This is a Trumpf TR180 CNC sheet metal punching machine. This was my work station from 1988 to 1995. The machine basically punches holes and contours in sheet metal up to 6mm thick. This is at the manufactured components division at the Marconi site in Waterhouse Lane Chelmsford.
This site opened in 1964 and closed in 1999. I was here from 1984 through to the end in 1999. It’s now occupied by a Homebase DIY store and some small industrial units.
Once a centre of engineering exellence you can now buy pot plants in the same place.
