Southernsbroadstock acquires two new CNC machine centres

Published: June 3, 2021

Southernsbroadstock welcomes the first of two new universal machining centres, ordered to satisfy almost any drilling, routing and edge banding requirements for the foreseeable future.

This investment in our facilities represents our commitment to remaining agile in the industry as one of the UK’s premier FF&E providers. The production refinements these CNC machines offer will support us as we develop our services and expand into fresh sectors.

It is important for us to bring manufacturing options in-house to ensure clients have access to a diverse product range. In this respect, CNC technology has become irreplaceable for Southernsbroadstock. We reviewed a series of manufacturers but felt the Morbidelli P200 CNC machining centre provided the best high-quality solution for our current and future requirements.

Our team worked closely with Diego Piersanti of SCM to develop the most appropriate technical and economical solution. SCM’s Pro-Space solution proved beneficial when optimising space within the factory. The 18 tool holders installed directly on the machine will lead to reduced production run times. Process optimisation, precision machining, quality and a reliability guarantee with SCM were the deciding factors for us.

This machinery will be instrumental in achieving our ambitions and growth as a business, with a view to exploring new markets.
