Firm has invested over £200,000 into a new Doosan 4-axis machining centre
A leading Coventry aerospace supplier is tapping into the ‘march of the robots’ to help it capitalise on 20% growth over the last twelve months.
Arrowsmith Engineering, which is part of the AS.G Group, has invested over £200,000 into a new Doosan 4th axis machining centre and robotic cell that will help it boost production speed and increase capacity by 50%.
The company is using ‘lights-out’ manufacturing to run a precision engine part 24-hours a day, seven days per week, supplying more than 200 components every month to customers based in Spain and the US.
Integrating robots into the process has removed the need for a second machine, freeing that up to cope with new contract wins that have seen turnover soar to £7.5m and the workforce grow a further 10% to seventy people.
