The Advanced Forming Research Centre (AFRC) is a collaborative venture between the University of Strathclyde, Scottish Enterprise, the UK Government and leading multinational engineering firms. The centre’s objectives are to work proactively to disseminate skills and technology that will offer a different perspective to manufacturing methods by the use of forming techniques.

DMG Mori has supplied four machines to the AFRC a CTX beta 2000 TC 5-axis turn/mill, a NLX 2500SY 700 an HSC 75 linear 5-axis machining centre and a DMU 125 FD duoblock 5-axis mill/turn.

With this range of machines, the centre is able to manufacture and carry out research and development activity for complex components, tools, dies and moulds, with the aim of reducing costs and lead times and improving functional performance.

DMG Mori is a strong supporter of Scottish industry, where its technology is in use at companies such as Fife Fabrications, C.A. Models, Vert Rotors, Castle Precision and Hunting Energy Services, where the reliability and precision of the machines helps these companies manufacture complex high value parts economically.

Steve Finn, Managing Director of DMG Mori UK says, “We are committed to the development of high value manufacturing in the UK. By supporting the AFRC we can bring our expertise to bear within the advanced manufacturing industry, throwing a new light on the radical techniques that are possible. Companies using our machinery in Scotland manufacture parts ranging from heavy duty threaded pipes for oil and gas to high precision rotors where 5µ accuracy is essential. Achieving positive outcomes for this range of applications relies on the know-how available from DMG Mori and our commitment to excellence in machine design, manufacture and service.”
