Our Tool Room Is On The Move
The tool room at our Stalbridge HQ has been repositioned within the factory to create more space for our specialist automotive spring making projects and to house an abundance of new machinery acquired over the past nine months. Throughout last year the tool room was quiet with very little going on but towards the end of 2020 everything exploded with loads of new project work and, in line with an influx of inherited business, the acquisition of six welding frames that came with it, two of which requiring completely new tooling and one with tooling that needed extensive modification in order to comply with our standards.
We also added our 3 axis XYZ vertical machining centre and an EDM wire eroder which we’re in the process of refurbishing. We’ve also returned to running two shifts from 6.00 in the morning until 10.00 at night to keep pace with everything.
