Paul Platt, Operations Manager said “Having this machine back in the factory greatly enhances our capacity for large complex rings. We have ongoing order coverage for a range of Titanium and hard metal rings and casings. We considered the purchase of a new machine to assist with our expansion plans, but these machines are solid robust plant, which we can rely on for both consistency and reliability. We completed a full risk mitigation, prior to commencing the overhaul, having the machine back in our production plans brings a new dimension to our shop floor”.
