CNC Milling and Turning
In addition to our EDM wire and spark erosion capabilities – we have in-house CNC Milling and Turning.
Our CNC milling machinery enables us to not only produce fixtures and electrodes but also to produce milled parts.
In 2014 we invested in a high quality turning centre with driven tooling – this has enabled us to produce both basic and complex parts that have both turning and a wire or spark erosion feature, this avoids the added complexity and risk of having to subcontract turning and keeps production quality and lead times under control. In 2018 as a result of increased customer demand we added an additional High speed Mill plus an extra Lathe from Doosan and also recruited an experienced CNC engineer who now leads this section.
All work is carried out under our AS9100 Rev D certified quality system ensuring peace of mind regarding traceability, quality and delivery.
We have found that both these capabilities of the business, compliment our specialist wire and spark erosion very well.
