Gordon Ellis & Co invest in the latest CNC precision woodworking technology
Precision woodworkers, Gordon Ellis and Co have new 5-axis capacity available after the purchase of a new HOMAG Venture 316 CNC processing centre.
‘This represents a major investment for the company’ says Fiona Ellis-Winkfield, Managing Director ‘and ensures that precision woodworking remains at the heart of our business for many more years to come.’
Based in Castle Donington and employing over 120 people, Gordon Ellis and Co work with many prestigious names on a wide variety of products, such as high-end audio cabinets to automotive components and street furniture, and are conveniently located in the East Midlands, near to Derby and Nottingham.
Fiona added ‘our company is keen to maximise the potential of this new technology, along with our existing 3-axis CNC router machines. We are now actively exploring new business opportunities from a broad range of industries, to take advantage of this new available capacity.’
Mark Devereux, Operations Director said ‘the machine carries up to 14 tools allowing products to be completely finished in one operation. This eliminates the need to re-handle components and reduces time spent setting up. As a result, our customers will benefit from the superior accuracy, speed and finish that can be attained with this technology.’
Mark further explained ‘5-axis machines are also highly versatile, meaning we can now take on projects of greater complexity. Coupled with reduced scrap rates, we are confident that we can help customers bring new and exciting products to the market competitively.’
The company also employs an experienced design team who are on-hand to assist prospective customers with product development. Using CAD-CAM systems, they can create a design from scratch, working from a brief or drawing, or they can use the customer’s own CAD files to take a design idea quickly from prototype to production.
