Our suppliers can make your components out of almost any material!


Grade 1050 is the most common grade of aluminium sheet available in the UK, whilst grade 5251 is probably the second most popular grade of aluminium sheet used in the UK today. Our suppliers offer a wide range of services that cover all types of grades including 1000 series, 2000 series, 5000 series, 6000 series and 7000 series.

Mild Steel

Mild steel is a ferrous metal made from iron and carbon. It is a low-priced material with properties that are suitable for most general engineering applications. Our suppliers can machine all types of mild steel including EN24T, EN8, S275JR, EN3B, rebar 500B, EN1A, A142, A193, A252 & more.

Stainless Steel

We can put you in touch with suppliers who specialise in machining stainless steel components. Two of the most commonly-used stainless steels are grade 304 and grade 316, but our suppliers can also manufacture items out of grade 303, grade 306, grade 309, Duplex 2205 & more.


Not all plastics are suitable for machining, but our suppliers have the capabilities to machine components from ABS, acetal, acrylic, nylon, foam, FEP, ETFE, polyethylene, polypropylene & PTFE.

Other Materials

Whilst the aforementioned materials are the most commonly-used when it comes to producing CNC machined components, we also have some suppliers who are capable of machining alloy steel, brass, bronze, cast iron, ceramics, copper, carbon steel, hastelloys, inconel, iron, nickel, titanium, wood & zinc.

Our suppliers can offer a wide range of machining processes!

CNC Turning By Qimtek

CNC Turning

Turning is a CNC machining process in which a cutting tool, typically a non-rotary tool bit, describes a helix toolpath by moving more or less linearly while the workpiece rotates.

CNC Milling By Qimtek

CNC Milling

CNC milling is the process of machining using rotary cutters to remove material by advancing a cutter into a workpiece. This may be done in varying directions on one or several axes.

Multi Axis Machining

Multi-Axis Machining

Multi-axis machining is a process that involves tools that move in 4 or more directions. It is used to make parts out of metal or other materials by milling away excess material.

Heavy Machining By Qimtek

Heavy Machining

Large component machining is the practice of machining and fabricating large and heavy parts. This can involve drilling, milling, threading, turning, tapping and horizontal boring work.

Gear Cutting By Qimtek

Gear Cutting

Gear cutting is any CNC machining process used for creating a gear from metals or plastic. The most common gear cutting processes include hobbing, broaching, milling, and grinding.

Wire Erosion From Qimtek

Wire Erosion

Electrical discharge machining, also known as spark eroding,  wire burning or wire erosion, is a machining process whereby a desired shape is obtained by using electrical discharges

‘Working with Qimtek has been a very rewarding and beneficial partnership. We have managed to increase our supplier base significantly, which in turn, has enabled up to keep our customer’s lead times at a minimum. We started using Qimtek in 2017 and now worth of work with 10 different UK suppliers to date through the system. Using Qimtek means we no longer need to spend time researching and vetting suppliers - instead, we use this time to concentrate on other important tasks and I would definitely recommend using Qimtek.’

Buyer from Approved Hydraulics Ltd

I have used Qimtek sourcing service several times, using a Non Disclosure Agreement and I must say, it works very effectively and does the job on sensitive projects. It saves us a lot of time as Qimtek collect the signed NDA's before releasing the drawings to potential suppliers to quote. I'm pleased with the responses coming back, and will be awarding my projects to Qimteks Supplier Members. I would highly recommend using Qimtek sourcing service with or without the nda, it's been successful everytime 

Design Engineer at Compak Ramps Ltd

"In particular, we really like the easy to use Drag, Drop, Source facility. Via this, we have sourced two new suppliers who provided them with high quality end products and confirmed we will be looking to make longstanding relationships with both suppliers. Try it, it costs absolutely nothing – There is nothing we do not like about Qimtek and we will definitely be using the service again!”
