Specialist aerospace parts manufacturer, TWM Technology, has taken delivery of two new vertical CNC milling machining centres and associated tooling and workholding. This forms the latest stage of a £250,000 investment programme designed to improve capacity, capability and efficiency at the company.

This type of machine is central to production at TWM Technology, which specialises in the manufacture of high-end hermetic metal packages, microwave and RF electronics housings, and other components.

The larger of the two new machining centres has a metre-long machinable bed which will allow better fixturing and substantially increase production capacity. The considerable size will allow lights-out running to maximise efficiency.

The second machine will add to TWM Technology’s quick turnaround prototyping service, which provides support for customers’ engineering departments.

The current investment programme includes not only new machinery, but also investment in personnel with several new faces joining the team.
