How have Entech increased CNC milling capacity for all our clients here in the South, South East and South West regions? Well, in the middle of everything else going on we have remained reasonably busy thanks to a brilliant client base mixed in with a bit of luck. So we have been cautiously looking for ways to increase capacity in the CNC Milling area. Initially the obvious option was to increase man hours and open the plant longer which was under consideration but then looking around turned up an interesting alternative. The opportunity to purchase a second Dugard 1000 Y Plus vertical CNC milling centre!
If you have previously looked at the machine shop page, under CNC Milling section you may have noticed that we already have one of these and it is a very good machine. This made it an obvious choice or a no brainer as the cliché goes. Read on and I will briefly explain why…
Our operators have bult up years of experience working with our existing CNC milling machine and so all of that will be readily available. We also have extensive tooling for existing jobs and all the associated programs ready to run as well, not to mention the maintenance routine in place, and they are very reliable. The Dugard 1000 Y Plus is an excellent size too. This means we can handle up to 1000mm in length x 500mm x 600mm all with a very small footprint.
Our Dugard CNC milling machine is commissioned and has already been pressed into service so as I say exciting times here at the moment. It is great to be able to talk about such an achievement too and it is surprising how projects like this lift the spirits. Obviously not everyone will be adding CNC milling (or CNC turning machines for that matter) but I do hope you can see positive projects happening and are thinking about all the great things going on in your organisation as well. Although no one would argue it is a difficult time, it is also vitally important to maintain a balanced outlook and remember the glass is not always half empty. If nothing else the south coast is a lovely area to live whether it be south east or south west we are lucky enough to have some of the best beaches and beauty spots in the country.
Above all try to stay safe, let’s look out for and support each other whilst following the government guidelines. Best wishes to you all during this extraordinary time.
