We are pleased to announce the installation of our first 4-axis machining centre at our factory in Leek, Staffordshire. The XYZ 750 LR machine was installed in May 2019 and will step up our CNC machining capabilities, increasing opportunities in our UK markets.
The 750 LR machine will be used to machine a range of high precision parts and with a travel axis of 750 x 440 x 500 mm the machine will handle the majority of work coming through the factory. The new machine compliments the range of Haas and Colchester CNC lathes currently employed at our factory and is part of an ongoing investment programme to increase the capabilities and capacity of the business.
The new machine will allow the business to undertake more complex milling tasks quicker, more accurately and, ultimately, at lower cost to its customers.
Managing Director, Cristina Talens comments: “We are delighted to be investing in a new CNC machine at our factory in Leek. The new addition will help us to service a larger customer base and reach out to new markets.”
The Leek Gears business has been undergoing a strategic growth project focusing on developing key areas of the business to enhance the service we can offer to our customers. This includes offering gearbox refurbishment as a service, a complete factory 5S project and a strong focus on strategic marketing and brand awareness.
