Aerospace firm invests in new machinesAE Aerospace, which recently moved to larger premises at Network Park in Birmingham, has invested £1.25 million in six new Yamazaki Mazak machines to boost its manufacturing capabilities (www.mazakeu.co.uk).

The company has earned a global reputation for its precision-machined parts, and it has customers in the aerospace, marine, defence and the advanced-engineering sectors (www.aeaerospace.com).

It has seen a seven-fold increase in sales in the last five years, and significant spending on new machinery over the last 12 months has helped it to boost its capacity to meet growing demand.

The company has acquired three Variaxis J500/5X five-axis vertical machining centres for complex milling and a VCN530 four-axis mill to double its capacity on larger milled components up to 1.25m long.

The shopfloor has also benefitted from the addition of a VCP400 vertical machining centre to help meet a specific export order, and an Integrex J200 Smooth horizontal multi-tasking machine was acquired to increase the company’s five-axis mill/turn capacity on smaller complex components.

AE Aerospace managing director Peter Bruch concluded: “We now operate 21 Mazak machines with an average age of under five years.

"Investing in new technology is a key component of our business strategy, and these new Mazak machines feed into our on-going business improvement programme.

"We will continue investing in people, plant and machinery to ensure that we can take the business to the next stage of growth.”
