Leading RP Bureau Doubles Its CNC Capacity

HAAS Investment and Recruitment Drive Supports Engineering Growth

Leading rapid prototyping bureau, Paragon Rapid Technologies has expanded its dedicated CNC facility with the addition of 2 new machining centres. A 5-Axis HAAS UMC-750 and a 3-Axis HAAS SUPER MINIMILL 2 will complement its existing capabilities and double capacity for the production of machined components.

Its range of 3- and 5-Axis CNC mills allow the efficient machining of parts with multiple features in a reduced number of steps, saving both manufacturing time and part cost. Paragon uses CNC machined metal and plastic parts for prototype production, as well as for low volume batch manufacture for end use applications.

Paragon Commercial Director, Ian Jobling, commented, “The addition of the new machines will support the growth of our Engineering facility, including the manufacture of our own range of Jigs and Fixtures. It’s an exciting time for Paragon, as we look to develop into new markets and discover new applications for our well established and successful production technologies.”

The investment has also driven another round of recruitment for County Durham-based Paragon, with experienced CNC Programmer, Alan Mason recently joining the team.
