    Sheet Metal Forming-Deep Drawing

    Suppliers that have the capabilities to deep draw two different designs of shell are sought, on behalf of a company that outsources over £250,000 worth of fabrication work each year. These items are destined for end use within a pump & valve application and there is an immediate order to place for their production. In addition, the successful supplier will be asked to produce these parts on a repeat basis, making this an opportunity to win a new long-term customer as well as the work in question.

    This new buyer to Qimtek specialises in the design and manufacture of specialist systems and components for the nuclear sector. They seek a new supplier for the attached clips and clamps. The buyer behind this enquiry has a sizeable outsourcing spend of £100,000 per annum on fabrication processes. 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.

    Sheet Metal Forming-Heavy Sheet Metal (6mm+)

    This manufacturer who specialises in bespoke product development for intense conditions, who themselves outsource approximately £1,000,000 worth of fabrication work each year, is in need of suppliers who can assist with the production of the attached clamps. Although there is no immediate order to place for this enquiry, this is very likely to follow once the quotations have been submitted. Although this is a one-off requirement, the chosen supplier may be asked to quote for additional, similar enquiries going forward.

    Machining-CNC Machining, Low Volume

    This regular Qimtek buyer has an annual spend of over £70,000 on varied machining designs and has an immediate order to place for the attached closing spring caps, which will be used within the energy industry. Quotes are sought for 50 off, to be supplied with a natural finish. The hardening process is optional - please see the important information section for more details. Due to the urgent turnaround required, delivery timescales are of the utmost importance for this enquiry. This could also lead to ongoing work 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.
