Maquinas Danly Ltda., (meaning "Danly Machine, Inc." in Portuguese), began in 1972 as a joint venture between Danly Machine Co., Inc. of Chicago, IL and the then South American representative for Cincinnati Milacron, Marcel Lemouche, a Belgian national living in Brazil.  As a result of this joint venture, tooling components such as guide pins, bushings, and mechanical springs were produced and shipped to the U.S. for use in die sets produced by the different service centres.  In 1986, the Danly family (who controlled Danly Machine Co., Inc.) decided to sell their interest in the company.  This decision also resulted in the sale of the European Division and the South American Division.  Mr. Lemouche and his son Michel, purchased the rest of Maquinas Danly Ltda. (the South American Division), from Danly Machine Co., Inc.

Today, Maquinas Danly Ltda., or it's subsidiaries, has manufacturing facilities in Brazil, Germany, France, Mexico, and its Sales & Distribution facility in the U.S.  These manufacturing facilities supply guiding components to existing manufacturers of Die Sets or Mold Bases worldwide.  Because of the Lemouche family commitment to the Tool & Die industry, these plants and factories are equipped with the very finest in Machine Tools and utilize the latest manufacturing practices and information systems.  Other companies talk "World Class", but with MDL, you get the benefit from a group of companies that ARE WORLD CLASS

MDL are specialty manufacturers of Guide sets for "Type 2" operating conditions (shown left), with the flexibility to vary ball cage pre-load from full to partial pre-load to completely free.

MDL offers two major lines of tooling components. The D line of components, interchangeable with components from Danly/IEM*, and the L line of components, interchangeable with components from Lamina**.

The D line of components consists of Ball Bearing and Plain Bearing guiding components (including Bronze Plated and Graphite Impregnated Bushings), and Mechanical Springs (same sizes, colors, and load ranges).  These stock MDL components are interchangeable with components from Danly/IEM*.

The L line of guiding components consists of Straight Ball Bearing Pins, Straight Sleeve Ball Bearing Bushings, and Ball Cages. These stock MDL components are interchangeable with components from Lamina**.

MDL Guide sets are available in the following variations:

  • Ball-cage type and plain (bronze-plated or steel in plain type)
  • Press-fit and demountable
  • Special stripper plate bushings and ball cages
  • Guide Pin Diameters from 25mm to 80mm
