The plant at RIVAL is busy, and the company has just invested in a new DMC 80 FD duoBLOCK® CNC machine for the advanced production of among other things, components for the defence industry.
The hole for the foundation has been dug, and the machine is on its way from Germany. DMC 80 FD is a 5-axle multi-machine, which can work on components up to Ø 1000 mm.
“At RIVAL, we are underway with something special. In the last few years, we’ve built up a machine plant which can do exceptional things,” says CEO Carsten Tønnes. “Therefore, we are now investing in this advanced CNC machine, which is only found in a few countries, and at the same time, we’re also looking for an extra set of skilled hands.”
Looking for an extra set of skilled hands
Customers often come to RIVAL when they have components that are not easy to manufacture. RIVAL has demonstrated over many years that it has the employees and machinery that can deal with the task, regardless of whether it is components for the defence, oil, gas, or wind power industry.
RIVAL is thus looking for another employee with “skilled hands”, who has experience with 5-axle milling, multi-machine operation, the Siemens control system and the machining of large, complex components. “We’re very interested in hearing from experienced machine operators, who want to join our company,” says Carsten Tønnes. “We have many exciting jobs in the order book and a strong social circle, which I’m sure, will attract many experienced machine operators.”
