    This client is looking for a new supplier to manufacture these concentricity gauges, which have high-precision threading requirements. Quotes are required for 2 off, with repeatable work available. Two sets of drawings have been provided, which have different ways to manufacture the same component. Qimtek members are invited to quote for both drawings, or just one drawing if both cannot be completed due to the complexity of what's required to make these gauges. Accuracy of the threading and delivery are the most important aspects of this enquiry. Please submit your best price and lead times to be considered for this opportunity.

    Machining-Machining, High Precision

    This new Qimtek member is looking for 2 to 4 off large mild steel discs to be machined ready for use within the marine industry. This enquiry is currently in the early concept stage, so the design may alter slightly before the order is placed. Heat treatment to 50 Rockwell may also be required, although it is not confirmed at this time. If you are also able to offer the heat treatment process, please quote with and without heat treatment separately. Quality and accuracy of these parts is critical and once a relationship is established, it will also lead to repeatable work for the chosen supplier. 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 for this reason.
