Israeli aerospace subcontractor Cyclone Engineering has placed a £1m order with Marwin Production Systems in Wolverhampton for a high-speed, horizontal machining centre, due for delivery early next year.

The machine, a Marwin Automax II, is the first to be equipped with twin 3.1m pallets instead of the standard 2.1m, allowing Cyclone to machine a wider range of aluminium parts. Variable preload on the 40,000rpm, 40kW spindle is intended to ensure efficient cutting throughout the speed range.

The 5-axis CNC machine allows complex cutting sequences needed to produce the patented Gridlock range of aerospace parts, which Cyclone is making under licence to Tolo in the US.
