The primary focus of the machine was to focus on the longer bearings for the marine sector.
Our current maximum length of tube material, which we could produce and then machine into useable parts, was 1 metre. This new machine will allow us, in time, to machine up to 4 metres long!
This means we have quadrupled our capacity with just one machine.
Not only have we significantly increased the length of material we may be able to machine, this is then coupled with the large diameter we can machine with our new purchase.
It will allow us to machine up to 2 metres diameter. We can currently machine up to 1.6 metres in diameter but with a shorter length.
This machine allows us to not only machine at a longer length but at a large diameter also.
Once we have developed our manufacturing department to cater for our increased needs, we would be more than happy to show you our new machine, whether on a video or in person.
