Grainger & Worrall (GW), the UK’s leading provider of high precision casting technologies, is to open a state-of-the-art, £5 million machining facility at its site in Bridgnorth, Shropshire. The new centre, which will be operational from early 2017, will centralise the company’s machining operations.

With a high-end, controlled environment, the new facility will further shorten the engine development process, while maintaining the highest output quality. The new machining facility will also help to deliver production-capable parts at prototype level, thus reducing lead times.

The 33,000 sq ft, temperature controlled machining facility will include seven vertical, two five-axis and six horizontal machining centres, alongside five CMM measuring machines. The state-of-the-art equipment will further enhance GW’s already world-leading production process.

Installed in a purpose-built environment, the all-new facility will allow GW to improve its measuring capacity and capability, while also housing, the existing equipment currently installed at the company’s site in Telford.
