Stainless Steel vs Mild Steel

Published: 15/01/2019

When making large batches of components it would be hard to argue that making the part out of steel with zinc plating wouldn’t be cheaper than making it out of stainless steel.

Permitting Centres

Published: 27/02/2017

When trying to obtain competitively priced components, a factor to be considered when designing long slender components is whether a centre is acceptable on the finished component.

Drawing Formats

Published: 09/01/2017

Drawings are quite often sent to us in the PDF format. This normally results in clear, easy to read drawings that we can print out for use in the workshop. This is a very effective means of sending drawings.

Broaching for Allen/hex keys, Torx etc.

Published: 30/11/2016

We are now able to offer you the facility to produce internal hexagons to suit your requirements, with the recent addition of a new broaching tool. Internal hexagonal forms can be produced in house, commonly to suit Allen or hex keys, but other forms are available on request e.g. Torx, spline or square forms etc.

Cutting Corners

Published: 28/10/2016

When machining an internal corner radius on a CNC milling machine it is normally an advantage to use as large a cutter as possible. Therefore, if a component has an internal radius of 6mm the ideal cutter to use would be 12mm diameter (6mm radius). Unfortunately, when a cutter and internal radius are the same size chatter can occur due to the fact that for the brief moment the cutter is in the corner it has a lot of surface contact. This may mean that a 10mm cutter is chosen as a compromise.

Our Lead Times

Published: 12/10/2016

We are often asked about our lead times. As a standard we try to offer 4 weeks. We will accommodate shorter lead times whenever possible if it is required and we can achieve the date requested without impacting on our existing commitments. Please ask if you require a quick turnaround.
