Building on our continued growth, DRB Group are pleased to announce the next stage in investment.

To enhance our expanding business, meet the challenges faced by our customers, and the growing complexities of the projects we are involved with, we continue to invest and grow the capabilities of DRB Group to accommodate these demands.

We are therefore excited that we will be taking delivery of two new machines at the beginning of October. The machines arriving include the Doosan VM 750L and Doosan Puma SMX 3100. The SMX 3100 has the additional robot module that automates the loading, on and off, of components into the machine.

Providing high-tech machining capabilities

The investment of the VM 750L replaces existing aged machinery. This places DRB in a much more efficient, safe and effective operating position. The 3 axis (with an additional, after market 4th axis) CNC milling machine, referred to as a multi-axis, will increase production efficiency, by providing high-speed manufacturing and increased production accuracy.

The benefits of the VM 750L will enable us to work to greater accuracy and reduce downtime. Breakages and repairs, with our previous machines was increasing in frequency and becoming an on-going issue. With our growing production and expanding project complexities, this was unacceptable for DRB’s growth and supporting our customers. The VM 750L will be an excellent addition to DRB’s capabilities. 

Placing DRB Group at the forefront of machining technology

The SMX 3100 is a CNC mill-turn machine, which integrates the capabilities of a vertical machining centre and horizontal turning centre into one platform, offering significant automation capabilities.

Not only does the SMX3100 have the ability to Turn and Mill in the same setting position, but with the added robot module that DRB have invested in, it will allow projects to be automatically machined.

This will lead to reduced operator labour time and increased production efficiency and the ability to monitor and plan production scheduling.

The investment of these new machines will further progress DRB Group as a leading precision engineering operation. We will have the ability to take on complex engineering machining projects. This will keep DRB Group at the forefront of machining technology and further support our customers with greater flexibility.

DRB are constantly striving to improve the working environment for employees. In addition to the added capabilities, the machines provide improved safety features, including the LEV units for metal working fluid vapour. 

With the ability to support larger and more complex precision engineering projects, DRB will be capable of providing continued development of our customers’ ever-changing production requirements.

We look forward to growing with our existing customers and working with new ones, across the range of industry sectors that include pharmaceutical, rail, food and beverage, energy, chemical and construction.

Our in-house engineering capabilities enable us to work on projects from the initial evaluation stage to deliver complete turnkey projects. Our team of engineering experts, will review your current production, understand your production development objectives and develop integrated, long-term, innovative engineering solutions.
