One of East China’s premier engineering academies has placed an order for a British-built Zenith grinding machine from Rochdale-based PTG Holroyd.
Valued at £1.3 million, the machine is scheduled to be shipped to China ready for installation in summer 2022.
The Zenith 400 uses ‘diamond hard’ plated cubic boron nitride and provides roughing and finishing capabilities on one machine. With the advantage of twin grinding wheels, the academy staff will be able to complete both rough- and fine-grit (finish) grinding in one seamless operation.
PTG Holroyd Regional Sales Director, Mark Curran said: “We are delighted to have secured this significant order for one of our industry leading Zenith 400 machines.
“The engineering academy specialises in the development of ultra-precise components for a number of sectors, as well as small batch production of specialised components and prototypes. As such, it required a machine that offered the highest levels of precision helical grinding, as well as exceptional levels of versatility.
“After considering machines from a number of our competitors, the Zenith 400 was chosen for its ability to meet all the helical component design, build and production needs of the academy.”
