Dynamatic-Oldland Aerospace is installing a DMG Mori DMC 340 U RS4 Giga Milling Centre in a new purpose built unit at its Swindon facility, the first machine of this type in the private sector in the UK.

With a capacity of 3,400mm in X, 3,400mm in Y and 2,000mm in Z, this machine has four pallets, is capable of handling workpieces of 16t, has a rapid traverse rate of 60m/min and a tool magazine holding 180 tools each of which can weigh up to 30 kg.

James Tucker, managing director of Dynamatic Limited UK said: “The versatility of this machine in the manufacture of complex parts in aluminium alloy, steel and titanium alloy fits well into our existing machine pool. The machine, expected to be delivered this June, will help us to serve our existing and new customers and deliver larger and much more challenging parts.”

Ajay Gururaj, project manager at Dynamatic-Oldland said: “We have a very good relationship with DMG Mori. The quality of the German manufactured machines is exceptional and the combination of precision and high speed they deliver is a capability which is difficult to find. Reliability is good with hardly any downtime, whilst both service and spares are delivered very efficiently. Local support is available in the UK and in Bangalore where we can have access to telephone support or, if necessary, an engineer can be on-site in two hours. Because of the cost of the DMC 340 U RS4 the support we get will be a key factor as we will need to keep the machine running.”
