Middlesex Aerospace recently invested in two 5-axis multi tasking machines by Yamazaki Mazak, a long time partner and reliable provider.

Middlesex Aerospace has committed to a seven-figure investment with long-term machine tool partner, Yamazaki Mazak, to support the continued expansion of the company following an extended period of success.

The company has worked with Mazak for over twenty years and its latest investment comprises of two 5-axis Multi-Tasking machines, and one horizontal machining centre, complete with an expanded tool storage system.

The new equipment will not only reinforce Middlesex Aerospace’s existing in-house precision machining capabilities, but the increased capacity of the new machines will allow the company to further develop its offering to customers. What’s more, the new machinery will enable Middlesex Aerospace to operate lights-out un-manned manufacturing, 24-hours a day throughout the entire week; dramatically improving production volumes.

Laurence Foulds, Managing Director at Middlesex Aerospace, comments: “Our latest investment in machinery is one of the company’s most significant to date, and will allow us to support a number of new customers and programmes, as we continue to grow the business.

“Mazak has been our long-term machining partner for two decades. The work we undertake for our customers places a great demand on our equipment, and we know that Mazak machine tools – as well as the company’s Applications Engineering team – ensure we are able to deliver the incredibly high levels of accuracy and repeatability mandated by the aerospace sector.”

Alan Mucklow, Managing Director UK and Ireland Sales Division at Yamazaki Mazak, adds: “Middlesex Aerospace is a fantastic example of a British business taking the lead in the global supply chain and delivering exceptional results. After many years of working together, we are delighted to be able to help the company take a step closer towards realising its long-term strategic goals, through the purchase of three new state-of-the-art machining centres.

“The aerospace supply chain is faced with a unique array of application engineering challenges, given the stringent accreditations that govern the industry, and our latest 5-axis and horizontal machining centres are more than capable of working to the tight tolerances required.”
