The busy Formula One season draws to a close for us; we are now spending our Sundays watching all the parts we have made during this winter spinning around the circuits of the world with great pride and pleasure.
The rest of the company have been busy too, one particular project of note has been supplying a collection of large 5 axis CNC machined parts for a test rig for composite structures. These were both CNC 5- Axis Milled and CNC turned. These parts were all produced from CAD Data, at no point were designs formally drawn up, massively reducing the time spent on each project, lowering the cost and turnaround time for both us and our customers.
Some of these parts weighed more than the guys machining them, but even with this extreme weight, we were able to finish the product with a fine tolerance, quality surface finish to the same exacting standard as any other project that passes through the doors here in Portsmouth.
At the other end of the scale, manufacture of bearing blocks in high end, oil loaded plastic remains something our team keep working on. This Ertalyte – TX material is a pleasure to machine and proved to have a consistently excellent surface finish while holding tight tolerances, including threaded sections. These parts were dimensionally matched to fine tolerance Aluminium parts, often complex shaped, elements of the same system. Customer was delighted and the timescales achieved amazed us all.
We aim to keep the blog updated with all of our activities and it is a great place to find a solution to your Wire eroding, CNC turning and milling projects. Make sure you check back regularly to keep up to date with one of the South’s premier machining companies.
