    Machining-Turning, Medium Volume

    This new buyer to Qimtek specialises in integrator systems for the automotive and aerospace industries. They seek a supplier for the attached pins and bushes, for which there is an immediate order to place. These parts are to be used within the aerospace sector as part of a screw jack system which assists the building of plane wings. Quotes are required for 84 off bushes and 21 off of each of the two sizes of pins. Once a supplier is found, this may also lead to future work in addition to this initial requirement.

    Machining-Turning, Low Volume

    This client, a manufacturer of industrial machinery who spends £350,000 a year on outsourced machining, currently seeks a supplier for immediate production of the attached range of turned components. There is an immediate order to place for these parts and the client has advised that the chosen supplier will also be asked to quote for similar enquiries moving forward. Although this is currently a one-off requirement, these components are to be repeated in line with customer demand; however, the frequency may vary and is not known at this stage.

    Machining-Turning, Low Volume

    This designer of bespoke furniture, who has a yearly outsourcing spend that tops £20,000, would like to hear from suppliers interested in assisting with the machining of the attached range of threaded components. This is currently a one-off requirement for a bespoke design, although it may lead to future orders of the same parts which will still be low quantities as they are order-driven. This project may also lead to additional enquiries of a similar nature for the chosen supplier, once a relationship has been established.

  4. Drawings count: 1

    Machining-CNC Machining, Low Volume

    A new buyer to Qimtek, who operates within the nuclear industry, seeks a new supplier for the attached actuator nut. The parts will be supplied free-issue and finished machined, less the thread. 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.

  5. Drawings count: 1

    Machining-Turning, Low Volume

    Suppliers with the capacity to machine the attached ejector pin wax nozzles are sought, by a manufacturer of cast products that spends a sizeable £100,000 per annum on outsourced machining services. Quotes for 1 off & 10 off are required for end use within an automotive application. Pricing and a quality end product is of vital importance and quotes are required for the 23rd October. As well as future batches, the buyer may also request the services of the successful supplier within other projects, due to the abundance of similar work outsourced.

  6. Drawings count: 6

    Machining-CNC Machining, Low Volume

    This cryogenics research facility is currently in urgent need of quotations for the attached stainless steel and bronze components. Spending approximately £50,000 per year on outsourced machining, the client has advised that there is an immediate order to place for this enquiry. Although this is a one-off requirement, the chosen supplier may be asked to quote for projects of a similar nature going forward, once a relationship has been established.

  7. Drawings count: 1

    Machining-Turning, High Volume

    Quotes are urgently required for the manufacture of the attached components from free-issue copper bronze. The buyer - a company that spends upwards of £50,000 a year on outsourced machining services - seeks immediate assistance, as delivery is urgently required. This has the potential to become an ongoing requirement, best-suited to suppliers who can fulfil similar orders every two months.

  8. Drawings count: 2

    Machining-Turning, High Volume

    This company has an annual spend of over £50,000 on outsourced machining work and has an urgent order to place for the attached DC controllers, which will be used within electronics equipment. Quotes are required for either mild steel or bronze material, with price breaks of between 288 and 1000 off to ensure best value. Reliable delivery is crucial for this enquiry and pricing is also important. Either material using any grade will be suitable for the end product's use and therefore, pricing will dictate which material the client proceeds with. This enquiry will lead to repeat orders, meaning it will be suitable for those with immediate capacity who are also looking for long-term work from a new buyer.

  9. Drawings count: 2

    Machining-CNC Machining, Low Volume

    This buyer, a company that specialises in the manufacture of pneumatic control equipment and spends £50,000 a year on bespoke machined components, seeks a new supplier for the machining of cam blocks and screws, which are destined for use within a marine application. This work involves elements of thread cutting, milling, turning and chamfering. The client's ideal supplier will be able to produce these parts economically and to a high standard, whilst maintaining reliable delivery of 3 weeks. There is an immediate order to place for this one-off requirement, with potential for additional, ongoing work to be made available to the chosen supplier.

  10. Drawings count: 1

    Machining-CNC Machining, Low Volume

    A supplier is sought for the machining of free-issue aluminium bronze, on behalf of a £50,000-spending precision machining company that currently lacks the capacity to produce the parts in-house. This will likely become an ongoing requirement for the successful supplier, meaning that this may be an ideal opportunity for those with both long-term and immediate capacity to fill.

  11. Drawings count: 2

    Machining-CNC Machining, Low Volume

    This company spends an astronomical £19million a year on the production of bespoke machined components. They are currently looking to improve on quality and lead times in this area and subsequently seek quotes for the attached set of stainless steel, aluminium and bronze washers, pins and rings. This is a massive opportunity for subcontract suppliers that have the necessary capabilities in place, and should not be missed by those that are looking to supplement their customer portfolio with big-spending accounts. This particular project is a one-off request; however, the client has indicated that once quality has been proven, this will lead to similar work going forward. Please note that due to the confidentiality surrounding these parts, signed NDAs will be forwarded onto the buyer for approval before drawings can be released. Therefore, there may be a short time delay before drawings are released.

    These free-issue gears, made from aluminium bronze, are to be machined using the milling/keyway process to the specifications shown on the attached drawing, on behalf of a company that spends over £240,000 per year on bespoke machined designs. Quotes are required for 2 off and the client has also advised that this will be an one-off requirement, making it an ideal opportunity to fill short-term capacity. In addition, there may be scope for the chosen supplier to expand upon their involvement with the client moving forward.

    Quotes are required for a set of piece parts, which will be assembled by the client in-house. They seek a supplier that can offer delivery by the 5th June, making this a great opportunity to fill immediate capacity; in turn, the successful supplier will also be invited to assist on a repeat basis moving forward. The set of parts comprises a number of different materials and processes, and the client is looking for external assistance due to a current lack of capacity. They spend a massive £500,000 annually on bespoke components and will favour a prompt response from interested parties.
