TEK4 building new technical centre

TEK4 plans to open a brand new, purpose-built technical centre in late summer 2019.

The facility is located in Blaby, Leicestershire, just six miles from the company’s current site. TEK4’s new centre will offer good accessibility, with the M1 motorway just 10 minutes away.
Enhanced customer facilities will be at the heart of the operation, which is set to be five times larger than TEK4’s existing site, providing the capacity to deliver up to 10 machines per month. Among specially designed areas will include those for research and development, and another for running trials and demonstrations. A temperature-controlled inspection area will also feature. The new development will facilitate continued growth at TEK4, enabling it to exceed customer expectations.
TEK4 was founded by Jason Duffin in 2002, who continues to run the business alongside a team of engineers and support staff who have underpinned the company’s success. Duffin has spent his working life developing special process technology for gas turbine component manufacture. He co-founded MJ Technologies Ltd, and was MJT’s managing director until 2001 before he left to establish TEK4. MJT subsequently became the Winbro Group.
TEK4 specialises in fast-hole drill (FHD) or high-speed drill (HSD) EDM machines for drilling straight and shaped cooling holes in aero and IGT blades, vanes, segments and other components. Solutions combine EDM and laser systems for FHD and ceramic coating ablation; laser for drilling and cutting operations; and ECM for the STEM drilling of deep cooling holes in gas turbine components.
