Dugard machines are perfect for the oil and gas sector - we've been supplying them for 20 years
With over 70 years of Machine Tool experience, it stands to reason that we have learned everything we need to know about supplying machines for the oil and gas industries. We’ve been working with people from both industries for the past 20 years so now we’re really confident that if you’ve got a requirement for a large capacity machine tool then we can supply the solution you need.
Over those twenty years, as you might expect, we’ve gained some valued and extremely satisfied customers in the UK and the Middle East, UK subcontract company Main Tool Company Ltd in Glasgow are just one of those customers. In the last two years we’ve delivered 2 Samsung PL45MC CNC lathes as well as 2 Heavy Duty Dugard HD1886B VMCs and they’ve just ordered another Samsung, a PL 60 MC CNC Lathe. As subcontract precision engineers they’re at the top of their game – with the versatility to machine both small and large components for their clients (clients often in the oil & gas industries). To do this they need machine tools that can handle the challenges of today’s materials and have confidence in the backup and service from their machine tool supplier, which is exactly what they’ve got with Dugard and Samsung machines.
You Ji vertical lathes are also ideally suited to work in the oil and gas industries, which is why we do so well with them. Dugard recently installed the second You Ji VTL 2000 ATC to Welding Units (UK) Ltd (subcontractors machining components specifically for the oil and gas market). Another Dugard customer, Ayrshire Precision Engineering (subcontractors for a variety of industries including oil & gas), recently installed A You Ji VTL 250 L/R Twin Spindle Twin Turret Vertical Lathe which resulted in an immediate increase in productivity. You Ji have an enormous selection of vertical lathes – with table diameters from 200 – 8000mm and up to 64 station tool changers available, which is one of the things that makes them so appealing to the oil and gas industries. They’re also in constant production - tremendously convenient as customers never have to wait too long for delivery.
The range of suitable large capacity machine tools at Dugard is immense, with the Samsung and You Ji ranges already mentioned as well as the Tos Varnsdorf range of CNC and manual boring machines which we’ve recently had great success with in the Middle East. The Dugard range of MegaSlant and MegaTurn large capacity CNC lathes have also been hugely successful in the Middle East, with Oryx Engineering Solutions installing a number of them at their new facility in Qatar.
