SFTD recently invested in a 5 axis precision cylindrical grinding machine with integrated 3 axis robot loader, this machine is ideal for grinding core pins allowing for a diameter range of 0.025 – 25mm.

The Rollomatic NP50’s unique grinding system means it is possible for us to achieve a run out of 0.001mm on our products. Multiple functions can be carried out in one chucking set-up, we also have the ability to grind both threads and flats.

Precision and repeatability are monitored throughout production with a built in automated measuring system. The machine allows for automation of production, which drives efficiencies, delivering quicker turn around times for clients. The Rollomatic NP50 machine uses CBN grinding wheels which we dress on site with our Farman FC250 wheel dressing machine.


With recent investment we have upgraded our workshop to include some of the best machining centres available, this puts us in an industry leading position to meet customer requirements now and into the future. To keep up with the evolving needs of our customers and the industry we will continue to invest in the latest machines and technology to maintain our position as leader in the precision engineering sector.
