WDS reinforces stock availability with production machine upgrade

WDS reinforces stock availability with production machine upgradeLeeds-based WDS Components Ltd has strengthened its stock availability of standard parts and components by upgrading its on-site production machinery.

The acquisition of a new Miyano BNE51-MSY fixed head CNC lathe supplied by Bushey-based Citizen Machinery UK, increases WDS’ on-site production capacity of large diameter components, such as swing bolts. Three-axis super-imposed machining means the machine can manufacture completed products without the need for a changeover. Combined with faster cycle times, this has enabled WDS to raise its throughput to increase stock availability, as well as same-day fulfilment of large OEM orders.

WDSThe new machine carries an increased tool capacity and a much faster set-up procedure. This has removed the need for a staggered production planning and the more-flexible machine set-up has removed production run delays, maximising WDS’ lights-out manufacturing capability. This has increased stock availability across WDS’ entire product range.

Ensuring its on-site manufacturing capability includes the latest production machinery available is part of WDS’ drive to support its stock guarantee programme. WDS’ offer confirms same-day shipping even for large order quantities. If the total amount ordered can’t be supplied the same day, WDS will provide a 10% price discount on the remaining units.

The company’s commitment to British manufacturing includes a highly trained, in-house engineering team. For WDS, ‘made in Britain’ helps ensure full product availability and also guarantees high quality manufacture.

Adam Broughton, WDS production manager, said: “The new CNC lathes can machine workpieces to extremely tight tolerances with very high repeatability. Our machinists are extremely experienced and most of our products are developed by our in-house R&D engineers, which ensures the highest product quality.”
