Maylan Engineering is the latest high tech subcontract manufacturer to join the ever growing MTD Network. Maylan has an enviable reputation as a leading subcontract precision manufacturer that is renowned for its quality and pro-active approach.
Centrally located in Corby, Northamptonshire, Maylan has a plant list that includes high specification CNC turning and machining centres with a turning capacity up to 790mm diameter with a maximum turning length of 4m whilst its 3 and 4-axis machining centres offer a work envelope up to 1.3m by 640mm.
As well as being a prominent subcontract manufacturer, Maylan is also known for its own product, the Maylan Pallet Master. The Pallet Master turns a standard vertical machining centre, into a twin pallet VMC. The Pallet Master dramatically increases productivity, making it a valuable LEAN manufacturing tool. As well being designed to improve profitability, the Pallet Master has proved valuable in reducing operator fatigue.
The unit is easily and quickly retrofitted securely to the front of the machine, without the need for complicated wiring. One of the pallets is in the machine, and during that cutting cycle the other pallet can be unloaded and reloaded with components. After the cycle finishes, the pallets can be changed in seconds and the machine cutting material again. Installation is simple and only takes around three hours to complete. The Maylan Pallet System range will fit most manufactures machines and bespoke sizes can be designed to order. With something for every machine type and size, the Pallet Master typically increases machine tool output in the region of 35%. This can be considerably more depending on cycle and loading times.
