Technological Updates at RP


The Importance of Keeping Technology Up to Date

Technology is inescapable. It influences every area of our life. From how we work, play and live day-to-day. Technology is a revolution that will grow for as long as humans continue to advance in their capabilities.

As the months and years go by, technology just gets better and better. What was yesterdays ‘next big thing’, is old hat today. The bottom line is, technology doesn’t wait for you and if your organisation isn’t keeping up with it, you will surely be left behind by your competitors

Here at RP Technologies we embrace technology and pride ourselves in keeping it up to date. All of our Hurco CNC machines are different ages but they are all running the latest update of software, but why bother?

The first Apple iPhone was released in 2007 and it’s plain to see how much that technology has moved forward since then. The years of constant development mean we can now use our smartphones to do almost anything. So why do many people think that when we buy a machine the investment is complete when the machine is paid for?

Our new Hurco machines have a cycle time 30% faster than older versions as well as improved surface finish. We recently upgraded all of our machines so they now benefit from the same hardware and software with the associated advantages. This improves our tooling throughout the manufacturing process and also reduces wear and tear on the machines, giving the added benefit of reduced servicing.

Keeping up to date with technology isn’t all about having the latest gadgets, for RP it’s about utilising the latest technology updates to improve our processes so that we offer the best possible service to our customers. Having latest technology enables us to retain our ‘without limits’ philosophy and offer a unique service to our customers.
