Additions to Optiv Performance line broaden application potential with larger measurement range. Leading metrology and manufacturing solution provider Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence today unveiled its latest multisensor coordinate measuring machines (CMMs), the new Optiv Performance 663 and 664 Dual Z. The multisensor concept of the Optiv Performance line enables a variety of sensor configurations for tactile and contactless measuring and scanning tasks in a single system. Different workpiece features can be inspected by the appropriate sensors without reclamping, saving valuable measuring time.


Radan’s reseller in Germany, 3D Concepts GmbH, is holding a special Open House event to demonstrate the important role that the world’s most powerful sheet metal CAD/CAM software is playing in Industry 4.0. Dubbed the fourth industrial revolution, Industry 4.0 is the global name for the current trend of automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies, to create “smart factories.” To be held at the Technische Akademie Esslingen on November 29 and 30, the ‘Manufacturing and Forming Technology – Industry 4.0’ event is aimed at managers and skilled workers from companies with manufacturing and forming technology.


In June 2016, contract machining firm Norjon Precision Engineering upgraded its multi-tasking, turn-milling capacity with the addition of a Japanese-built Okuma Multus U3000 2SW from UK agent, NCMT. Equipped with a Y-axis on the column and a motorised B-axis tool carrier as well as a 12-station lower turret, the twin-spindle machine is capable of 3+2-axis machining, although fully interpolative 5-axis machining is an option. At its 14,000 sq ft factory in Gosport, the subcontractor undertakes CNC turning and turn-milling, gear cutting, grinding and 5-axis prismatic machining for a varied customer base spanning the food, marine, printing, yachting and power generation sectors.


What started out as a hobby manufacturing spare parts for their own classic British motorcycles has turned into a successful business for Chris and Ian. From their small workshop in a quiet Cornish village they are supporting a growing customer base with replacement parts for vintage motorcycles, in many cases improving on the original design. Their ability to manufacture their own parts was threatened when Ian had a serious scuba diving accident, but thanks to a ProtoTRAK controlled lathe from XYZ, CPC Engineering was born, moving from manual machines to CNC their hobby and business is up, running and looking to expand.


Orizon Aerostructures is building something truly unique in American manufacturing with a multi-million dollar investment in six (6) additional ECOSPEED F2060 High Speed Machining Centers and an automated 12 Pallet Shuttle System from the Starrag Group of Switzerland. This is a manufacturing success story that began, when Orizon bought a first ECOSPEED F2060 for their Grove, Oklahoma site in January, 2016. It was clear to Orizon that the performance and flexibility of the ECOSPEED’s 30,000 rpm, 120 kW high performance spindle with 6,300 mm (X) 2,500 mm (Y) and 670 mm (Z) is enhanced by the inclusion of the Sprint Z3 parallel kinematic machining head.


Bridgwater-based TMB Patterns, a leading supplier of tooling for the thermo-moulding industry has ordered a surface grinder from RK International Machine Tools on the back of positive business outlook, increased work from its customers in the thermo-forming sector and a diversification into sub-contract machining for the nuclear and aerospace sectors. The surface grinding machine Perfect PFG120-200AHD double column-type machine (1200 mm by 2000 mm maximum grinding surface), is one of the largest machines of its type sold by RK International Machine Tools in the UK. 


As mission-critical functionality goes, products manufactured by ExoTec Precision don’t come any higher on the list. ExoTec are one of only a few companies in the world working with the rare exotic material, Beryllium, and their high quality optical lenses are currently deployed on a number of satellites. They also have components on their way to Mars as part of the ExoMars programme, including the Schiaparelli landing craft.
