ETG Ireland ended on good note last year with the delivery of three machines in the last quarter of 2019.

A trio of machine installs gave Engineering Technology Group (ETG) in Ireland a strong finish to 2019, with the company predicting a rise in demand for twin and triple turret technology and smaller 5-axis machines over the next twelve months.

The machine tool supplier delivered a Nakamura AS200LMYT to Limerick Institute of Technology’s training facility and a Quaser MV184 EH vertical mill to a long-established customer in Northern Ireland. A Nakamura AS200LMSY sub-spindle lathe also headed for Sligo, to a mould-making specialist investing in new technology to help it increase its market share in the aerospace and medical sectors.

“The start of 2019 was very strong and, despite a dip in the middle due to Brexit uncertainty, we were able to record a good last quarter with the three installs and five further sales highlighting customer interest for machines that can deliver greater control, speed and quality,” explained ETG Ireland MD Jamie Fletchmoore. He added that software solutions, especially for Mastercam and Cimco machine monitoring, were very popular and the prospects for 2020 are looking really good. Fletchmoore continued: “The group acquisition of HK Technologies is also an exciting new development for our business and gives our customers in Ireland direct access to a trusted supplier of 3D printing technology, EDM machines, balancing systems, laser marking, micro-finish capability and gear-grinding solutions.”

ETG Ireland, which opened in 2014, provides all the group’s products, including sales, service, training and support. It recently recruited a new software support engineer to help cope with the growth and demand for Mastercam and Cimco, with plans for an additional sales engineer to cover the Northern counties of Ireland.

According to the company, the twin and triple turret technology has a lot of potential as the client gets a completed part in one set-up. Furthermore, additional turrets allows for the user to have multiple tools available to the machine, thereby reducing costly set-up times. Fletchmoore concluded: “We are also seeing a trend for smaller, faster 5-axis machines.”
