Grenville enhances capabilities with Hurco VM20iGrenville Engineering (Stoke-on-Trent) Ltd, a leading precision sheet metal fabrication specialist, has invested £60,000 in a new Hurco VM20i three-axis vertical machining centre (VMC), which demonstrates the company’s ongoing commitment to continuous improvement and innovation in precision manufacturing. For over 40 years, the company has become renowned for excellence in precision manufacturing and bespoke fabrication services.

With the installation of the Hurco VM20i, it is now extending its range of capabilities further. This addition enhances the company’s already extensive portfolio of advanced machinery, which includes a CNC Bystronic and Trumpf fibre lasers, Bison tube laser, a range of Bystronic press brakes, and a Trumpf CNC punching machine.

The Hurco VM20i, a three-axis machining centre, has ‘state of the art’ features which will elevate Grenville Engineering‘s operational efficiency. Its heavily ribbed fine-grade cast iron frame, optimised with finite element analysis, guarantees superior stability and precision. Furthermore, the machine’s 12,000rev/min spindle (CAT 40 Big Plus) and Yaskawa Sigma V Digital AC Servos deliver outstanding speed and reliability.

With X, Y and Z-axis travels of 1,016 x 508 x 508mm and a table size of 1,168 x 508mm, the Hurco VM20i significantly enhances Grenville’s machining capabilities. The tool changer, accommodating 24 tools with a maximum tool diameter of 80mm and a maximum tool length of 250mm, ensures both flexibility and efficiency.

Stuart Rawlinson, sales director at Grenville Engineering, said: “Our continuous pursuit of improved in-house capacity and performance analysis drives our investment decisions. Acquiring the Hurco VM20i offers quicker turnround times, increased capacity, and enhanced control over our production processes, ensuring we consistently meet and exceed customer expectations.

“This investment is part of Grenville Engineering’s commitment to using cutting-edge technology to maintain a competitive edge and support growth. Following our previous investments in robotic welding and the Bison tube laser, the Hurco VM20i further strengthens our operational capabilities. An order for a new fibre laser has also been placed, with more details to follow soon.”

Grenville Engineering provides a comprehensive range of services, specialising in laser cutting, punching, metal forming, welding, assembly, machining, and finishing. The company prides itself in delivering superior quality and precision in every project, from intricate components to large-scale assemblies, to meet the diverse needs of its industrial customers.
