Norbar Torque Makes Major Machine Tool InvestmentNorbar Torque, the world's leading torque tools specialist, has made a major investment in machine tools in order to increase production capacity and quality.

The Banbury based company has invested more than £1.6 million in new machinery, which includes the acquisition of two new Mori Seiki NTX mill-turn machines which are being used to machine electronic and gearbox products, including transducer shafts.

Norbar Torque has also invested in two Gleason CNC gear shaping machines which are being used to generate gear components for the company’s hand torque and powered torque multipliers.

Martin Reynolds, Manufacturing Manager at Norbar Torque Tools, commented: “The investment in the Mori Seiki machines has supported our existing turning centre and mill turn capacity.  Since the machines went into operation we have seen a 45-60% improvement in cycle times over existing machine processes.”

He continued: “In addition, the investment in new Gleason machines is in line with our company policy of modernising our gear generation facilities. We are confident that both of these investments will make a significant impact on our production capacity and ever increasing demand for quality in our products.
