Almond Engineering has just taken delivery of a new Colchester Mascot V2000 manual Lathe. Managing Director Willie Scott commented that ‘Even in a factory such as ours, fully equipped with the latest CNC equipment, a high quality manual lathe is invaluable. Some jobs are simply quicker on a manual and it is great to give our apprentices extensive manual milling and turning experience before training the on the cnc machines.’
This completes a period of investment in the turning section of our precision machine shop aimed at increasing our capacity, flexibility and efficiency. Almond’s next planned investment is in additional CNC milling capacity.
