“The Best Available CAM Package”
G E Precision Engineering Ltd | Northampton, United Kingdom
The ISO: 9001 registered company is embedded in concept, design and consultancy projects with its customer base. Despite the Motorsport expertise levels of the directors, the company made a conscious decision during the recession to explore new markets.
There is never more of a truism than ‘you get what you pay for’ and this is definitely the case at GE Precision Engineering (GEPE). When the company opened its doors for business little over four years ago, like most start-ups the Northampton based company purchased equipment within its budget constraints.
Service for the Motor Sport industry
The acquisitions included a number of second hand machine tools and low end CAM software to program its parts and the truism was duly noted by Company Founder and Managing Director Mr Garry Edwards. As a motorsport engineer, Mr Edwards left his post at Ilmor to set up GEPE to service the Motor Sport industry. To work in this industry, high specification machine tools, CAM software and highly qualified and experienced staff are a pre-requisite.
“Programming times have fallen by anything from 30 to 60% and when our average programming time is approximately 16 hours, it shows how invaluable hyperMILL® is to us.“
Garry Edwards, Company Founder and Managing Director
Best decision for the business
As Mr Edwards confidently states: “The hyperMILL® package from OPEN MIND is undoubtedly the best decision I have made for my business. Four years ago we initially acquired a CAM system based on cost and even during the training period, I knew it wasn’t capable of meeting our needs. Nine months later we bought our first seat of hyperMILL®.”
