Holroyd 8EX Rotor Milling Machine and CS700E Tool Management Center Ordered by Chinese Air Compressor Manufacturer

December 27, 2017

One of China's leading manufacturers of air compressors has once again demonstrated its confidence in the ultra-precise technologies offered by UK-based Holroyd Precision.

Only last year, the Chinese screw compressor specialist had invested in one of Holroyd Precision's industry leading Zenith 400 helical profile grinders. Now, just over 12 months later, the business has returned to Holroyd for an 8EX rotor milling machine and a CS700E tool management center. Newly developed, the CS700E machines have been designed especially for the grinding of high accuracy profile forms on finish milling cutters of up to 700mm in diameter. Scheduled for shipping in March 2019, the combined order is valued at several million pounds.

"Our EX Series rotor milling machines have earned global acclaim for their high speed, high levels of precision and unrivalled build quality," commented Holroyd Precision's regional sales director, Steven Benn.

"The 8EX model, as chosen by this customer, represents a new generation in high capacity rotor milling. Offering precision milling of particularly deep helical profiles, it brings exciting opportunities to organisations that wish to machine highly accurate, large diameter compressor rotors. By also purchasing the CS700E, the customer will benefit from unprecedented control of the profile forms they use."
