Aerospace

Absolute safety, total reliability and the need to manufacture components in lightweight materials are deemed the basic standards within aerospace.
Hence, machines that produce these parts, whether in titanium for engines or in aluminium for structures, need to combine high speeds, high accuracy and high power. These standards are easily met and often surpassed by Kitamura and GER.

Power Generation

The long term safety and reliability of the various forms of power generation plants, both traditional and renewable, provides UK manufacturers with the opportunity to manufacture large, heavy and robust components. Likewise, the machines needed to produce shafts, bearings and gearboxes for turbines, wind mills, hydro-electric and tidal systems need to be similar – please see our range of products from Toshiba, FAT Haco and KDM.

Petro-chemical

The harsh environments of this sector demand the production of components in hard and exotic materials. Inconel, Hasteloy, Duplex and other hard alloys are commonly used and the machining of these requires power, torque and rigidity or processes such as grinding. The larger Kitamura machining centres are often used for prismatic parts, with KDM / Toshiba / FAT Haco turn/mill centres being available for round parts and GER for grinding operations.

Automotive

The maximum effectiveness and long life of transmission, braking system and engine components relies on high accuracy and repeatability. Parts are manufactured in high volumes with a high degree of automation. The international experience gained by GER ( Spain ), Kitamura ( Japan ) and DMC ( Korea ) enables us to provide cost effective machine tools to this highly demanding market.

Medical

Generally small, extremely precise and highly accurate best describes the vast range of components in this industry – knee/hip replacements, body scanners, testing devices, inhalers and thousands of others. Accuracies measured in microns are common and the machines needed to manufacture these must be equally precise – we are fortunate to have these high standards on Kitamura machining centres and GER grinders.

Marine

From large diesel engines to the various metal structures, the range of components is too vast to be concentrated within a small number of dedicated manufacturers but is scattered amongst the vast number of UK sub-contractors. Flexibility, usually for small batches, is the key and the ease of operation and cost effectiveness of the range of Kitamura, DMC, FAT Haco, Toshiba and KDM products in particular ensures work can be taken on with full confidence.

Oil & Gas

The importance of keeping this market sector running without interruption relies on the use of consistent and reliable components. Hostile conditions determine that parts, whether large sub-sea valves in stainless steel or small aluminium control valves on-shore, are supplied fully certified and tested. Quality manufacture demands quality machine tools and the exceptionally long track records and development in Kitamura, Toshiba, DMC and FAT Haco products is self evident.

Construction

The conditions under which equipment is used in underground mines, quarries and on construction sites results in a relatively short life span of the finished units. High accuracy is not generally paramount, rather the demand for spare parts alongside the need to supply components at a very competitive price. KDM, Kitamura and FAT Haco combine productivity with prices to meet that demand.
