The Engineering and Equipment Centre recently carried out a series of TNC/CNC/DRO repairs in Southampton, for a MOD contracted machining company. We cannot show photos of the repair job due the sensitive nature of the work, but have shown photos from a very similar installation carried out recently at a similar – less sensitive facility.
