Our New DMG MORI NLX 2500
This month at Barrow Engineering has seen us taking one more exciting step into the future by installing our new DMG MORI NLX 2500! This marks another step in our continued commitment to innovation, launching us into the new age at Barrow Engineering.
The NLX has 1250mm between centres and a fixed steady rest, with a maximum turning diameter of 366mm. This machine compliments our staple base repetition machine cell with newer tooling and technologies, faster machining capability and more efficient setups. All in turn, reducing pricing and turnaround times.
A word from our General Manager, Shaun, about the new investment: “This machine was initially an upcycle of one of our older style Y-Axis machines to help with increasing our factory efficiencies and generate newer technologies throughout the factory.
“After viewing the smaller NLX, Craig (CEO) and I were very impressed with the construction of the machine and how it would complement our repetition cell. We decided to increase the machine size and bed turning length capability to open Barrow up to a wider range of work.
“This machine increased our shaft machining capabilities along with any job pieces requiring programable centres and fixed steady. It’s great to see the team sink their teeth into this machine and see some chips flying!”
We aim to have this machine running 24 hours, six days a week, with plans of adding a robot unloader.
