NCMT wins £7m machine tool order

Bromford Industries, a specialist manufacturer of aero engine and landing-gear components for the global aerospace supply chain, is in the process of installing nine Okuma MU-6300V mill-turn centres at its Birmingham factory. The Japanese-built, five-axis, vertical-spindle machines are suited to volume production of nickel-alloy aero-engine parts to tight tolerances. The machine-tool order, placed on Okuma’s UK agent NCMT, is valued at £7m. Seven of the machines have already been installed and are producing components, with the remaining two due for delivery in the fourth quarter of 2017.
