Qimtek

Process: Machining, Large 1m Plus

Overview

Large machining (Machining large components) is defined by Qimtek as the processes that are carried out in workshops which handle some of the largest components on the market.

Within the category large machining you will find the workshops in Great Britain which handle and manufacture the largest components. When turning, components are sometimes several metres long or the diameter can be more than one metre. Milled components are often more than one metre in all directions.

The purchasers are often in the mining, paper, power, forest or steel industries, and they normally buy one-offs and small volumes. The purchasers look for suppliers with large machine tools, which have lifting capabilities as every workpiece might weigh several tons.
