Purchasing our first sliding head automatic lathe in 2009 as a result of a customer enquiry, SRD are extremely competitive on high volume sliding head machining / turning batch work. In 2018, we added to our capacity three additional machines which represent the very latest in technological advances.

Up to Ø32mm our sliding head machines are capable of intricate mill-turn applications reducing cycle times due to the complex but extremely effective layout and tooling options. Also producing the simplest of machined parts by the thousand, these machines are extremely versatile.

“The machines we use can change our quotes from pounds to pence” – Mark B – Director
