Bore and keyway machining


Maintenance and repair specialist Brammer Buck & Hickman has launched a bore and keyway machining service.

The new service covers both horizontal and vertical adaptations. The greatest demand is expected to be in machining customer bore and keyways into pilot bored products such as sprockets and couplings.

Sprockets are stocked either pre-bored to receive a taper lock bush, or as pilot bored versions that can be machined with multiple bore sizes. In addition, a bespoke service is offered enabling modification to off the shelf products.

Darren Smart, Category Director - MRO at Brammer Buck & Hickman, commented: “Whilst we have been providing a basic bore and keyway machining service to customers, up until now this has been outsourced. By investing in state-of-the-art machinery, and staff training, we are delighted to bring this service in-house, for a far more flexible service and a considerably faster turnaround. We can now meet customers’ bespoke requirements and specific tolerances, regardless of whether it is non-standard or has a slightly different fit.”

Brammer Buck & Hickman is part of the Rubix group.
