Productive Machines, an Industry 4.0 company developing automated solutions for milling processes, has announced its membership with the National Manufacturing Institute Scotland (NMIS).

Together the two organisations will deliver advanced machining technologies, optimise milling processes, and offer tap test training and services to the manufacturing and engineering community.

Based at the Advanced Manufacturing Park Technology Centre in Sheffield, Productive Machines identifies dynamic properties of machine tools, allowing them to simulate and optimise milling processes. By doing so, customers are able to benefit from increased machine tool productivity, extended tool life and eliminate iterations to reach production quality parts on the first cut.

Additionally, the firm utilises tap testing to provide predictive maintenance services, ensuring optimal performance and minimising downtime. A combination of software, hardware and training programmes enable engineers to leverage this technology effectively.

As a member of NMIS, Productive Machines gains access to an extensive network of industry experts, cutting-edge facilities, and collaboration opportunities. This membership also strengthens the company’s commitment to delivering innovative solutions for sustainable machining by becoming part of the NMIS community.

"We are thrilled to become a member of the National Manufacturing Institute Scotland," said CEO Erdem Ozturk. "Productive Machines was born as a spin-out of the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) so we understand the value that we can bring to manufacturing by collaborating with research centres to deliver efficient machining solutions. Joining forces with NMIS provides us with the resources and expertise to further enhance our offerings and reach more end users.”

Stephen Fitzpatrick, director, National Manufacturing Institute Scotland (NMIS) Digital Factory said:  “We’re delighted to welcome Productive Machines as a new NMIS member. Their expertise in machining dynamics aligns with our aims to enable a fully connected, digital manufacturing environment that can benefit manufacturers in Scotland and across the UK. We look forward to working together with Productive Machines’ process optimisation solutions for CNC machines within our Digital Factory, particularly in areas of vibrations and part distortions.”
