In response to demands from F1 customers for more capacity the company has ordered its fourth 5 axis CNC machine, a Mazak Variaxis J600 5X.

Scheduled for July 2014 installation this will be the company’s third Mazak Variaxis, and will increase the total number of CNC machines to eight.

R-TEK LTD required a UK gauge maker to manufacture and repair gauges for checking automotive interior trim parts. Central Patternmaking have now been delivering gauges to R-TEK LTD since 2009.

Communication is good during the design and manufacturing stages. The gauges are manufactured to our specification and to a very good standard of workmanship. Central will suggest better ways to do things. Most importantly, when the gauge is delivered there has been no remedial work or corrections required. I would recommend Central Patternmaking to another company.
