Multi-Axis Machining is a machining process to create complex shapes and angles.
Common machine tools use three axis (X,Y,Z), while multi-axis machines are able to use more axis when approaching workpieces. 5 or 7 axis are the most common, but other machine tools exist. The additional axis make it possible to machine from more angles and to make complex shapes. Another advantage is that more sides of a workpiece can be machined at once, which saves time.
The aerospace and defence industries source a lot of multi-axis machining, especially for airframes, engine blocks, turbine engines and impellers. Workshops that do multi-axis machining are quite rare, particularly for many axis. It is common that the purchasers require their suppliers to have the AS/EN/JISQ 9100 certification, which is the aerospace industry's standard certification.
Machinists are sought to assist with the production of a hinge eye bolt, to be made from mild steel. The buyer in question operates within the automotive industry and spends in excess of £50,000 per year on outsourced machining. They are currently looking to increase their supplier base for this component, which is ordered on a repeat basis.
**Due to the current health climate, we ask that you only submit a quotation for this project if you are in a position to fulfil the requirement. Please also be mindful that there may be a delay in buyer response due to widespread remote working.**
The assistance of a new supplier is required by this company, who spends over £100,000 a year on subcontract machining. They require 5 axis machining of caps which will need to be cut by a third party, for end use within sweet wrapping machinery for the food & beverage industry. This is an ongoing requirement, making it ideal for companies that would like to supplement their long-term customer portfolio.

With an outsourced machining spend of over £50,000 each year, this company has an order to place for this enquiry. They seek a supplier to undertake the turning and threading of the attached stainless steel socket head cap screws. The ideal supplier will be able to produce these parts economically, with an emphasis on reliability and high quality. There is an order to place immediately with a supplier who can offer all of the above.
This manufacturer of carbon fibre products urgently seeks a supplier to provide quotes for the attached set of aluminium parts. Destined for end use within the automotive industry, these parts require milling and drilling in accordance with the drawings provided. There is an immediate order to place for this enquiry and owing to the client's £50,000 annual spend on bespoke machined components, there could be scope for the chosen supplier to develop the relationship moving forward.
This manufacturer of diesel and petrol engine systems seeks partnership with a new supplier to produce the attached mild steel adaptors. This is to incorporate a mixture of processes including turning, milling and splining, and is best suited to those able to complete all processes in-house. There is an order to place for this one-off requirement, with the possibility of additional, similar work to follow.
With an annual machining spend of over £100,000, this company has an order to place for three types of radial housing end caps made from stainless steel material, which will be used within the electronics industry. Quotes are sought for between 20 and 100 off as directed, with repeat orders and ongoing work available for the chosen supplier once a relationship is established. Pricing, quality and reliable delivery are all key factors within this enquiry.
This company is looking for a quick turnaround for the machining of free-issue carbon steel. The successful supplier will be required to machine the top side curve only, using a 4 or 5-axis machine - everything else within the drawings will be completed in-house. Quotes are required for 1 off, with the free-issue material to be delivered directly to the chosen supplier. There is an immediate order to place for this enquiry, and although this is a one-off requirement, there is scope for similar work to be awarded in future as well as this initial enquiry.
This machinist is currently at capacity, and also has an enquiry that they cannot manage comfortably using their own in-house machinery. As such, the buyer would like to hear from suppliers capable of assisting with this project, and is also looking for a new contact to whom they can outsource similar work in the future. Both quotes and delivery are required as soon as possible for this enquiry. As this is for their client, the buyer does not know at this point whether or not this work is to be repeated.
Suppliers with machining capacity are asked to provide a quotation for the attached cushdrive plates in batches of 1 off of each. With a critical deadline of six weeks, this design is to be machined from aluminium for use within a heating product. The company behind this enquiry spends over £10,000 a year on bespoke machined products. As well as having an immediate order to place, they will also require this part on a repeat basis moving forward.
