Jena Tec Systematic Contract to Automotive Tier 1 Supplier

The Systematic Multi Head range now exclusively manufactured by Jena Tec provides a wide range of engineered solutions for High Productivity Machining. Our experienced engineers can design or retro-fit our multi head components into your machining centre to maximise the productivity demands of today's environment, offering you time and cost savings in the manufacturing process.

In June 2010 Jena Tec is pleased to announce a significant value contract win to a leading UK tier 1 supplier to an automotive OEM for diesel engine components. The Jena Tec remit was to re-design a range of multi head systems and replace an aging Marwin 3 machine transfer line of rotary transfer systems with new slideways and multi head drilling systems to enable a new diesel engine variant component to be produced using an existing line. As space was at a premium, investment in additional machine tools to satisfy production and also the high capital cost meant that Jena Tec's Systematic upgrade option was the preferred option in terms of timing, cost and floorspace to allow the customer to meet rising demand for production of new engine types.

The scope of supply includes the design, manufacture and retrofit of a complete series of CNC machine tool systems with more modern technology and machine tool components allowing faster productivity and throughput. The complete project will be designed, installed and commissioned by January 2011. Jena Tec's investment in the brand name of Systematic, a well known respected name in the automotive industry has secured their position in the niche engineering sector and takes advantage of a shrinking skill set for this type of work available in the UK. Export potential of this high precision sector of the machine tool industry is showing positive indications as Jena Tec capitalise on their global distribution network and group companies particularly in mainland Europe, USA and Asia.
