Specialist pattern makers to the oil industry David Scott and Company Limited of Huddersfield approached Daltons Wadkin in order to increase their CNC machining capacity and to update their production methods.
Resulting from this Alex Dalton arranged a meeting with proprietor David Scott during which the unique space efficient 5-axis technology of the Greda Diva was highlighted together with the machine’s comparatively large Z axis capacity. In spite of its performance and capability the Greda Diva occupies no more than 9 square metres of floor space.
Mr Scott already has a machine shop containing many conventional as well as CNC machines including existing Wadkin models and this factor together with their Huddersfield location which is comparatively close to Daltons Wadkin’s home base in Nottingham contributed to Mr Scott’s decision to place the order.
The company’s principal clients are manufacturers of pumps for the oil industry, a fairly unique application but one which requires David Scott to have the technology and production methods to meet fluctuations in demand which can at times be difficult to meet.
Alex Dalton commented “We are delighted to have the opportunity of placing our first Greda Diva with another locally based family business. This is a high quality and very versatile CNC machine which ticks all the boxes for a manufacturer like David Scott. We managed to arrange for Greda engineers to install the machine in company with our own engineering team and the purchase has already had a substantial and beneficial influence on their business.”
