Equipment

We have listed below some of our equipment, machinery and tooling to indicate much of our manufacturing capability. This list is not exhaustive but we have tried to show some key equipment in our machinery index. In addition, we have added links to the relevant service page to show you what each process actually is. We have included the most noteworthy machinery and processes.

Our machinery is also regularly updated and replaced to ensure that we are able to offer the best of both modern technology and old school design. This is especially relevant in our Solidworks design software. Since efficient design is very important we make full use of CAD/CAM software wherever we are able to. We also look at every project we undertake to see if we can improve efficiency, hence reduce cost, by purchasing new tooling or even machinery. Our team would be pleased to discuss  your project requirements with you, either for new or existing designs..
