News: Dormer open doors of Rotherham facility


Dormer Tools are hosting an open house event at their state-of-the-art facility in Rotherham.

The firm is part of Sweden's Sandvik Group and has developed from a traditional cutting tool manufacturer to one of the world's largest producers of solid carbide and high speed steel cutting tools. Their tools are used in cutting edge industries including the tooling designed specifically for cutting composite material in the aerospace sector.

The purpose-built facility on the Advanced Manufacturing Park incorporates a state-of-the-art training suite and a major research and development facility - one of only four such facilities worldwide. Both areas have played a significant role in providing customers across the UK with the right cutting tools for their applications.

The open house event on July 5 & 6, will cover CAD/CAM Solutions, Tooling, Work Holding Automation, Machining, Measuring and Inspection.

The research and development centre of excellence is tasked with identifying, devising and delivering new products and machining solutions. Products are only created if there is a market need.

The centre uses the latest machinery and a recent addition is the Heller FT 4000 five-axis machining centre, one of the most powerful machines of its type. Dormer experts will showcase their latest milling technology by performing product demonstrations at the event.

John O'Donoghue, general manager at Dormer Tools, said: "The two open days will provide a perfect opportunity for people from across the country to view our new-look productivity centre.

"Visitors will be able to witness the capabilities of our latest cuttings tools, as well as the performance of some of the world's best machines – a partnership which we feel will offer significant benefits to a host of sectors."

Dormer believes its decision to place greater emphasis on training staff and customers on their products is leading to an upturn in the amount of tools being sold to blue chip organisations as well as small and medium sized enterprises.

Following the move to the AMP in Rotherham, the firm saw a significant increase in sales of more than 20 per cent for 2010, reaching the pre-recession levels of two years ago.
