    Fabrication-Fabrication with Machining

    This project is compiled of several parts which - when assembled - will create a chainsaw guard. There are many fabrication and machining processes required to manufacture this full request - the client has also confirmed that if welding capabilities are not available, the supplier is to state this within their quotation, as the client can weld the parts together if needed. The client is over capacity and therefore, they are looking for a new supplier to manufacture these components on their behalf. The ideal supplier will be able to manufacture these designs economically with a quality finish, within a 3-4 week lead time. This will lead to ongoing work, once the initial request of 10 off assemblies is completed.

  15. Drawings count: 1

    Machining-Machining, Large 1m Plus

    This client is looking for a new supplier to manufacture the attached pre-splined centre pinion. The pinion is to be peeled, stress-relieved, then ground to a high tolerance finish. The client welcomes quotes using all of these processes, but if not all processes can be completed, suppliers are still invited to quote and confirm which of these processes are included. Once the first 3 off pinions at 3000mm are completed and signed off, this can lead to ongoing work of approximately 30 off per year. ADDITIONAL: The client has confirmed they are happy to accept smaller lengths of 10 off at 1150mm lengths instead of 3 off at 3000mm lengths. Please confirm the length you are submitting within your quote.

    This is a huge opportunity for suppliers with dual fabrication and machining capabilities who have immediate capacity to fill. This buyer currently spends over £3million annually on bespoke fabricated and machined parts and has an immediate requirement for a fabricated robot base. Because this is for a new client of the buyer, the quality of the finished product is extremely important. Although this particular project is a one-off requirement, the buyer will also look to send lots of similar work to the chosen supplier after this initial request, so this could lead to fantastic opportunities for ongoing orders to be placed directly.
