With a fully equipped machine shop with CNC and conventional turning and milling, including 4th axis, we can take your drawings through to finished components with the aid of our in house full 3D CAD modelling and machining system.

We also have the ability to import your CAD files in any format e.g. step, igs, parasolid, dxf etc. into our system. We can then create machining programmes for manufacture on our CNC machines by our team of skilled engineers to your specific requirements. Due to our main years of experience in many fields, we can help with development of prototypes, cost saving and advice. We are experience in all types of engineering materials e.g. steel, stainless steel, aluminium, brass, bronze, titanium, plastics etc. and are happy to work on one-offs, through to batch quantities.
