We continued our machinery upgrade programme in November with the delivery of a HAAS VF6 CNC Mill – “at over 10 tonnes this is by far the biggest machine we have had at Magor” said Tony Francis Operations Director. “It’s part of our ongoing drive to upgrade our machine fleet to support the requirements of our customers”.
“The HAAS enables us to provide another level of production capability with a bed capable of handling plates of up to 1.8m allied to superior cutting rates – we can therefore handle bigger projects, with more accuracy without multiple resetting” Tony added.
Nigel Jones, CNC Team Leader continued, “It was a major challenge that required specialist support to get “the beast” installed. That done we have commissioned it and are focused on mastering its capabilities this side of Christmas. It has caused a lot of excitement in the team to have such a step up – Santa came early to Magor!”
