    Machining-Machining, High Precision

    This new Qimtek client currently seeks suppliers to produce the attached components, destined for end use within the automotive sector. These items require turning and milling and should be produced from various grades of tool steel. The ideal supplier will be able to produce these items to a high degree of precision without jeopardising lead times, whilst also maintaining cost-effective pricing. There is an initial order to place for 1000 off of each item, which is expected to increase exponentially moving forward.

    Machining-Machining, High Precision

    This company is looking for a new supplier to make the attached legacy crankshaft design, to be used within the rail industry. Quotes are required for 5 off, either using free-issue cast iron for machining, or complete supply from mild steel. The client is open to whichever manufacturing process is best to make these crankshafts; however, adherence to the tolerances shown is extremely important and a high-quality end product is sought. Please confirm when quoting whether free-issue materials are required, or if quoting for complete supply. Once a suitable supplier is found, this will lead to repeatable work, making this a great opportunity to work with a large global company within the rail industry.

    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.
