Sophisticated 5-axis universal milling center expands leading machinist's capabilities in notable ways, Newnham Engineering reports
Worthing, West Sussex -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/21/2015 -- Newnham Engineering, one of the United Kingdom's leading machinists, announced a major new equipment acquisition in the form of a DMG Mori DMU 50 5-axis machining center. The technologically advanced CNC machine will help the precision engineers sussex clients trust most provide even faster, more responsive service. One of the most flexible and sophisticated universal milling units on the market, the new DMU 50 will significantly augment what already stands as one of Sussex's most impressive collections of machining equipment.
"We're proud and excited to announce that we have added a new DMG Mori DMU 50 5-axis milling center to our lineup," Newnham Engineering Managing Director Eric Newnham said, "This amazing piece of equipment further burnishes the proud DMG Mori legacy, delivering unprecedented flexibility for a wide range of milling work. The DMU 50 can finish some of the most complicated projects in a single, precise pass, and it is going to allow us to even better serve our customers."
For decades, machining metal into custom-specified shapes meant relying on the skills of experienced machinists who directed every single cut and milling pass. In the aftermath of World War II, the first glimmerings of the computer age began to transform the industry, with punch-card controlled mills and lathes increasingly improving on and replacing those dependent on trained human operators.
Newnham Engineering was founded in 1967, a time when, even given the progress of this fundamental revolution, traditional machining methods were still very much the norm. From the beginning, the company stood out on the Sussex landscape through a total commitment to "machining excellence" laid down by founder Reginald Newnham.
Although the firm's founder lived to lead it through only five years of rapid expansion and growing reputation, his original vision has guided the company since. Pursuing the utmost in machining excellence through the decades since has meant staying at the cutting edge of technology and always seeking ways to provide even better custom manufacturing service to customers throughout Sussex.
That resolve and the company's successes led to a series of moves, over the years, to more spacious facilities, along with a long list of significant equipment acquisitions. It has also produced an impressive record of highly satisfied customers, with Newnham Engineering today enjoying enduring relationships of 40 years or more with many clients.
Newnham Engineering's acquisition of a cutting-edge DMG Mori DMU 50 milling center therefore expands upon a long, striking tradition. The powerful new tool will help the cnc engineers sussex companies depend upon the most tackle the toughest projects with even greater responsiveness, precision, and reliability. Pictures of the new machine, along with further information about Newnham Engineering and its services, can be found at the company's website.
