Mechanical/Production Engineering

I offer a complete service to anyone needing to engineer a precision engineering component either as a one off or on a production basis. I have experience of manufacture both on conventional machines and CNC machinery and have been involved in CNC manufacture since 1979. I have extensive experience in the aircraft, automotive, MOD and precision engineering industries including programming machining centers (3 to 5 axis), turning centers (2 to 4 axis), borers, punch presses and laser/plasma cutters. I am also experienced in press tools, assembly fixtures, Jig and tool design, small machinery design and component design. My services include all technical disciplines as follows.
