Supplementary machine – not used in production

As precision engineers striving for perfection, we believe that heritage is important, and that to understand how we got to where we are today, we have to understand where we came from. That’s why, here at Norjon, we keep some machines that never get used in production.

One of these machines, based at our Hampshire precision engineering workshop, is the Colchester Triumph 2000 lathe.

Originally built in 1968, the Triumph 2000 was a leap forwards in both specification and styling, featuring a new ‘square’ look-and-feel, ergonomically-designed controls and bright colours. Alongside the fashionable face-lift, these lathes were also renown for reliability, durability, and the capacity to turn out parts easily and at speed.

It also opened up machining to the masses, due to its lower price point and flexibility. It became so popular, in fact, that demand regularly outstripped supply of this popular lathe.

Today, our Gosport workshop features cutting-edge turning machines that have come a long way from the Triumph 2000 and we’re always keeping an eye on the future of precision engineering so that we can produce the very highest quality components.
