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, Large 1m Plus projects for quote

  1. Drawings count: 2

    Machining-Machining, Large 1m Plus

    This client, a manufacturer of electrical equipment, seeks a supplier with the capabilities to produce a set of press strips that exceed 1.2 metres in length. These items require cutting, drilling and tapping and should be produced from hot rolled mild steel black bar. There is both an immediate order to place for these items and ongoing work to follow for the successful supplier.

  2. Drawings count: 1

    Machining-Machining, Large 1m Plus

    This company has an order to place for aluminium carrier rails which are to be produced from aluminium imperial unequal channel section. These items are to be cut and drilled, with an estimated total of 10 off 12mm ID holes drilled into the longer side and 6 holes drilled into the shorter side - the exact number and location of these drilled holes is to be confirmed at the time of order. As such, please quote budgetary prices at this stage. The client has confirmed that fabrication DWG and DXF files will be provided with the order when it is placed with the chosen supplier. Quotes are sought for 300 off lengths, each length being 2.4m long. Because this is a new design, these measurements and details are currently approximate so may change slightly, but this will be communicated fully with the chosen supplier before the order is placed. Repeatable work is also available, making this an excellent opportunity to fill long-term capacity. Free-issue material can be supplied for this enquiry, or complete supply if preferred. Please confirm which option you are quoting for.

    Machining-Machining, Large 1m Plus

    This client is looking for quotations for 1000, 2000 and 4000 off core cleaning brushes, which will be used within industrial printing machinery. Quality and accuracy to the drawings is key, as is the price. When the quotation period is over and an order is ready to place, the lead time for the initial samples is required to be 4-6 weeks from date of order, to allow enough time for the quality and accuracy to be checked before the main bulk of the requirement is ordered. This is a redesign and therefore, the finished product may differ slightly when the client is ready to move forward.

    Machining-Machining, Large 1m Plus

    This manufacturer of medical equipment, who outsources in excess of £500,000 worth of machining work per year, is looking for a supplier who can machine a large free-issue aluminium plate. The processes involved within this project are vertical boring, turning and milling. The parts are required within 10/12 weeks and therefore, suppliers able to offer quality manufacture and prompt delivery are eagerly sought.

  5. Drawings count: 2

    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.

  6. Drawings count: 1

    Machining-Machining, Large 1m Plus
