production Capacity

August 07, 2020

At Lofthouse, we are always innovating to provide the highest level of quality and value to our customers. One of our most recent investments, the Helitronic Vision tool grinding machine, will now allow our Tool Room to produce customized, high quality carbide form tools for our Machine Shop.

 

💭What does this mean for Lofthouse customers?

 

In short, the tool grinding machine provides customization, speed, accuracy, and cost control to our customers.

 

✔CUSTOMIZATION: Our engineering department works hard to design “better functioning” tools that can lead to a reduction in machining cycle times and increased productivity. The Helitronic tool grinding machine has opened new opportunities for tooling improvements.

✔SPEED: Lofthouse now has the ability to produce custom carbide form tools in-house in a matter of hours to meet changing customer demands and requirements. Lead-time of custom tools can also be reduced to days instead of the 4-6 week wait time from outside tooling manufacturers.

✔ACCURACY: The tool grinding machine will be outfitted with a high-powered optical measuring module capable of magnifying 400x to ensure superior precision and quality of tooling.

✔COST CONTROL: By producing more tools in-house, Lofthouse is able to offer better cost control on our tools with batch quantities and eliminated tool shipping costs.

 

With this level of speed, customization, and accuracy in our tool production, you can be assured that your parts will be produced with the highest level of attention to quality and value through every stage of the process.

Lofthouse had a BIG week!

On Thursday, we officially welcomed a new Riello Transer Machine to Lofthouse. Two years in the making and with no detail spared, our custom-built transfer machine finally crossed the Atlantic and made its way 575KM from Montreal to its final home in Burk’s Falls.

Thursday morning there was an air of excitement at Lofthouse. People lined the parking lot and perched themselves in different doorways and windows to watch the anticipated delivery.  Once the machine was on premises the Lofthouse Maintenance team and @WesternMechanical sprung to action.

Lofthouse’s Maintenance team has been preparing for this day for a long time: contractors and equipment had been booked; areas have been cordoned off for safety; plans, drawings, and blueprints have been carefully inspected, revised, and studied. @WesternMechanical safely rigged and painstakingly maneuvered the 70 ton machine inch-by-inch into its new home utilizing remote control technology. It took a lot of time and a lot of effort, but the first stage of the new machine’s installation is done!

Way to go everyone!

Stay tuned for more information about this amazing machine!

Lofthouse and Staff Fight Back

2019 was a challenging year as we heard the ugly word "cancer" too many times. At Lofthouse we had many lives affected by this horrible disease which made this year's charity of choice an obvious one at our Christmas Party. Thank you to our generous and supportive staff who donated $930.00 at our annual Christmas party. Lofthouse matched these donations to bring the total donation to $1,860.00!
On Tuesday, February 25th we were joined by Kim Kanmacher, Cancer Cancer Society Representative, along with Lofthouse staff member and cancer fighter, Corina Evans for a cheque presentation.

Thank you to everyone who chose to donate!👏🏼

Welcoming the Newest Member of the Family

Rip off the plastic and pry open that crate! We’ve got work to do! 🔨

 

At Lofthouse, few things get us as excited as when new equipment comes through the door. New equipment means growth, process improvement, innovation, technological advancement, and above all, a new challenge to sink our teeth into. This week we’re welcoming a game changing piece of equipment into our Tool Room. Our Tool Room, a major support system for our press and machine shop departments, produces forge dies, cutting tools, CMM fixtures, custom made machine jaws, and much more! Now, with our new Helitronic Vision 400 grinder we’ve added another level of tool making capabilities to our shop.
