5 Axis Automated Milling

In order to meet the high quality and turnaround demands of the sectors that we serve, we are continually investing heavily in our tooling and machinery. Our state-of-the-art tool holding and work holding allows us to prove out and get jobs up and running quickly and efficiently, and then offer a 24/7 manufacturing service.

We currently have seventeen 5 Axis CNC Milling machines, most of which are automated with multi-pallet robots (100 pallet automation systems), giving us the capability to move from one-off prototyping work to medium / high volume production, all within the same cycle. This also enables us to minimise waste, reduce cycle times and improve accuracy.

Our advanced CAD /CAM system, combined with the expertise of our technicians, allows us to reliably simulate jobs prior to manufacturing, resulting in quicker set-up times. Thereafter, we always aim for one-hit machining. Our work-holding allows us to go straight from the saw to the machine, avoiding wasteful pre-machining operations.

What our clients say:

  • We have taken delivery of the first parts and would like to say that they are the best ones we have ever had manufactured. The service and turnaround has been exceptional.

    Oil and Gas sector company
    Senior Buyer

  • Everything has been perfect - 10 things all needed to key together perfectly and to our surprise it all just went together. The actuator bore/piston was hands down one of the best fitting ones we have ever assembled, and we've built thousands over the years here.

  • The part really looks fantastic and all our mechanical designers are extremely excited and have been staring at it for the last hour. Thanks for the great work.

  • These are probably the nicest finish I have ever seen in titanium and something about their curvature specifically just really made them look incredible. They've gotten a number of looks from all of our engineers who keep constantly asking who made those parts.

  • All we can really say is WOW - astounding facility and what a focused and cohesive team. Having been in engineering all my career (35 years), I have had few companies impress me that much

  • The parts are perfect. Frankly I'm astonished at the speed that you've turned these parts around, and the exceptionally high standard of the whole experience I've had working with you.

    Surgical Instruments Manufacturer
    Managing Director

  • Thanks for the delivery - on time again! You're making the rest of us look bad! I've seen the parts this morning, and they are once again spot on. Thanks again for helping us out on this one.

    Surgical Instruments Manufacturer
    Managing Director

  • I was approached by one of our inspectors today and asked to pass on my compliments regarding the standard of work he found when he inspected the parts. This is a complex part, and he was impressed with the component you provided, particularly given the additional pressure at this time with the volume of parts being processed and the tight deadlines we require you to work to. Thank you very much for your efforts.

  • As one of our key Suppliers, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your efforts and commitment over the Winter. The whole team, of which you are a significant part, has responded magnificently to this challenge and the level of teamwork, dedication and professionalism has increased to another level of performance.
