Attwater has invested £100,000 in two new CNC machines.

The UK manufacturer of industrial laminates and insulation materials has purchased two Haas TM-3P vertical milling machines, replacing two older units. In addition to working faster, the TM-3Ps also consume less power than Attwater’s previous machining centres, cutting energy bills and boosting the company’s green credentials.

The machining centres include ten-station automatic tool changers with a 1 m bed and will be employed for Attwater’s work in the aerospace, power generation and industrial sectors.

Production Director Andy Goode says the advanced Renishaw probing systems allow machine operators to find datum points more quickly and size the tooling considerably faster than previously, resulting in less downtime.

We are very pleased with the results so far,” he says. “The probing system is phenomenal – it simplifies the operation and is more efficient.”
