EGT Tries to Bridge the Gap Between High and Low Specifications

The Engineering Tchnology Group (EGT) is going to offer Taiwan Feeler brand machine tool, attempting to bridge the gap between high specification Chiron and Handtmann machine tools and low specification, low duty budget machines.

The range of the Feeler, produced by the Fair Friend Group, includes light, medium and heavy-duty vertical machining centres, drill-tap centres, long bed milling machines , 5 axis vertical machining centres and horizontal machining centres.

The Taiwan-based Group is now the largest machine tool producer in Greater China. They manufacture about 8,000 machines yearly out of which 5,000 remain vertical machining centres, which makes it the second biggest VMC producer in the world. Moreover, having 2,000 graduates who constitute 30% of its workforce, the company is likely to become the world's biggest tool producer within the next decade. It can already boast having such blue-chip customers as NASA, Boeing, Airbus, Siemens, BMW, Caterpillar, Toyota, VW, Ferrari and GM among others.

EGT chairman, Paul Rhodes is pleased to announce that Feeler machines are sure to appeal to customers, from small subcontract engineering companies to Tier One automotive and aerospace suppliers. „With Feeler, we can offer the market a full range from an entry-level machine all the way up to twin-pallet vertical machines, twin pallet horizontal machines and 5-axis machines for billet work”, Rhodes concludes.
