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.
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.
This metal spinning company, who spends over £250,000 a year on outsourced machining, currently has an urgent requirement for a supplier who can assist with the machining of slots and countersunk holes into a free-issued base plate. There is an immediate order to place for this urgent requirement, with delivery required early May. Therefore, this an ideal enquiry for companies looking to fill immediate capacity. However, it's worth noting that this company outsources large machining on a weekly basis, meaning that there may be scope for the chosen supplier to assist within additional projects going forward.
This metal spinning company is looking to partner with a supplier who can assist with the secondary machining of free-issue castings. Currently spending approximately £250,000 a year on outsourced machining, there is an immediate order to place for this enquiry, which is a one-off requirement at this time. However, please be aware that this company is constantly making new tooling of a similar design and the chosen supplier would be sent these enquiries on a near-weekly basis going forward. Therefore, this is a great opportunity to fill immediate capacity, as well as to win a new long-term customer.
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. The ideal supplier will be able to produce these parts economically and provide a high-quality end product - once a relationship has been established, further projects could be made available in addition to this initial requirement. 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.
A machining supplier is urgently sought, in order to manufacture the attached lower beams within a 14 day lead time. The buyer behind this enquiry has an impressive spend of £100,000 per year on bespoke machining services and currently requires quotes for 1 off. These components will be used within an industrial machinery application, with the client outsourcing their manufacture due to a current lack of in-house capacity. They have an immediate order to place, as well as an ongoing need for these components. Therefore, this is an opportunity to win a new long-term customer, as well as the work in question.
A machining supplier is sought, in order to manufacture the attached lower crossheads and plates.

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 manufacturer of carbon fibre products, who spends over £50,000 a year on bespoke machined components, is looking for a supplier to produce the attached aluminium tooling plate. The client lacks the in-house capability to produce this component due its size - any supplier able to complete this work will receive an immediate order, as well as being invited to tender for future projects of a similar nature.
This client has an immediate order to place for the drilling of 16 holes in a free-issue casting weighing approximately 2000kg. The casting will be available to dispatch to the chosen supplier from 8th March. This is a one-off requirement at this time but could lead to further work in future, once a relationship has been established.
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.
