Group Processes

We have over 40 years of precision machining expertise and as part of our drive to remain at the forefront of manufacturing technology, our motivated, skilled team operates the very latest equipment. We can offer production engineering, utilising offline two and three dimensional and five axis programming and verification software, with the capability to programme machining and inspection directly from the customer’s CAD model. This includes:

Delcam Powermill
World leading two, three and five axis CAM software.

Delcam Feature Turn
Feature-based technology for fast, automated programming of turned parts.

NCG CAM
HSM milling software for three plus two axis.

Alphacam
Two and two and a half dimensional turning and milling software.

We also have the capability to produce three dimensional models of components and assemblies using:

Delcam PowerShape
For integrated surface, solid and triangle modelling of complex shapes.

Solidworks
Three dimensional design solution for rapid creation of parts, assemblies and two dimensional drawings.

Catia
The world’s leading solution for product design and innovation. As a result, we can receive files in a number of different formats including IGES, STP, Parasolid, Catia and Solidworks. Once the CNC part programmes have been created, they can be fully verified before reaching a machine tool using VERICUT software to detect errors, potential collisions or areas of inefficiency – eliminating costly manual prove-outs.

Express Engineering

CNC Turning

From small compact-sized, high-speed technology, to multi-task machines with milling and drilling capability (that finishes all machining stages with fewer set-ups) to large turning capacity – 1.3m diameter x 6m long-bed.

Express Engineering

CNC Vertical Boring

Capacity for pieces up to 2m in diameter and again high precision milling and drilling to ensure fewer set-ups.

Express Engineering

CNC Horizontal Milling/Boring

Extensive machining centres including compact high-speed, multi-pallet and large capacity (up to 2m).

Express Engineering

CNC Vertical Milling

From small compact-size high-speed, to large capacity (up to 1m x 3m).

Express Engineering

CNC 5-Axis Milling

The ultimate solution for machining accurate and robust complex components.

Express Engineering

Electric discharge machining (EDM)

EDM, also known as spark erosion and wire erosion, can easily machine complex parts and precision components from hard conductive materials.

Welding

Our weld cladding and pup butt welding technology has achieved ISO 3834 accreditation for precision-machined, pressure-tested components and assemblies. A hot wire GTAW cladding and welding cell holds a library of fully qualified and witnessed weld procedures for all the common alloys used in the oil and gas industry.

Our WPS/PQR approved procedures include:
· 625 Cladding
· AISI 4130
· AISI 8630
· AISI 4140
· F22
· F65
· X52
· F6NM
· 410
· Duplex S.S

Inspection, NDE and hardness testing

We boast an extensive range of CMM inspection machines to measure small to large complex parts. In addition, we provide NDT services (ASNT and PCN qualified), positive metal identification (PMI) and hardness checks against the material specification requirements.

Assembly and testing

This function enables us to be a strategic partner with customers, supplying highly complex products, fully assembled and tested, directly to their location.
