Manufacturing the 'Made in Britain' VersaDrive V35 compact magnet drill occurs in stages.
To begin, the machine body must be cast from raw aluminium at a UK based foundry. More information and video footage of this process can be found here.
After the initial casting, the raw aluminium frame is powder coated before being precision machined in our on-site vertical CNC machining centre at our Sheffield production facility.
Once complete, the machined casting makes its way through a series of manufacturing production cells, the processes of which have been value stream mapped to ensure KAIZEN efficiency, quality and productivity.
Fitting components in a methodical set of pre-arranged stages, the V35 takes shape.
First the Sub-assembly sees a variety of branding and preparatory elements combined before attachment of the magnetic base.
The unit then moves on to the next stage in the process for main assembly, electrical connection, testing and packaging.
Once completely hand build, tested and ready for shipping, the product is dispatched to be used to speed up metalworking and solve challenges throughout the industry.
