At our Compressor Design Centre and Ultra-precision Factory in Edinburgh, we develop, test and manufacture compressors that produce 200% higher pressure in a single stage than what people though was possible.
The key to this success is ultra-precision manufacturing at geometrical tolerances of up to +/-5 microns. This is achieved with 5-axis CNC milling machines with linear drives and thermal compensation, and high-end CAM software. But the true secret is the expertise of our team.
Vert has a temperature controlled metrology laboratory. We use a Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) Aberlink Axiom Too, with Renishaw probe head.
CMM measurements show highest accuracy down to a few microns achieved even with complex helical profiles, such as Inner screws (click to see example reports).
Vert operate two 5-axis CNC mills. The DMG-Mori HSC-20 mill with linear drives, themral compensation and high-speed spindle at 40,000 rpm is used for ultra-precision operations down to +/-5 microns. The Hurco VMX30 mill in 5-axis configuration is used for housing parts.
The DMG-Mori CLX-350 turning centre helps us maintain the highest standard of CNC machining of complex parts, thanks to sub spindle and Y-axis.
