    Machining-Grinding

    This project calls for grinding to be carried out on a set of free-issue cast machine slides. The nature of the client's business is machinery design and maintenance and thus, they would like to employ the assistance of a third party for repeat orders of the work in question, which is to be carried out to a high standard of quality. Owing to the client's £40,000 machining spend, there may be scope to assist the buyer with additional work alongside this project.

    This company's existing grinding supplier has experienced a machinery breakdown and as a result, quotes are required from Qimtek members for the attached set of four parts. These will all be free-issued, ready to be ground in accordance with the drawings provided. Sizeable quantities of these parts are needed across the set, for which there is an immediate order to place. Suppliers are asked to make contact with the buyer directly to discuss - owing to the client's £70,000 spend on subcontract machining, vendors may also be considered for other projects.

    Machining-Grinding

    This company seeks the assistance of a third party that can remove the plating from one end of an array of mild steel studs. These will be free-issued in large quantities to the successful supplier, meaning that the work may be best suited to those that have an automated process in place.
