Precision Manufacturing Centre

CAPABILITIES CNC Milling Machine (2)

The Precision Manufacturing Centre have some of the most advanced precision manufacturing machines in the world managed by a team of expert engineers. We support the complete manufacturing lifecycle including digital engineering, component manufacture, high precision assembly and verification and inspection.

Our capabilities allow us to manufacture a range of challenging components in the appropriate material to micron (0.001mm) level precision. Our skilled technicians have many years' experience of taking customer drawings or sample parts and delivering completed components on time and to specification.
