Epping based Goss Springs, UK’s leading manufacturer of springs and pressed parts has announced a new investment in its manufacturing capability.
Nick Goss explains that they have recently taken delivery and commissioned a new Wafios spring coiling machine and have a second similar machine on trial. This development is all part of a new investment plan by the company to ensure that it is able to retain its cutting edge manufacturing capability in the future.
“The Wafios machine which is manufactured by the leading machine tool manufacturer located in Germany will bring several improvements to our business,” explains Nick.”
The machine is fully programmable and the new coiling machine will make it easier to produce conical and bi-conical shapes and adjust for load compensation.”
The improved accuracy and repeatability lends itself perfectly to the lower volume batch run end of the business which Goss particularly prides itself on being able to service and will thus contribute to lower lead-times through quicker set up times and turnaround times and lead to an even greater degree of flexibility in the service offered by the company.
