Goodbye Donau, Hello Haas VF-8 CNC Machine!

This week, MHP Industries Ltd. have continued to expand their machining capabilities, with the purchase of a Haas VF-8 CNC Machine and sale of a 20 year old Donau Danusys, this follows the replacement of the vacuum forming machine back in January.

The Donau machine, which was originally purchased by MHP in 2001, was expertly removed on Monday by Craig and his team at Apps Machinery Transport and transported to their yard where it was stored over night before being loaded onto a flatbed vehicle that would take it to its new home in Germany.

KG Logistics Ltd. Transported the machine through the UK to Germany smoothly and efficiently, despite some challenges with German Customs, leaving us here at MHP to get on with bringing the new machine in.

Hello Haas VF-8 CNC Machine.

The Haas VF-8 will expand our capacity for machining aluminium mould tools faster and more accuratley than possible with the old Donau machine.
