Accrington-based, hydraulic tools specialist, Allspeeds, has invested over £150,000 in a new vertical machining centre at its Accrington manufacturing facility in Lancashire.

The Hartford Plug & Play Series MVP-16 will streamline production of larger Webtool cutting tools, significantly reducing manufacturing lead times, the company explained.

Webtool hydraulic cutting tools are used by ROVs, as well as in integrated systems for IWOCS emergency disconnection and other applications. Webtool is one of the few cutters capable of providing rapid simultaneous cutting of umbilical multiple fluid transfer jumpers, electrical lines and tension wire assemblies. In maritime applications the cutters are a key feature of winch and towline emergency cutting systems.

“The MVP-16 is a step-change in our production capability for handling large cutting tool projects,” says Keith Elliot, managing director, Allspeeds. “In addition to its increased machining capacity, the Intelligent Machining Centre will allow us to reduce product development times by integrating it with our design software to provide a completely integrated CAM environment.”
