A Hartford DBC 6340W CNC long bed milling machine represents our latest investment in modern CNC technology for the shop floor. This £750k investment takes capital investment in machine tools to £3m over the past five years and demonstrates MacTaggart Scott’s commitment to continuous improvement of our production capability. To support this investment and other CNC machine tools in the machine shop, we will shortly be investing a further £35k in a CNC toolsetting station.
The machine was installed and commissioned during April and May, and started production in June. The addition of this machine greatly enhances our capability to manufacture larger workpieces and enables us to meet a broader range of customer requirements.
