Advanced Manufacturing Centre
We have invested in specialist teams and state-of-facilities and technology to deliver our market-leading capability.
We are qualified to CE Mark and ASME U stamp equipment. Our integrated facility includes heavy lift capability; high capacity and high precision machining and high performance CNC milling and drilling.
The centre also houses one of the UK’s largest co-ordinate measuring tables (CMM). The Hexagon CMM handles high precision work with built-in quality assurance on large parts for aerospace, defence, and industrial applications. It has multi-sensor technology, advanced accuracy and repeatability and is temperature controlled with built-in compensation.
High Integrity Fabrication
We operate an integrated, efficient and high capacity metal fabrication centre with 7 overhead cranes up to 30-tonnes with a 15m span. This centre has a capability to take items up to 6m diameter or 26m long – and up to a weight of 120-tonnes
The facility has manual and automated advanced welding stations, sophisticated handling equipment, in-house machining facilities, and plasma cutting systems – linked to an on-site design office for thermal and mechanical design calculations using advanced software tools.
One of our main capabilities is atmosphere control – providing a controlled environment for electrical assembly. We have our own ISO Class 8 clean room onsite which reduces the sub-micron particles and modifies inadequate environmental conditions. By ensuring that there is always a steady flow of air blown through, high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters to maintain a dust free environment at all times.
Our in-house X-ray facilities (RT), with the provision for PT, VT, UT and MPI to name but a few, provides the complete assurance and documentation needed for your industry.
