    Plastic & Rubber-GRP Moulding

    Working within the rail industry, this buyer seeks assistance from a supplier to design and manufacture fibreglass sheet covers to be used within the north-running tunnel of the Eurotunnel. Although this is a one-off requirement the chosen supplier could also be asked to complete similar work throughout the project. **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.**

    Full turnkey-Fabrication with Machining

    This client is looking for a new supplier that can manufacture and spray paint wooden shelters on an ad-hoc basis. They would like to form a long-term relationship with the chosen supplier for the ongoing production of these designs over many years, in similar quantities. The supplier must be able to collate the additional metal parts and dispatch to site along with the wrapped wooden shelter parts. Dispatch is 'point to point', as each shelter is required on a fixed install date. There is also scope for the chosen supplier to win additional work from the client, making this an excellent opportunity to fill long-term capacity. **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.**

    Machining-Machining, Plastics

    Destined for use within the rail industry, the attached pipe clamp is to be milled from nylon. The client requires 4300 off of this item and would like to place future work with an external supplier who can offer a high standard of quality. This forms part of a larger job for which the client is currently tendering; if successful, there is a possibility that this could become an ongoing requirement. In addition, the buyer may look to place more of their £50,000 annual machining spend with the supplier that they choose for this project. **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.**

    Profiling-Laser Cutting

    Outsourcing approximately £100,000 worth of sheet metal work each year, this engineering design consultancy is currently in need of a profiling supplier capable of supplying the attached plates with the required coating. With an immediate order to place for this enquiry, the buyer has indicated that this is currently a one-off requirement for a large project and as such, the chosen supplier may also be asked to supply additional components of a similar nature moving forward, once a relationship has been established. **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.**

    Sheet Metal Forming-General Sheet Metal (2mm to 6mm)

    A sheet metal supplier is required for an immediate prototyping requirement. The buyer - a company that spends over £100,000 a year on subcontract fabrication services - seeks production of the attached sets of aluminium assemblies. This is a pre-production order and due to the grade of aluminium required, the material will be free-issued. With an immediate order to place for this enquiry, the buyer has indicated that this is very likely to be repeated in much larger volumes going forward, once the prototypes have been tested in place. **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.**

    Machining-Turning, Medium Volume

    This company is working on a new project and is looking for quotes for the attached set of 10 male and female flanges of various sizes, made from stainless steel. Quotes are sought for 10, 25, 50 and 100 off sets, and the buyer has commented that quotes received quickly may be at an advantage. Quality and pricing are key elements to this enquiry, and there is also scope for additional work once this initial enquiry is complete.

  7. Drawings count: 3

    Sheet Metal Forming-Fine Limit Sheet Metal (up to 2mm)

    This luxury furniture manufacturer is currently quoting for a project and requires the assistance of a sheet metal supplier to manufacture the attached components from stainless steel. These will be used within a rail application. Although there is no immediate order to place, should the buyer be successful in their tender, the order will follow shortly after. Initially, the client requires prototypes of these parts, which could lead to much larger orders once approved.

  8. Drawings count: 3

    Machining-Milling, Low Volume

    This luxury furniture manufacturer is currently quoting for a project and requires the assistance of a machinist who can produce the attached components from copper and aluminium alloy. These parts will be used within a rail application. Although there is no immediate order to place, should the buyer be successful in their tender, the order will follow shortly after. Initially, the client will require prototypes of these parts, which could lead to larger orders once approved.

  9. Drawings count: 3

    Sheet Metal Forming-Presswork

    This Qimtek member is looking for a supplier to partner with for this project, to create display screens using presswork which will be used within the rail industry. Quotes are required for the largest size within the set of drawings only, however, when the order is placed, all sizes will be available to manufacture. Tooling is also required. Pricing, good quality and reliable delivery are all important factors within this project. Those that are interested in being considered for this job are asked to make contact with the buyer directly to discuss; in addition, this could result in further opportunities once quality and reliability have been proven.

    Sheet Metal Forming-Fine Limit Sheet Metal (up to 2mm)

    This manufacturing consultancy company, who outsource approximately £100,000 worth of fabrication a year, have an urgent requirement for the attached cover plate assemblies on behalf of their client who operates within rail industry. There is an immediate order to place for this one-off requirement, with delivery required as soon as possible. Interested parties are asked to submit their quotation at their earliest convenience and quote their best possible lead time and delivery.

    Fabrication-General Fabrication (over 1 tonne)

    This growing manufacturer of steam locomotives are currently over-capacity and are looking for a new supplier to assist with the manufacture of 2 off full-size water tanks. The tank capacities are 4600 gallons of water and 9 tonnes of coal and are to be formed of mild steel sheet metal in 6mm and 10mm thicknesses (or imperial measurement equivalents). The client has provided two options, and has no particular preference when choosing a supplier: 1) provide all the profiled parts unassembled for the client to construct the tanks themselves, or 2) profile all the parts and then assemble before delivery. The sketch drawings are for the 4600 gallon tank parts which is a slight modification to the original 4000 gallon tank design. The assembly drawing is for the original 4000 gallon capacity tank. The increase of 600 gallons capacity is provided by the provision of two additional sumps to the underside of the tank. No leak testing is required if assembly is completed, because additional parts will be added to the tanks by the client before leak tests are performed at a later stage. Due to the nature of these tanks, quality is paramount regardless of which of the two options is undertaken. There is an immediate order to place with other work available once a relationship is established.
