Unibloc Hygienic Technologies Expands Capacity with CNC Machining Investment in UK

Unibloc Hygienic Technologies, Inc., a global leader in hygienic positive displacement pumps, AODD pumps, drum pumps, and other flow control products, has expanded production capacity at its Bolney, UK facility with a significant investment in additional machining technology. The investment continues UHT’s ongoing strategy of increasing production capacity to reduce production lead times and improve customer service.

UHT recently commissioned a new Matsuura H. Plus-405 PC12 horizontal CNC machining center. The Matsuura is a 12-pallet, four-axis machining center offering the capacity to replace three older machines with one, while increasing productivity. UHT selected this technology for its remote monitoring capabilities and advanced automation. The machine can run 24/7, allowing the facility to increase its capacity by 50-60% while occupying the same plant footprint as the previous machines.
