The machining capability at Westin Drives has been enhanced by the arrival of a CNC lathe. With a little help from our team, it was delivered to our precision engineering department.
The benefits to customers of this sophisticated machine include:
The provision of CAD software on the lathe allows our engineers to design bespoke components for customers or to import their files in DXF format. After the completion of a job, files can be stored for repeat work.
It also means that a particular design can be manufactured tens, hundreds or thousands of times – and each finished product will be identical.
Matt Phillips, our machine shop supervisor said: "We are pleased that this new extension of our capability offers significant benefits to established and potential customers."
