ETG’s Vulcan brand arrives
8 June 2020
The Engineering Technology Group (ETG) has now launched an entirely new brand of high-quality cost-effective machine tools. The Vulcan brand has been entirely designed and developed by ETG to target the ‘volume’ sales market whilst complementing the company’s existing high-end machine tool brands and turnkey solutions.
Already representing high-quality brands such as Chiron, Quaser, Nakamura, Hardinge and Bavius, ETG engineers have diligently worked with a trusted machine tool builder to develop a completely new range of machines with specifications, components, build-quality, performance and reliability all assured.
Commenting upon the launch of the new brand, ETG’s Group Managing Director, Mr Martin Doyle says: “We are delighted to introduce ‘Vulcan’ as our very own brand. We have worked tirelessly and diligently to create a range of machines that are designed ‘from the ground up’ by ETG. The pricing structure for such a high-quality brand of machine tools that will be supported by ETG’s service and support structure will certainly disrupt the UK’s machine tool market.”
Manufactured in Taiwan, the new brand from the Engineering Technology Group is the result of a longstanding relationship with a high-quality machine tool builder. Commenting upon this, ETG’s Mr Steve Brown says: “To enter the market segment where customers purchase machines at a particular price point, we wanted to ensure that we have the utmost in quality with a high specification machine construction that will give ETG a unique selling point. With a team of engineers permanently based in Taiwan to work in synergy with the machine tool builder, we can meet our core competence of ETG assured quality and performance at a price point that will appeal to every machine shop.”
The Vulcan brand will incorporate a series of seven precision turning centres with turning capacity for the very smallest parts to components beyond 1m diameter and 5m in length, all available with UK manufactured barfeeding solutions. The Vulcan machining centre offering is remarkably extensive with nine heavy-duty boxway VMCs that range from a table length of 800mm to 2.6m with many more models in the linear guide series for speed and precision. The Vulcan brand also incorporates double column boxway and linear machines with X-axis capacity up to 6m and beyond an impressive 10m respectively. All machines are available from ETG with a comprehensive range of options. Launched at the end of May, several machines have already been sold and are pending delivery.
