Managing Director, Peter McCool, said “Our experienced team of programmers have adapted quickly and incorporated the running of Vericut into our standard operating procedures.As a business we continue to grow strongly. Each time we grow we need to change, adapt and relentlessly improve. Introducing Vericut is part of our push to constantly improve.”

NC programmes are now written and verified before jobs to be loaded on to each machine. This gives Shape the ability to extend significantly the available machining hours in a day and makes possible the planned introduction of a late and a night shift.
