  1. Drawings count: 1

    Profiling-Plasma Cutting

    This Qimtek member urgently seeks quotes from supplier who are able to produce the attached 40mm plates from mild steel. There is an immediate order to place for 2 off of these plates with the possibility of ongoing batches to follow.

  2. Drawings count: 1

    Machining-CNC Machining, Medium Volume

    This spinning supplier, who themselves outsource approximately £250,000 worth of machining each year, is in the process of quoting for the complete manufacture of an assembly. Subsequently, they require the assistance of a machinist who can produce the attached range of components. Quotes are required urgently as the client needs to submit their quotation by 29th November; therefore, interested suppliers are asked to make contact at their earliest convenience. Should the buyer be successful in their tender, this will be followed by an immediate order with delivery sought in the first quarter of 2020. This is then expected to be repeated approximately two or three times per year, with the frequency/quantity set to increase going forward.

    Machining-Turning, Medium Volume

    This Qimtek member has an immediate order to place for the attached steel pins, which will be used within the military. Quotes are required for 130 off at this time. Their current supplier has confirmed a much longer lead time than usual, leading the client to source from outside of their existing supplier base. Further to this initial requirement, the successful vendor may be asked to lend their services to additional projects moving forward.

  4. Drawings count: 2

    Full turnkey-Machining with Fabrication

    This £250,000-spending buyer, who specialises in spinning services, is currently looking for suppliers who can assist with a prospective new order which cannot be completely managed in-house. The ideal supplier will be able to cut the tube as attached, as well as turning and tapping the solid bar. Although there is no immediate order to place, once the client has given approval, there will be an order to follow which will be repeated monthly for at least a year. However, this could be extended if the client is happy with the quality.

  5. Drawings count: 1

    Machining-Milling, Medium Volume

    The attached flowmeter cover is required for end use within the defence/military industry. The client is looking for a supplier that has both the capabilities and the capacity to mill, drill and possibly bend this part, which has previously been produced via a casting method. The client spends a sizeable £250,000 a year on machined parts and has advised that there may well be similar work available for the chosen supplier moving forward.

  6. Drawings count: 3

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

    Quotes are currently sought for the attached base and lid - with a waterproof gasket - as part of a job for which the client is currently tendering. These items are to be made from 1mm thick mild steel in accordance with the drawings provided. These designs are a bespoke version of an off-the-shelf item that the end user has previously utilised; subsequently, ballpark prices and lead time estimations are required by Friday at the latest. The client's yearly fabrication spend of £50,000 means that there is scope for the relationship to be developed further.

  7. Drawings count: 1


    A manufacturer of Computer Operation Trackerballs, who spends £50,000 annually on outsourced machining, currently seeks a new supplier who can photo etch the attached stainless steel component. Although this is a one-off requirement, the successful supplier may be able to offer assistance with several other designs which are to follow shortly.

Interested parties are asked to make contact with the buyer at their earliest convenience in order to be considered for the opportunity.
