We are proud to announce that the first fully forged plough points have been produced on our Beche hammer whilst the impressive hammer itself and associated equipment and systems have been fully tested and certified. We are now undertaking operator training and structural tests on components in advance of commencing full scale production. As a further exciting development we will be launching forged plough shares in time for the spring 2016 season.
In order to increase capacity for forging tool manufacture we have recently taken delivery of a new CNC machine with the largest bed size that Chapmans have ever specified. This machine will be used for fast machining of larger and deeper tooling for forged or large components, and will be supported by our sister machining Company and the AMRC research centre.
