CAD & CAM Software

We use several suites of the latest software to design and manage our tools, as well as integrating our CNC machines to use data directly from CAD models. 

All of our machine programming is performed offline, allowing for high levels of production efficiency and reduction in human error.

We can work from 2D and 3D CAD and have internal design capability, allowing us to assist with part design and provide proposals for increased manufacturing efficiency.

 

CNC Machining

We have a range of 3 and 5-axis CNC machines to allow for quick and accurate tool production. These are complimented with the most advanced tooling solutions available, allowing our press tool costs to remain as competitive as possible.

We also undertake production machining work of low and medium volume components from a range of standard and exotic materials for the automotive and aerospace industries, and provide machining services to other toolmakers and engineering companies throughout the UK.

We have a maximum machining size of 1700 x 800 x 500mm.
 

Wire Erosion

Our four-axis EDM (electric discharge machine) wire eroders are highly accurate machines capable of cutting hard materials. Capable of running 24 hours a day with multiple work piece holding, we have a large amount of capacity to support our build process. 

We have a maximum work piece size of 700 x 400mm, and are able to offer production batch runs of parts where required. We provide EDM services to many different industries including aerospace and motorsport, as well as providing services to other suppliers in the automotive industry.
 

CMM Services

Our CNC controlled CMM allows us to measure our parts and provide verification of part quality. 

We measure surfaces, trim and geometric features directly from CAD, and output reports for our customers. We are also able to reverse engineer and digitise using this technology. 

We have a maximum measurement size of 1000 x 650 x 650mm.
