It’s not easy staying at the forefront of technology innovation. Roscomac has had a clear vision that has encouraged investors into the business.
Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership helped Roscomac to fund the purchase of their latest Matsuura MAM72-35V multi pallet 5 axis machine.
MD Joe Martello explained:
“Roscomac has always believed in the benefits of utilising the latest technology and equipment. We already had some fantastic success using our Fastems cell, linked to over a dozen other milling machines. But we recognised that we needed the latest technology to improve manufacturing productivity.”
“We took the big decision to invest in five new Matsuura multi pallet full 5-axis milling machines, which will help us deliver our long-term focus on improving component quality. They will also bring down component and process costs, and realise our vision of 24 hour production, what we call ‘lights out’ manufacturing.”
“We know that the financial support that Coast to Capital has given us will bring this aim closer to reality, to the benefit of all our clients around the world.”
The production quality and efficiency benefits have also been proven over the last three months.
Roscomac plans to install another two Matsuura machines in the near future.
“Roscomac successfully supports a large, diverse, prestigious customer base across the globe. They operate in a range of industry sectors including aerospace, military, transport, medical and oil and gas. We believe the investment Coast to Capital has provided for new equipment will help Roscomac achieve their goal of improving quality and driving down component costs.”
