Doubling our milling capacity

In the last three years we have experienced sustained growth in higher volume aluminium milled parts leading to an investment that supports our strategy of working on a single shift whilst investing in automation and lights-out production capacity. This strategy is designed to help us compete with countries with lower labour costs and encourage our customers to re-shore their products to the UK; a trend which is becoming increasingly more common.

Our investment in a new Mazak 5-axis milling machine has doubled our milling capacity, cut lead times, and given us the flexibility to run some jobs 24/7 unmanned.

  • Mazak Variaxis i300 AWC – 5 axis milling machine
  • Simultaneous 5 axis movement can mill contoured surfaces
  • 18000 rpm spindle for high speed cutting
  • 40 pallet automation enables 24 x 7 unmanned running
  • 205 tool capacity allows rapid changeover between parts
