P&R New Machining Centre
Patterson & Rothwell has invested circa £160,000 on a new Machining Centre from leading manufactures DMG Mori. The DMC 850V will allow Patterson & Rothwell to cut larger projects at an increased rate offering our customers competitive lead times to launch their plastic injection moulding products to market.
Maximum load capacity is 1000kg enabling P&R to offer increased flexibility to our customer base with regard to tool size.
The 850V is a rigid design with fixed table and elevated X-slide. The machine bed is made from mineralic casting and the stand from cast iron.
The tool magazine can take 20 cutting heads at any one time and options for 30, 60 or even 120 are available. The spindle can run at 20,000 RPM.
It represents a significant investment and is testament to the view that the toolroom and its staff are a key component to the company now and in the coming years.
