    Machining-Machining, Large 1m Plus

    Spending £240,000 on subcontract machining services every year, this client is looking for a new supplier to create 4 off 3 metre lengths of each of the attached drawings, using both mild steel and stainless steel materials. This will lead to annual repeatable work of approximately 6 lengths of each size and material, totalling approximately 24 lengths per year. Quality and pricing is key for this requirement and once the relationship is established, this could also lead to further work in addition to this initial request.

    Machining-Machining, Large 1m Plus

    This client is looking for best price and lead times for three sizes of flow tube, all of which are to be made from aluminium to a high quality standard and anodised as part of the finishing process. Please note there is no drawing for the longest size; however, please refer to 10-107, as the length is the only difference. Although the quantities requested for these parts are relatively low, this will lead to repeatable orders and could also pave the way to similar work in addition to these parts.

    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.
