Advanced manufacturer to invest in robot cells?

Have your say

Advanced manufacturing company X-Cel Superturn is considering boosting output by investing in state of the art robot manufacturing cells.

The Sheffield-based company installed a pilot cell at its X-Cel AMP subsidiary on the Advanced Manufacturing Park, which has given it the capacity to increase production by 25 per cent.

Now it is considering setting up more cells to boost production further.

The pilot cell is designed to pick up forgings, fully machine them and inspect them using a CNC Coordinate Measuring Machine before marking them to the customer’s requirements.
