Rowan Precision Ltd, with the help of a grant, under the ARG Recovery Scheme, are reaping the benefits of a new CNC Machine from leading provider Citizen Machinery. The latest in modern technology machine the Miyano BNE-51MSY is helping to increase capability, whilst decreasing our carbon footprint.
Birmingham based Rowan Precision have been producing exceptional turned parts for a multitude of industries for the past 38 years. After a management buyout in 2021, the new Management Team are now looking to grow the business and expand their customer base into new industries with the help of their latest investment.
The MSY model from Citizen, Miyano BNE-51MSY, has increased capability with an X3 axis +Z3 axis on the back spindle and superimposed control for 3 tool simultaneous machining. With faster cycle times, this is drastically cutting down lead times for Rowan Precision’s customers. In the past, the firm would subcontract work when dealing with a packed full order book, however they are now able to gain more control and increase the quality of their work with the latest investment.
Established in 1984, Rowan Precision has always prided itself on having highly skilled technical engineers and having the know-how to make their clients’ ideas a reality. Dealing with an array of sectors including medical, aerospace, automotive, lighting, defence, electronics and telecommunications Rowan has the ability to use their decades of knowledge working across multiple sectors to suit customer needs.
The Directors confirmed:
“Our latest investment from Citizen Machinery allows us to bridge the gap between our Ø32mm M32 sliding head machines and our 65mm Mazak Hyper Quadrex 150MSY.
Equipped with the twin turret and partnered with the Z3 and X3 allows the machine to perform sub-spindle operations while the two turrets are working on the main spindle.
This creates huge opportunities for reducing cycle times and reducing customer costs. ”
Better yet, the investment is helping the firm to reduce their carbon footprint with more scope to achieve a machined product in one go, as well as the machine being more energy efficient. As the company heads for continuous growth with the latest investment, they now plan to “get the Rowan name out there”, bring on apprentices and grow their employees’ skill set in-house.
