As well as general machining of production parts we produce one offs, prototypes and repairs to damaged/worn parts from wide a range of sectors, plant types and materials.
We also offer a spark eroding service for tap/broken tool removal and Mag drilling.
These services can be carried out in-house or on site.
We have a range of surplus tooling available including non-standard taps and large drills/reamers.
Also a large surplus of Capstan tooling, Coventry die boxes and chasers.

DESIGN & CONSULTANCY
Design for manufacture (DFM)
From contributing to small DFM ideas to a complete design to end product package from customer brief.
We specialise in one-offs and research & development work.
Evaluation of drawings, creation and assessment of 2D/3D models against client specification and requirements.
Design and manufacture solutions for Jigs & Fixtures, Tooling and Plant improvements.
Recommendations and improvements for cost reductions and increased production in manufacturing environments.
Specification and development of a prototype for approval, using computer modelling to program CAM.
From one offs as above to batch work for process proving and Statiscal Process Control (SPC).
