    Machining-Turning, Low Volume

    This company is looking for a new supplier to make the attached stainless steel tubes, which will become cell holders for use within industrial machinery. This is usually done in-house but due to being over capacity, the client is now looking to outsource this work going forward. Accuracy and quality is very important; the client has confirmed the ID and OD measurements given need to be exact, with no sharp edges or surface scratches visible on the end products. Quotes are sought for 25 off at this time, with similar volumes required on an annual basis.

  10. Drawings count: 1

    Machining-Turning, Low Volume

    This company is looking for a supplier to make the attached copper cylinder heads, which will be used within industrial machinery. Quotes are required for 2 off at this time. The client has confirmed that an early quote will secure a better chance of success, due to the urgent nature of this enquiry. The client is happy to accept quotes for complete supply and/or free-issue copper material - please confirm this within your quotation. Because of the urgency of the quotation period, should a suitable quote come in quickly, this enquiry will be awarded early.

    Tool Making-Mould Tools

    Quotes for a three-part compression mould tool are needed, on behalf of a manufacturer of vacuum lifting equipment whose annual spend in the subcontract machining market tops £20,000 a year. They are keen to establish contact with a supplier that specialises in the toolmaking arena and has the capacity available to undertake the work - a one-off requirement, which could also pave the way for future opportunities.

    Machining-Turning, Medium Volume

    This company has a requirement for 150 off aluminium inserts, which are to be made using turning, drilling and chamfering processes. The client has advised that the material specification and finishing requirements are critical and they cannot accept any alternatives. A high-quality end product is important, along with pricing and reliable delivery. The timescales for delivery can either be for all 150 off, or a part order of 50 off with the balance to follow shortly afterwards. Because this company's own machine shop is over-capacity, they are now looking to outsource this part, which will lead to annual volumes of 150 off once a relationship has been established.

    Machining-Machining, High Precision

    With an annual spend of over £30,000 on subcontract machining, this company seeks a new supplier to manufacture these parts, leading to regular orders of these and similar designs going forward. For this initial enquiry, they are looking for 2 sets of 4 off (8 off in total) high precision machined jaws, and 1 off mount scroll, complete with 176 teeth, which will also suit members with high precision gear cutting capabilities. The client is outsourcing this work as a result of a change in business strategy. Accuracy of tolerances, quality and value of all these parts is critical, and once a new supplier is found, this will lead to regular, repeat orders for these sizes and for different sizes as well, therefore it will make an ideal opportunity for those seeking a new client for a long-term relationship.
