Latest technology for spring manufacturing capability
To increase product range and capacity and to take advantage of new technologies available, Longcroft Engineering invests heavily in new equipment as part of our ongoing continuous improvements programme.
Our latest acquisition arrived in August 2015 – a Wafios FMU 25 CNC spring and wire forming machine. Longcroft is one of the first manufacturing company in the UK to have purchased one of these machines – which is one of a new generation of Wafios CNC machines.
The new machine has enabled Longcroft to further increase capacity and product range, as the machine operates at a faster stroke rate than our existing CNC machines and can produce wire forms with complex bends and loop ends thereby eliminating a range of secondary operations previously done manually.
