Case Study: Defence Industry

A machine shop to source large aluminium castings and machine to close tolerances and finish paint structural elements of Naval Guns.  

The requirement also called for the refurbishment of existing castings for the same equipment.

Computerised measuring machine to accept 2m x 2m x 2m components also required.

Full QA documentation also being required to meet UK/MOD needs and a high level of Project Management expertise to maintain control of contract programme.

We manufacture over 270 materials for casting and special products according to customer specifications, including products that meet the highest corrosion and wear requirements! Our partners are experienced in all different kinds of coatings, so we can supply ready coated components that are compatibly finished to the narrowest of tolerances.

For pump construction we supply shaft end sleeves, casings, split rings and seat rings in highly wear-resistant and corrosion-resistant materials. Depending on customer requirements, we can either pre-machine these or finish them ready to be fitted. Our ready finished components keep your downtime to a minimum.

Our Products are used in a multitude of highly critical sectors e.g in power stations and equipment for the chemical industry, where the failure of a component would have catastrophic consequences. Perfect quality is therefore our overriding objective. Internal and external inspections and audits are routinely conducted at our company.
