The future is here

Tranquil PC, Manchester, 5th September 2011

Today saw the beginning of a very exciting future for Tranquil PC, as our new high speed CNC machine was installed.

The 3 tonne machine, unloaded and positioned by a small crane will facilitate the ‘in house’ creation of amazing unibody systems.  The first products to be created later this month will be high performance, ultra thin, rugged devices for the high reliability markets.

The machine arrives, all shrunk wrap – and parked up outside of Tranquil PCs offices and factory in Trafford Park, Manchester.  XYZ the supplier, also a UK company say that they are very proud to supply this machine to an enterprising company with it’s eyes firmly set on investing in UK design, manufacture and supply.


The machine is hoisted off the lorry – the driver said he rarely gets to position a machine so easily – his lorry was secured, before the machine was quickly lifted and positioned (having such a large door, and 7.5M eaves certainly helped today)



Phillip, one of Tranquil PC’s Directors, checks to ensure the machine is carefully positioned into place. He’ll need to ensure it runs like clock work to achieve the output expectations.



The machine will be used to create bespoke IT products and system components.  In the picture below, you can see the transition from a raw aluminium billet – held by our Managing Director to a milled and finished IT system – held here proudly by James Thompson.



Over the coming weeks, we’ll share more cases studies and success stories.


It’s a proud moment to see manufacturing of this type returning to Trafford Park, Manchester – a proud day indeed for British industry!

Share this great news!
