M-CNC aims to be centre of excellenceBridgwater-based M-CNC (www.m-cnc.co.uk) has invested £2.75 million in DMG Mori machine tools and automation to underpin its ambitious growth plans.

Founded in 2011, the company specialises in the manufacture of high-quality components for the aerospace, motor-sport, chemical, oil and gas and leisure sectors.

Leigh Howarth, business development manager, said: “We are purchasing eight DMG Mori machines, which will give us the ability to cut large five-axis parts up to 2.5m x 750mm.

"We are completely automating our existing product lines, and we are introducing a rapid-response cell for a 10-day turnround of orders. Our aim is to become a centre of excellence for the South West.”

M-CNC already employs 17 people (with four apprentices) and is actively seeking more skilled engineers to work in its ‘state of the art’ facility.

To complement its investment in DMG Mori machines, the company is also investing in Edgecam CAD/CAM software and Javelin ERP and MRP.

This will integrate with the DMG Mori CELOS software and — together with further investment in modular storage, tooling and inspection equipment — will enable the company to work towards Industry 4.0.

Mr Howarth added: “We aim to achieve zero defects by engaging the workforce in the complete manufacturing cycle. We are already very close to that target, and our mantra is to ‘be the best we can be at all times’.

"The investment we are making will motivate our staff and inspire them to take full advantage of the capabilities of the advanced machinery we are installing, enabling us to deliver excellence to our customers.”
