Share this page:

Despite the current recession hitting manufacturing Companies involved in the North Sea Oil & Gas sector, AJT Engineering Ltd are enhancing their already significant CNC machine shop capability with the acquisition of four CNC machine tools.

Managing Director Ken Gauld explains to his team that not only do we have to be ready to react to Customer demands and expectations when the
industry picks up again but we also need to be in a position to allow future diversification into other maybe less volatile markets, hence the need to ensure that we have a solid programme of investment in modern technology, even during these difficult times, allowing us to increase efficiency and drive our cost base down to meet the challenging markets of the future.

These latest machine tool acquisitions include:-

Hankook13N flatbed CNC lathe with a turning capacity of 1300 mm diameter by 4 meters between centres, capable of turning components up to 8000 Kg in weight.

Doosan Puma 400 and a Doosan Puma 480 slant bed CNC turning centres with live 3rd axis allowing multiple machining operation to be carried out on components up to 650 mm diameter by 2000 mm between centres.

State of the art 4th generation DMG-MORI 5 axis machining centre, with a 63 pocket auto-toolchanger, allowing single set-up machining on 5 faces of a component up to 1000 mm x 1250 mm x 1000 mm at a maximum table weight of 2200 Kg
