Due to increased orders and demand a new Mazak QSM200M lathe has been purchased and is set to be installed in June 2012. The new lathe has the capacity for 76mm dia. Bar through the spindle and is our 1st lathe with driven tooling. It is hoped that this new edition will complement our existing plant and allow us to remain at the forefront of technology.

In order to maintain our high standards of workmanship we have now employed a full-time Quality Inspector. Kenneth Joynes has joined us after a long career in Quality Inspection to help the production team achieve the exacting standards our customers expect. With a background from the Aerospace industry Kenneth is fully conversant with today’s Quality standards and able to compile comprehensive F.A.I reports as our customers request them. Working closely with our Quality Manager, and with the arrival of our new CNC measuring machine, we are confident Kenneth can improve on our inspection processes and ensure all of our manufactured components meet customer requirements.

Less than a year since completing the management buy-out of Southampton-based G&H Precision Engineering, managing director Steve Hill has increased its turnover by a third, invested in YCM five-axis simultaneous-machining technology and secured a UK agency for magnetic-deburring and polishing equipment. He says: “After working for G&H for two years, I had the opportunity to buy the business when the previous owners decided to retire. With the skill levels of the 10 people in the company, I knew that we could develop the customer base in aerospace, defence, telecoms, sensors and surveillance equipment, if we invested in the right technology. We have been able to produce components of even greater complexity and to combine operations by using five-axis machining techniques.”  
 
The YCM FX 30A vertical machining centre is used to machine a wide variety of mainly aluminium components, but also some that are made of super-alloy, stainless steel and machinable plastics.

Such has been the intricacy of certain aerospace parts that machining from solid has involved cycle times of more than 7hr. Complementing this machine are three other YCM verticals, five Bridgeport verticals and four Mazak Quickturn lathes. Due to the types of component being processed in the 6,000ft2 machine shop, Mr Hill installed a Spinner electromagnetic-deburring, finishing and polishing machine. This resulted in such positive customer comments concerning the standard finishes obtained that Mr Hill negotiated an agency agreement for this equipment. 
 
March 2011 
We would like to announce the employment of Matthew Vrotsos. Matthew is a time served Precision Engineer with extensive knowledge of CNC Milling and 
turning and we are sure he will be a valuable asset to the team. 
 
January 2011 
We are pleased to announce the installation of a new YCM 350A 5 Axis CNC Milling machine. We consider this to be a valuable addition to our existing 
machinery and enable complex parts to be manufactured in the most cost-effective way. To accompany the installation of the new machine the latest 
version of OneCNC has been upgraded on our computers to allow full 5 Axis simultaneous programming direct from CAD/CAM. 
 
If you would like to find out more about the capabilities of this new addition and how it will be of benefit to all our customers please do not hesitate 
 
November 2010 
A new Electro-magnetic De-burring and finishing machine has also been installed which will enable us to mass finish components to an extremely high  
standard and help to eliminate a large proportion of hand de-burring.
