Heavy Investment

Part of the company’s increasing investment has been in extremely accurate jigs and fixtures and new machining centres, which put JCB in direct control of component quality. These new machining centres are able to self-position and ‘find’ components to maximise machining precision, ensuring consistent quality to fabrications.

Manchester Metrology

In order to ensure quality, JCB awarded the responsibility for their jig and fixture calibration procedures to Manchester Metrology.
