Machining

We understand that you don't want unfinished castings or forgings but finished components. That is why we source the post-production process for you, including machining castings (milling, boring, turning, threading, etc.), fabricating pressings, fitting inserts and seals, and many more.

Improving Your Cost Benefit

Actually most of the cost benefit in sourcing from low cost economies is found in labour intensive post production operations. The more added value you can put into a component before you deliver it to the UK, the more you can save!

Whether you need secondary operations on castings or parts just machined from solid, we have access to some of the best CNC vertical machining centre (VMC) capacity in China. In conjunction with our process planning expertise we can make sure optimized robust processes are in place, thereby eliminating operation variations on critical dimensions.

Quality and inspection of machined parts

All of our suppliers are ISO 9000 accredited and many are TS 16949 for western automotive customers.

Prior to production supply all new parts are initially supplied as PPAP (Production Part Approval Process) samples along with necessary ISIR (Initial Sample Inspection Reports) material certificates for customer approval. Inspection facilities are modern and would typically include facilities such as CMM, roundness testing, contour and surface finish testing, hardness testing, along with variable and hard gauging.

Ongoing production will be controlled with appropriate process documentation, control plans, gauging instructions and regular quality sampling via the inspection laboratories. Where necessary, SPC (Statistical Process Control) can be applied to critical features.
