Greaves 3D invests in precision engineering

30 Oct 2012

Peterborough based engineering firm, Greaves 3D Engineering, recently announced it is branching out into precision engineering.

The company has heavily invested in the latest technology to support the new branch of its business. Greaves has invested in machine tools, 3D CAD and CAD CAM software and is looking to provide its customers with a complete service, starting from design consultancy through to the production of finished manufactured parts.

The move into precision engineering has led to purchases of DMG Mori Seiki Machine tools including a DMU-50 5 axis milling machine and a CTX-510 CNC lathe with live tooling.

In addition, further purchases have been made. These include an XYZ Machine Tools SMX-3500 CNC bed mill and an SLX-355 CNC lathe.

The company’s CMM machine and suite of inspection equipment will facilitate the move into the precision engineering market.

Greaves will also be introducing 3D Rapid Prototyping to its business in 2013.
