Customers often ask us what batch sizes and material types that we can handle? The answer is pretty much any size or type that the customer requires. We Typically see batches of anything between 1 and 1000 off and can handle materials in all shapes and sizes.

Components lead-times are often an important factor to customers, particularly when delivery schedules and penalty clauses are applied. Our production control systems allow us to to accurately monitor and manage progress throughout the manufacturing process. A typical lead-time of 4-6 working weeks should be expected from receipt of order, depending upon the exact specification of the component and thus the manufacturing processes required.

We are frequently asked if we can manufacture ‘1 off’ or ‘bespoke’ items in cases such as machine or plant breakdowns. The Answer to this question is that in most cases, ‘yes’ we can help. From experience we also realise that these type of items are often required quickly to minimise downtime and loss of production. As such will do our best to have such items manufactured as quickly and efficiently as possible to get you up and running again.

To help us minimise the lead time required to produce ‘first-offs’ on batches of new components and to optimize cycle times on repeat batch work, we have recently invested in Edgecam 2010 cad/cam software.

This software provides us the ability to program components offline from solid models, either supplied by customers or draughted by ourselves. Compatable model formats include Solidworks, Solidedge, Parasolid, Step and Unigraphics NX amongst others.
