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.

    Machining-Machining, Large 1m Plus

    Destined for end use within forecourt safety valves, the attached trolley stems are to be milled, tapped, drilled and anodised from a combination of aluminium and stainless steel. Quotes are required for 25/50 off of the aluminium design and 10 off of the stainless steel stem, for which the client will have an order to place. Therefore, they seek clarification of the associated costs and lead times surrounding this requirement. Owing to the client's £50,000 spend in the subcontract machining sphere, additional opportunities could be made available to the chosen supplier once a relationship has been established.

    With an annual machining outsource spend of over £1million, this client is looking for a supplier to make the attached ticket rails as a set of two different-sized rods, with different quantities required per set. This project incorporates elements of turning, drilling and tapping, with quotes required for 200 sets of rods which will be sent to different sites.

Initial samples of the two different rods will be required within 2-3 weeks of request, before the main order is placed to cover the 200 sets. These can be split into smaller batches to suit the chosen supplier.

    Machining-Machining, Large 1m Plus

    This client is looking for assistance to machine 12 pads and 8 holes within 3 different sizes of free-issue frame assemblies, due to over-capacity in-house. This will lead to future order requests due to an overload, so a long-term relationship is sought. This initial enquiry is urgent with a request to complete the machining work within 2 weeks of receipt of the free-issue assemblies, if at all possible. Accuracy of the hole placements is critically important, as is the delivery turnaround time; therefore, this enquiry will be suitable for Qimtek members with immediate capacity. As the client spends a massive £1million per year in the subcontract machining sphere, there could be scope for the chosen supplier to diversify into additional requirements moving forward.

    This buyer, a company who outsources in the region of £200,000 of machining work per annum, is looking for a supplier to produce the attached draw bars from S355 steel. The bars measure up to 1900mm in length and therefore, interested suppliers must have the capabilities to produce components of this size. There is an urgent order to place, so this enquiry could be closed early if the right supplier is found. Those that are interested in being considered for this project are asked to submit their quotation at their earliest convenience.
