MaS Precision are delighted to announce that we have recently invested in a new CNC sliding headstock machine from Star GB.
Expanding on our existing SR-20J from Star GB which has served us faultlessly for over 4 years, our new investment is the SR-32J, a sliding headstock lathe with a larger capacity to produce parts up to 35mm in diameter. The decision to expand our machining capabilities with more Star machinery comes after successfully securing a new overseas order with an automotive manufacturer which is expected to operate for up to 7 years.
The SR-32J offers the best-in-class operability, productivity and efficiency – featuring an independent sub spindle complete with a fully programmable C Axis for improved overlapping and reduced cycle times. Alongside the Turbo 3-36 bar feeder from FMB Machinery, our new investment increases our capacity to autonomously produce high-precision parts in large quantities.
To complement the purchase, our Engineering Technician Ben Smith and Trainee CNC Setter Reece Joseph attended a 3-day training course at Star GB’s facility in Derby. The course focussed on Star NC Assist, a programming text editor for Star machines which allows CNC programs to be generated quickly and accurately.
Alistair MacDonald, Area Sales Manager for Star GB in the Midlands added, “MaS Precision is a very forward-thinking precision engineering company who are a delight to work alongside. Their facilities are advanced and modern, the team is highly knowledgeable and their commitment to sustainability and the environment is second to none.”
In the future, MaS Precision has plans to invest in another 32mm machine to support our rapid growth.
