New flow line at Heller UK

More than £2m has been spent upgrading the Heller Machine Tools manufacturing plant and headquarters at Redditch, UK.

The administrative and applications engineering departments have benefitted from a comprehensive makeover, while a new customer area for machine demonstrations has been added. Most notable of all, production output of horizontal machining centres has risen by 30%.
As part of the latest initiatives, activities in Redditch have expanded into the assembly of five-axis machines (in addition to four-axis models) for world markets. As part of the expansion, Heller installed an 11-station Strothmann flow line and new logistics system for the manufacture of horizontal machining centres. At every stage of the manufacturing process, work carried out on the machines is documented, providing full traceability as required in order to comply with the factory’s ISO9001 accreditation.
