New lathe at James Heal to reduce turnaround times

Aug '16
UK based manufacturer of textile testing machinery James Heal has invested £150,000, in a new high precision CNC lathe to improve and grow its machine shop capabilities.

“The new CNC machine in the James Heal machine shop, will improve quality, reduce production time and positively impact capacity in readiness for growth,” the company said.

According to James Heal, due to the new lathe, components which would previously have been made on two separate machines can now be completed on one, thereby positively impacting cycle times.

The new lathe will be used with particular focus on their flagship instrument, the Martindale, an abrasion and pilling tester, primarily used to test textiles.

James Heal manufacturing manager Owen Wantling said, “The introduction of the new lathe will cut down set-up time drastically, which will allow operators to train on other areas.”

“It is an investment into the quality and efficiency of our components, as well as into a more flexible workforce,” he added. (AR)
