Case study: Dunlop Aerospace - Flying success - Renishaw probes cut production time

Dunlop Aerospace Braking Systems, a part of Meggitt plc, is a global organisation that designs, develops and manufactures wheels and brakes for commercial and military aircraft applications. Aircraft production in the UK has experienced steady growth and to meet this demand the hub and flange cell at Dunlop Aerospace purchased 3 key CNC machines between 1998 and 2000, at that time actively specifying Renishaw probe systems. This has increased process consistency and has also had a marked effect on the manufacturing time.
