    Machining-Grinding

    Surface grinding of free-issue pins is needed, on behalf of a company that places £40,000 a year into the subcontract machining market. They are outsourcing this process due to a current lack of in-house capacity and would like to speak with suppliers that can offer a high level of quality, as well as good value. There is an immediate order to place for 500 off, which the client has advised is very likely to repeat moving forward.

    Machining-Grinding

    Centreless grinding of silver steel bar is needed, in order to make the attached tower jig pin. The client - a company that places £100,000 into the subcontract machining market annually - seeks the assistance of a supplier that can offer a high standard of quality and reliable delivery. They have an immediate order to place for 10 off of this design, which could result in further work being placed with the successful supplier moving forward.

    Machining-Grinding

    Centreless grinding of brass valve lift spindles is needed, on behalf of a company that outsources machining work to the tune of £50,000 per year.

Moving forward, this will become an ongoing requirement, paving the way for the chosen supplier to develop the relationship and gain a new long-term customer.

    Machining-Grinding

    Destined for end use within a medical application, the three attached parts require surface grinding in accordance with the client's specifications.

    Machining-Grinding

    Qimtek members are invited to quote for the grinding of free-issue components. The company behind this enquiry outsources machining work to the tune of £20,000 a year and has an immediate order to place for 100 off of each item, with potential for repeat orders at a later phase of the project. Those with the ongoing capacity available to assist are asked to contact the buyer directly to discuss.

  11. Drawings count: 5

    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.

  12. Drawings count: 5

    Machining-Grinding

    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.
