New CNC Lathe Investment

We are once more investing in enhanced Capability and Capacity. A DMG MORI SEIKI type NLX 2500SY.700 CNC Lathe has been purchased and will be commissioned during January. This state of the art additional machine will help reduce lead times for CNC turning requirements and will allow us to continue to offer fast, efficient, cost competitive machining solutions for both small and medium batch sizes. Talk to Nigel or James for more information and a competitive quote.

New Appointment

Amdale is pleased to appoint its new Sales and Estimating engineer, James Francis, BSc (Hons).

Working alongside John Cook, James will be instrumental in developing Amdale’s Aerospace machining department. James has engineering in his blood, having worked for his father’s company since he was old enough to wind the handles on an old Bridgeport mill. After funding his degree by getting his hands dirty on the shop floor, James then spent two years in a quality department working to upgrade the company to AS9100 Rev C.

He is very excited about the challenges that his new job in the sales department at Amdale will bring and is looking forward to putting the company on the Aerospace map!

From semiconductor chips, to the most advanced medical devices and the most sophisticated drill parts used in oil exploration, precision engineered products play a vital role in the development of the overall economy.

So what will happen in 10 years time when all of the highly skilled engineers we have, retire? The British industry will need 100,000 new graduates in science, technology, engineering and mathematics subjects every year until 2020 just to maintain current employment numbers.
