AVPE invests in increased “Sliding Head” CNC turning capacity

AVPE has recently placed an order for a new Citizen 7 axis A32 CNC turning centre for delivery in October, together with an option to purchase 3 further machines over the next 24 months. AVPE is supplying a package of component for the A350 program into Magellan Aerospace and this investment reflects the planned ramp-up in the Airbus build program.

Commenting on the investment, Ian Humphries (Production Director) said, “The Citizen machine provides a significantly reduced cycle time for volume sub-32mm components and is ideally suited for the Airbus/Magellan program.”
