Bridgeport Milling Machine

The Series I Standard features an innovative airflow cooling design that uses no external fans to prolong bearing life and prevent expansion from heat build-up. A full range of accessories are available, including optional chrome-plated ways and gibs to ensure that the machine will last a lifetime.

Bridgeport Specification

Bridgeport (new)

Bridgeport Series I Built the Bridgeport Way The long-term reliability of a Series I mill is the result of its design features, the quality of its components, and the craftsmanship of its hand-scraped ways and precision ground fits. Every Hardinge-Bridgeport knee mill is built as though we’re going to use it ourselves. That’s why the resale value of a Bridgeport mill remains consistently high. The “bargain” imitators can’t say that. Our competitive prices are a result of our higher volume— not from building a cheaper machine. Rigidity starts with the main frame components of a machine, and for this reason, the strength and damping qualities of gray cast iron was chosen. Patented 2J head The unique and patented air cooling system of the “2J” head ensures that any heat buildup in the spindle bearings, belt or quill area is kept to an absolute minimum. This is achieved by air being drawn into the belt housing and past the spindle bearings by the rotation of the drive belt. It is then exhausted out of the head assembly at the top of the casting. Distortion and inaccuracy due to excessive heat rise is kept to a minimum by maintaining the operating temperature within 20 degrees fahrenheit of ambient temperature.

This also results in increased belt and bearing life, as well as more consistent accuracy. Also, with no external cooling fans, vibration is reduced and the ongoing maintenance or threat of a fan failure is eliminated. Fans also frequently require a step-down transformer if the machine is wired for power greater than 110 Volts. Series I One-shot lubrication Adequate lubrication ensures a long accurate life for the machine. It also reduces maintenance and makes the machine more sensitive and easier for the operator to use. A metered, centralized system lubricates all of the ways and screw assemblies of the machine. Operation of the system by a single lever saves the operator time and makes it easy to always provide the correct amount of oil, predetermined by a series of metering valves built into the system. Many competitive systems do not meter lubrication, which allows the oil to flow to the point of least resistance. Thus one sliding member may receive more oil than another, possibly causing excessive wear to the area that is not getting properly lubricated.
