Shot-peening specialist plans to open new technical centre

Sandwell UK, a shot-peening specialist based in Towcester, is set to increase production with the opening of a new technical centre.

The facility will feature integrated robotic systems and structured light 3D scanning, which will incorporate software developed in a co-operative project with the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC).

The technical centre will enable Sandwell to continue its growth in surface engineering, allowing the company to work with more complex components.
