    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.
