2D CNC Machinery has expanded its service operation out of the Hinckley Technical Centre and headquarters by appointing Matthew Rae, previously Lead Maintenance Engineer for an aerospace company, who brings control and software plus experience in turning, milling and grinding to the team.

Said Director David Johnson: “Matthew was an apprentice at a boiler manufacturer and then worked in maintenance departments in both subcontract aerospace and automotive sector firms prior to joining a leading UK aerospace and defence systems company.  This is an ideal background and experience level we need to support the level of technology we supply and in particular in support of maintenance contracts in the manufacturing cell and systemisation we have installed.”

2D CNC Machinery recently appointed Peter Colledge to increase customer sales support in the south in support of the Mitsui Seiki, Fermat, OKK, Reiden and Wele product ranges plus the specialist automation from the technical alliance between 2D CNC and the French company Halbronn.

In addition to supply of new machine tools and systems engineering, 2D CNC has the internal expertise to source, re-engineer, recondition, and retool grinding equipment such as its close co-operation with Erlson Precision Components in Skelmersdale.  Erlson is the market leader in outsourced produced turbocharger shaft and wheel rotor assemblies where 21 cylindrical, anglehead and groove production grinding machines have been installed, re-engineered and retooled by 2D CNC.

Said Mr Johnson: “Here Matthew’s experience and skill base in machine tool engineering is important to ensure machines supplied by us are fit-for-purpose and have the productivity, capability and reliability levels required.
