Our engineers can produce high quality turned parts as one offs or in large batches for a wide variety of industries using high-precision CNC turning machines, including a four-axis lathe. We can turn shafts of varying widths and lengths.
CNC machining is highly automated, so consistent production is possible during and outside work hours. This flexibility benefits our customers by shortening production lead times and ultimately saving on costs.
We operate four CNC lathes. Two of them are are 4 axis CAD/CAM capable turning centres with live tooling, Y axis and bar feeds. Our 2-axis turning centre is devoted to a variety of lower volume and one off complex components. The larger flat bed lathe can cope with shafts up to 1.8 metres long by 350mm diameter.
Besides our CNC centres, we also have several manual lathes in our workshop, such as that pictured below, which is replicating a shaft. Reverse engineering of components is one of our specialities.
We regularly work with a variety of materials to produce complex parts for customers. Our engineers are experienced also in machining exotic alloys that include:
To request a quotation for CNC machining, please upload your files with drawings, 3D-models or sketches in any popular format. We will then be in touch to discuss the job. We are always happy to discuss your machining needs or to examine samples. You can be assured of first class work and service to match.

On the right is a sample from a batch of 25 LED housings and bezels made for a national lighting manufacturer from aluminium, which will be anodised.
The picture, far right, shows the amount of live tooling required to manufacture these products without the need for a milling machine. The advantage to the customer of this method lies in the improved turnaround time.
The housings and bezels were made on one of our live tooling lathes and completed in two operations as opposed to four: two on a lathe and two on a milling machine.
