Sub Contract Machining

 

CNC Machining

There are 11 CNC machines each running 24hrs a day 5 days a week. Predominantly programmed offline using Delcam’s PowerMill software, the machines are capable of machining components up to 5m in length. The larger machines are fitted with multi-axis heads to enable efficient 3+2 CNC machining for complex angles on components.

Typically machining components in cast iron or steel, the machines also regularly machine in a range of model boards, aluminium or aerospace grade steels. Maximum load weight on to the machines is 35T supported by the overhead crane capacity.
