About Winbro

Winbro Group Technologies (WGT) is a world leader in the design and manufacture of advanced machines and technologies based on non-conventional processes. Winbro high-technology machine systems produce holes and forms in components used in the most demanding parts of aero and industrial gas turbines, as well as in high-precision applications in the semiconductor, fuel cell and medical industries.

We are based in Coalville, UK, and also have a manufacturing centre in Rock Hill, SC, USA. In October 2019, following seven years of close collaboration, WGT became part of Quaser Machine Tools (QMT) [https://www.quaser.com] providing a third manufactuing base in Taiwan and allowing us to offer a unique range of technologies to a global customer base.

We pride ourselves in always being at the forefront of machine and process development, offering a comprehensive range of systems and technologies which deliver the performance and precision demanded by industry.

Winbro's non-conventional machining processes include High Speed EDM Drilling, Laser drilling, cutting, ablation and welding, Creep-Feed Grinding and ECM (Electro-Chemical Machining). Our machine systems can be configured either as single process or dual complimentary process machines, providing a no-compromise solution to industry machining requirements.

The combination of our intimate knowledge of turbine components and expertise in turnkey machining systems is reflected in the creation of WAM (Winbro Advanced Machining). WAM provides our customers with a range of machining facilities which can be used to manufacture production components, either ahead of delivery of a new machine, or as an ongoing secondary source of component production. WAM certifications include ISO9001 2008, AS9100 Rev C, Accreditation with NADCAP for non-conventional processes plus independent accreditation with many of the industry’s blue chip OEMs.

Winbro Group Technologies has been dedicated to serving the aero and industrial gas turbine markets for over 30 years, and find our expertise is highly transferrable to other sectors. Embedded in our philosophy is that because we offer a wide range of technologies, we are able to be truly 'technology agnostic', and offer only the optimum solution to our customers' applications. We then aim to deliver that solution in a friendly yet no-nonsense manner. Our success can be measured by the fact that we enjoy long-term relationships with many of the leading aero and industrial gas turbine manufacturers across the world.
