THE FIRST DIXI 75 four-axis jig borer to be equipped with the Vidimatic numerical control system that incorporates television camera tubes is being installed in the Willow-lane, Mitcham, works of Morfax Ltd, to increase facilities for precision machining of complex workpieces. This is the first installation of its kind in the world.
Work at Morfax ranges from new stabilisers for the QE2 liner made from 1-inch thick stainless steel plate, structures for the Skynet 2 communications satellite and the UK5 experimental space satellite which are being assembled in a specially constructed clean room.
Among either works are artificial feel chassis for control of the Concorde and compressor casings for the Rolls-Royce RB211 engines.
