DeVille & Lear have trusted DIMAKIN to supply their metal fabrication machinery. The first of these machinery replacements was an upgrade to a DP-3810-A Pillar Drill. This is the largest column-style drill press of the current range.
With over 70 years of experience as construction engineers, DeVille & Lear specialise in portal framed buildings and can construct almost any type of steel framed building. This includes agricultural and industrial buildings; from the smallest lean-to extension through to industrial warehouses with spans of up to 40 metres.
Based in Derbyshire, DeVille & Lear operate as construction engineers throughout the entire UK mainland. They serve various areas with their own erection and cladding teams. DeVille & Lear boast a large customer base, which even includes the Crown Estate, and their own workshop building!
In 1948 Mr DeVille & Mr Lear, formed the partnership creating agricultural buildings, and remained a close family business since that day. Despite this, however, DeVille & Lear have managed to expand exponentially in the structural steelwork manufacturing offered.
To facilitate their growth, DeVille & Lear have trusted DIMAKIN to supply their metal fabrication machinery, and replace their legacy machinery, bringing them firmly into the 21st Century!
The first of these machinery replacements was an upgrade to a DP-3810-A Pillar Drill; the largest column-style drill press of the current range.
As with all DIMAKIN pillar drills, its heavy duty build that ensures zero flexing even at its maximum capacity. Such a robust construction promises a long life of premium accuracy drilling.
The Pillar Drill DP-3810-A drill press is also inverter driven for ultra-precise speed adjustment. Speeds between 65 – 540 RPM (in low mode) and 245 – 2000 RPM (in high mode). Not only does this machine offer a high capacity with its MT4 spindle, but also an automatic quill feed operation if required.
The second machine that DeVille & Lear invested in was a BP-3026H; a Hydraulic Box and Pan Folder with an impressive bending length over three metres.
Used mainly in the fabrication of roofing flashing, the company are replacing a manual box and pan folder of similar length that was ‘probably forty years old when we got it 40 years ago!’.
However, after struggling to keep up with their growing business, the decision was made to retire the old machine, and invest. This new machine will not only take the company to the next level, but also remove the manual labour in their fabrication!
Here’s to a strong future relationship between DeVille & Lear and DIMAKIN. We look forward to helping build a workshop that will continue to evolve and modernise in the years to come!
