FCX Orton makes investment

FCX Orton (Piacenza, Italy), part of the FCX group, plans to invest EUR 2 million to extend its premises and add additional equipment and tooling to cope with a larger product range and increased demand. The new capital will include a CNC horizontal lathe, a large CNC vertical lathe with drilling and milling facilities, new test equipment, large cryogenic test benches and an underground high pressure test bunker capable of testing valves up to 64 inches in diameter. The major work is expected to be completed by the end of the year and once complete, will allow FCX Orton to machine high-precision Metallic Seated MV Orton butterfly valves, and test them at higher pressure and under cryogenic conditions.
