 Ford’s Bridgend Engine Plant in Wales has built its 20-millionth engine, 37 years after the first engine was built in September 1979. Linda Cash, vice president of Manufacturing, Ford of Europe joined Bridgend Engine Plant manager, Ian Pearson, in marking the achievement saying: “Bridgend has a proud record of high-quality engine production and I’m delighted to celebrate this significant milestone with the team that builds them. "Today the plant builds a range of high-tech EcoBoost products, and we continue to invest in Bridgend, with the plant confirmed to build the next generation of fuel-efficient petrol engines.”


The Engineering Technology Group has further expanded its programme of machine tool automation and loading/unloading products with the addition of pallet changers supplied by the Midaco Corporation. Since adding Halter robot loaders to its portfolio, ETG has experienced high levels of interest in automation and to complement its significant turnkey design and installation expertise it has now added pallet changing products.


A new and innovative prototyping and prove out service now being offered by Coventry based Hyfore Engineering is being used by a range of manufacturers who will benefit from integration of skills and processes coupled with cost savings for product development and pre-production projects.


Exhibitors impressed by the high expertise of visitors and their propensity to invest / Large number of innovations and further developments presented for the first time. "An extremely positive mood and smiling faces are clear indications of the success of AMB 2016. On Thursday, which marked the half-way point of the five-day exhibition, we recorded the highest number of visitors ever on one day at AMB," enthused Ulrich Kromer, President of Messe Stuttgart. This was also confirmed by the 1,469 exhibitors at the International Exhibition for Metal Working (13 to 17 September 2016) in Stuttgart. A total of just under 90,000 trade visitors were again recorded on the five days.


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. 


For over 40 years Shand UK has been designing and manufacturing hose and pipe coupling systems for rubber reinforced hose and reinforced thermoplastic pipe for the offshore industry. Based in Stallingborough, the company has been assisting the World's major manufacturers in solving application problems of hazardous or unpleasant products, in extreme environmental and thermal conditions. Machining large couplings and hose tails, the company turned to Ward Hi-Tech for a turning solution that would improve its production facility.
