Production Engineering, Tooling & Machinery

Sharp Focus

Back in 1959, Walter Morette was persuaded by a friend to invest $40,000 in a saw blade servicing company. The business progressed at a steady pace, but it was the company’s first encounter with Vollmer that helped to drive the business forward. Pre-dating the inception of Vollmer USA, Walter purchased the first Vollmer machine flown into the USA in 1969 - not being one to wait for the slow boat.

Aerospace & Defence Quality

Established in 1978, Excel Precision Group operates from two modern facilities in Gloucester and Leeds, which together house over 30 CNC wire and spark erosion machines. This capacity, along with its accreditations, make Excel one of the leading EDM subcontract operations in the UK, with particular emphasis on aerospace and defence.

Magnesium & More

For some time now, magnesium has increasingly found its way into medical technology. This material has better mechanical properties than polymers; it is porous and bio-absorbable and thus avoids a physically demanding follow-up operation. However, the machining of magnesium requires maximum expertise, both by the user and by the machine manufacturer.
