The UK's manufacturing output grew while total orders remained solid, according to the latest CBI monthly Industrial Trends Survey. The latest survey of 505 companies found that export order books reached a two-year high, suggesting that the depreciation of sterling since the end of last year may be feeding through to stronger overseas demand. Manufacturers in the chemical sector accounted for just over half the improvement in export orders with less than one-third of the 17 manufacturing sub-sectors reporting export orders at below normal levels. Despite the improvement in exports, total order books mainly stayed unchanged, yet remained comfortably above the long–run average. Output growth remained at a healthy pace.


Sheffield Forgemasters’ position as a global steel rolls supplier has been reaffirmed after it secured two contracts worth more than £4.5m with Russian and German steel companies. Despite the downbeat media still bleating on about Brexit, Sheffield Forgemasters has certainly rolled its sleeves up and got on with things. The multimillion pound deals are for a range of work and back-up rolls that will be supplied to Russian steel giant Severstal and to Germany’s only tinplate manufacturer, ThyssenKrupp Rasselstein. This deal is the second overseas deal in as many weeks for the Sheffield company after it announced a £23M contract for castings for US military submarines.


The year-on-year growth at Hainbuch UK now sees the workholding specialists move its UK operation to a new purpose built office in Cannock, Staffordshire. Only a mile from the previous site, the impressive new 2000sq/ft facility will provide Hainbuch with a designated meeting room, demo area, training facility and it will also provide significantly larger stock holding capacity than the previous building.


VISI and Edgecam, from Vero Software, will be demonstrating their high speed waveform roughing strategy at Seco Tools’ forthcoming Inspiration Through Innovation advanced manufacturing best practice event. Mike Fleming, Seco Tools UK’s Sales & Marketing Manager says a total of 12 “challenging live machining demonstrations” include showcasing their existing turning, milling and hole-making cutting tool solutions along with launching new ones. "The mainstay of the event on September 21 and 22 involves 40+ Technical Partners, which include leading machine tool builders and best-in-class CAD/CAM, work-holding, tooling, automation, CNC Training, cutting fluid, and metrology and inspection solution specialists.”


As the leading manufacturer of high-quality measuring and testing technology, Blum-Novotest will be presenting brand new products and application examples for all matters regarding 'reliable sensor technology for Industry 4.0' at AMB 2016. At the Stuttgart event in Hall 1, Stand H71, Blum will be showcasing solutions relating to analogue contour scanning, reliable measurements with coolants and greater productivity through process-integrated roughness measurements. 


Leading aerospace and multi-axis machining subcontract specialist, HEC Precision Ltd., invests in its fourth Doosan multi-tasking turning centre from Mills CNC. HEC Precision Ltd, established in 1993, manufactures high-precision, complex components and assemblies for a diverse range of industry sectors and, most notably, for a growing number of blue-chip aerospace and defence customers. The company offers its customers comprehensive manufacturing services and solutions from prototypes, pre-production and production, and is ASEN 9100 and ISO 9001: 2008 accredited as well as holding quality approvals from a number of leading aerospace OEMs.


A leading manufacturer of point of sale and display equipment is looking to expand its range of CNC machining capabilities, and says Alphacam Advanced Router, from Vero Software, is integral to its plans. A.S.H. Plastics already uses Alphacam for high quality, accurate machining of its range of sheet material, and working on complex parts that it would not be able to undertake without it. Joint Managing Director David Archer says it is especially valuable for prototyping, as they can generally get a prototype on the machine ready for cutting, within 20 minutes. “When we were programming manually it could take up to an hour, so there’s considerable time saving.”


A Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire based engineering company is re-inventing itself from being a general sub-contractor to a company specialising in prototyping, bespoke component manufacture and project design engineering with a particular expertise in the medical and aerospace sectors. Having overhauled its premises and production layout Colt Precision Ltd has also invested in the first of a number of versatile machine tools – an Engineering Technology Group supplied Quaser MV154EH 3 axis VMC with a Nikken 4th axis rotary table giving it an on-demand additional capability. 


When R&G Precision Engineering Ltd encountered difficulty achieving the desired precision levels on a new machining project with its existing machine tools, the Northamptonshire subcontractor called on the expertise of FANUC to help out.  The family owned subcontract company has a proud history of manufacturing complex precision components for customers in the defence, aerospace, medical, scientific and telecoms sectors, but when the remarkably tight tolerance parts came through the door, the existing line-up of machines struggled to cope.
