Enhancing Our Capabilities with New £60,000 CNC Vertical Milling Machine

Significant Technological Advancement at Grenville

We are pleased to announce a significant technological advancement at Grenville Engineering. Our latest acquisition, the Hurco VM20i, marks a pivotal investment of £60,000 and represents the company’s first Vertical CNC milling machine. This strategic move underscores our ongoing commitment to continuous improvement and innovation in precision manufacturing.

A 40-Year Legacy of Excellence
For over 40 years, Grenville Engineering has earned a prestigious reputation for excellence in precision manufacturing and bespoke fabrication services. With the integration of the Hurco VM20i, we are bringing more essential capabilities in-house. This addition enhances our already extensive portfolio of advanced machinery, some of which includes CNC Bystronic and Trumpf lasers, Bison tube laser, a range of Bystronic press brakes, and a CNC Trumpf punch.

State-of-the-Art Features of the Hurco VM20i
The Hurco VM20i, a 3-axis machining centre, has state-of-the-art features designed to elevate our operational efficiency. Its heavily ribbed fine-grade cast iron frame, optimised with finite element analysis, guarantees superior stability and precision. The machine’s 12,000 RPM spindle (CAT 40 Big Plus) and Yaskawa Sigma V Digital AC Servos deliver outstanding speed and reliability.

Enhanced Machining Capabilities
With an X, Y, Z axis travel of 40 x 20 x 20 inches (1,016 x 508 x 508 mm) and a table size of 46 x 20 inches (1,168 x 508 mm), the Hurco VM20i significantly enhances our machining capabilities. The tool changer, accommodating 24 tools with a maximum tool diameter of 3.1 inches (80 mm) and a maximum tool length of 9.8 inches (250 mm), ensures both flexibility and efficiency.

Commitment to Excellence
Stuart Rawlinson, Sales Director at Grenville Engineering, commented, “Our continuous pursuit of improved in-house capacity and performance analysis drives our investment decisions. Acquiring the Hurco VM20i offers quicker turnaround times, increased capacity, and enhanced control over our production processes, ensuring we consistently meet and exceed customer expectations.”

Ongoing Investments in Cutting-Edge Technology
This investment is part of Grenville Engineering’s commitment to utilising cutting-edge technology to maintain a competitive edge and support growth. Following our previous investments in robotic welding and the Bison tube laser, the Hurco VM20i further strengthens our operational capabilities. An order for a new Fibre laser has also been placed, with more details to follow soon.
