The company was formed in 1998 and continues to serve clients throughout the UK and Worldwide from its own UK workshop premises in Halifax, West Yorkshire, England. HNC engineers have a long history of experience in all aspects of Advanced Machine Tool design, build, and support. The team have a particularly high level of expertise in CNC and PLC Automation Systems.

The development of the first HNC Roll Grinder came about when the company was contacted to see whether their experience in CNC machine tool control could be applied to the production of rubber rollers. Traditionally reliant on increasingly rare operator skills, the rubber roller industry presented a huge opportunity if the technical problems could be overcome.

With an investment in Research & Development of over $1,500,000 HNC engineers set about solving the complex mathematical and engineering challenges to produce an Automatic Roll Grinder that was highly accurate and very easy to use.
