Shannon Precision Engineering choose Nakamura Tome to create innovative solutions for global OEM’s

Shannon Precision Engineering, is an Irish engineering company with over 40 years of experience, specialising in providing innovative solutions for global OEMs – recently purchased a Nakamura-Tome WT 150 II. They were looking for a CNC machine that could increase repeatability and accuracy.

They turned to ETG due to our backup service and the technical support we provide our clients. The optimised package deal available with the Nakamura-Tome machine sealed the deal.

Upon delivery, ETG helped install and program the WT 150 II, which was greatly appreciated. Shannon Precision Engineering was pleased with the ease of set-up and the advanced CNC control features on NT Smart X. Plus, they benefitted from monitoring all current situations whilst turning.

Thanks to their purchase, they have significantly decreased their cycle times, but at the same time, they have radically increased the accuracy of the parts being produced. Previously, they were manufacturing parts on two machines, which took 15 mins but now, with the Twin Turret Machine, the cycle time has dropped to 4.5 mins.

As a result, the Nakamura-Tome allows Shannon Precision Engineering to produce far more efficiently and accurately.
