Our core business is machining precision components. We have 13 CNC machines providing us with unique manufacturing capabilities, enabling us to machine a huge variety of components.
Each machine is equipped with a Renishaw touch probe system allowing for fast and accurate tool and part set-up, with the added benefits of in-cycle gauging. Through close relationships with our suppliers we are able to maintain a comprehensive range of tooling that is at the fore front of technology and material removal methods.
We have manufacturing experience with a range of materials, including brass, aluminium, steel, plastic and alloys, as well as exotics like Inconel, titanium and super-duplex stainless steels. Through discussions with our customers we source the most appropriate material for your application, based on metallurgical values, tolerances and load ratings, providing accurate and cost effective finished products.
With all our machines being CNC, our finished products are always as per the design, within tolerance and of the highest quality. We achieve quick turnaround times due to the sheer number of machines on the factory floor and have the ability to manage production schedules to ensure that even strict deadlines are met.
Our milling section currently comprises six (6) unique machines, including vertical and horizontal machines, 4-Axis and 5-Axis machines, multi-pallet, and large capacity CNC machining centres. These state-of-the-art machines allow us to greatly improve productivity and perform complex milling.
Our turning section currently comprises five (5) machines including Y-Axis and C-Axis capabilities, coupled with multi-spindles that utilise live tooling and bar feeders to maximise efficiencies and output.
The most recent addition to our CNC capabilities is an Okuma U4000 multi-tasking machine spec’d with twin turning spindles, H1 milling spindle, B-axis, Y-axis, and C-axis allowing for jobs to be machined using a single set-up approach.
EDM Wire Cutting
EDM Wire Cutting, or wire electrical discharge machining, allows for the rapid creation of prototypes or short run manufactured products. This process provides us with the capacity to cut intricate, complex, tapered and transitioning shapes, which would otherwise be difficult to produce with conventional methods and cutting tools, coupled with the ability to achieve very fine tolerances and smooth surface finishes. We specialise in large capacity and complex wire cutting jobs.
Computer-aided Manufacture (CAM)
Mastercam® is used for all complex tool path generation, and we maintain current licencing and up-to-date release versions to ensure we are utilising state of the art tool path algorithms to maximise machining efficiency.
Matrix Tool Management System
Investment in a matrix tool management system, or tool vending machine, safeguards production against tool shortages or stock out interruptions, ensuring the manufacture of your project stays on track.
As part of our value-adding service we have developed relationships with like-minded sub-contract suppliers enabling us to manage your project from start to finish. These services include (but are not limited to):
– fabrication: laser cutting, water jet cutting, CNC folding & tube bending, welding (MIG & TIG)
– surface treatment: anodising, electroplating, Electroless nickel plating, black oxide, shot-peening
– heat treatment: case-hardening, through hardening, nitriding
