Posted on 19 Aug 2011 by The Manufacturer

Birmingham-based steel stockholders and processor specialists Abraservice UK have invested £250,000 in a new CNC machine – the 3-axis Hartford Block Buster.

The company is facing increasing demand for specialist steel components from OEMs and companies in the maintenance sector, and the investment will provide it with a better range of capabilities so they are able to meet the extra demand. Abraservice UK manufactures a broad range of finished and semi-finished steel components.

The newly commissioned and fully operational CNC machine allows faster machining times, leading to a higher throughput of work and increased production capacity, capability and efficiency. The company is now able to produce batch components more accurately and with a faster turnaround time. Also included is the ability to better produce bespoke, complex engineered parts for its customers – placing the company in a competitive position.

Adrian Hance, divisional director at Abraservice UK commented on the investment: “The key benefit our customers appreciate is our level of service. We have a good reputation for offering high quality specialist steel components and this investment ensures we continue to offer better options and more timely solutions to our customers.”

Abraservice UK supplies to a wide range of markets, including; quarrying, mining, glass, paper and metal recycling as well as waste collection, agricultural equipment and for special projects in mechanical engineering and defence.
