Engineering Services - CNC Machining

A selection of machining work produced in our own workshops. Where possible we avoid castings, machining fully from solid material, as it is quicker and easier to set up for accurate results, and thus a less costly way of producing quality repeatable parts.

Our in-house facilities include CNC milling with full 3D contouring on a vertical machining centre, as well as turning on 3 CNC lathes of varying capacities, including powered tooling capability.
