Grainger & Worrall (GW), a UK provider of high precision casting technologies, is to open a new £5 million machining facility at its site in Bridgnorth, Shropshire. The new centre, which will be operational from early 2017, will centralise the company’s machining operations.
With a high-end, controlled environment, the new facility will further shorten the engine development process while maintaining the highest output quality. The new machining facility will also help to deliver production capable parts at prototype level, thus reducing lead-times.
The 33,000ft2, temperature controlled machining facility will include seven vertical, two 5-axis and six horizontal machining centres, alongside five CMM measuring machines.
Installed in a purpose-built environment, the all-new facility will allow GW to improve its measuring capacity and capability, while also housing the existing equipment currently installed at the company’s site in Telford.
Mark Davies, plant director at GW Machining said: “Coming at an investment of more than £5 million, our new machining facility will help to improve product quality and will also provide our staff with the state-of-the-art equipment to develop the projects of tomorrow.”
