MaS Precision are delighted to announce that we have recently invested in a new 6-spindle lathe.

The latest addition to our versatile facility is a new Wickman 1″-6. The Wickman 1″-6 is a multispindle lathe, with fast and smooth production rates and highly consistent accuracy. It has been fitted with a Peterson shaving attachment, allowing it to hold an impressive 10-micron tolerance.

Our facility currently holds six Wickman machines, renowned in the industry for their exceptional speed and advantage for high volume production, whether they are producing parts for the gas, electrical, hydraulic or automotive industries. The introduction of our latest Wickman machine replaces one of our smaller machines in response to securing a new overseas customer which requires increased machining capacity.

To complement our continued investment into Wickman machinery, we are looking to appoint a Training & Development Manager with experience in operating and maintaining these types of machines, and pass their knowledge onto new apprentices which we are hoping to look into next year.

Our continued investment has allowed for a synergy between our Wickman and StarGB machines, enabling us to deliver both small and large volumes of high-quality precision turned parts in a flexible and versatile way.

In the future, MaS Precision has plans to invest in further machinery to increase our capacity and capabilities.
