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.
This regular Qimtek buyer is looking for a supplier to make these new designs of bars and shoulder screws, which will form machine assembly tools for the renewable energy industry. Quotes are required for 1 off of each of the bar lengths and 2 off shoulder bolts. Although this particular enquiry is a one-off request, it may also lead to similar, ongoing work in addition to this initial requirement. Please note that reliable delivery is of the highest importance to this buyer.
This client, a manufacturer of thermoforming equipment, seek assistance from a supplier who can machine the attached selection of components.This project is best suited to those able to mill items over 1 meter in length and facilitate small amount of drilling and tapping that is also required. There is an immediate order to place for this enquiry, with possible additional work to follow.
This manufacture of conveyor belt systems urgently seeks the assistance of a machining supplier with the capacity to produce the attached cooling tube blank. Suppliers are asked to grind the tubes to the required outside diameter, as well as cutting them to the correct length. There is an immediate order to place for 66 off, with an additional batch of 32 off to follow.
This manufacturing company, who specialises in the manufacture of pipework products and outsources approximately £500,000 worth of machining each year, is currently in need of a supplier who can machine the attached flywheel from solid. The part in question hasn't been required in a number of years and therefore, there is no longer a supplier in place. There is an immediate order to place for this enquiry, with delivery required by mid-November. This will be a one-off requirement, although it may lead to additional enquiries of a similar nature for the chosen supplier, once a relationship has been established.
This company specialises in design and manufacture of rod rigging systems for both the marine and construction industries. They seek quotes as soon as possible for the inside hole to be bored as to the attached drawings, followed by honing to the indicated finish. All other work shown within the drawings is not required. The aluminium material will be free-issued and cut to approximately 5-10mm longer than the drawing lengths. Diameters are also slightly larger than the drawings and not machined. Please quote your best price and lead time for the boring and honing work; quotes received quickly will be seen favourably due to the short lead times required for two of the sizes. There is also scope for additional work to follow this initial project.
This manufacturer of conveyor systems has an immediate requirement for the attached drums. This company currently spends over £100,000 a year on subcontract machining services, although the branch in question only opened earlier this year and this figure is expected to grow. There is an immediate order to place, with delivery required at the supplier's earliest convenience. This is a one-off requirement at the moment, although it may be repeated in line with client orders in the future.
This buyer - who specialises in the manufacture of screening and crushing equipment - seeks a new supplier for the finish machining of free-issue frame parts. They have a massive outsourcing spend of £1million per annum on all machined components and would like to collaborate with Qimtek members who can offer flexibility, reliability and a durable end product. The buyer would like to receive quotes as soon as possible, as they have an immediate order to place.
This manufacturer of processing equipment - who operates within the medical/scientific sector and spends £185,000 annually on outsourced manufacture - seeks a supplier with the in-house capabilities to produce a selection of large machined items from aluminium alloy. There will be an immediate order to place for the successful supplier, with ongoing work to follow. These items range from 1.5 metres to 2.9 metres in length and require cutting, drilling, milling and chamfering.
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.
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.
