    Casting-Sand Casting

    Currently outsourcing approximately £250,000 worth of casting each year, this spinning manufacturer is looking for a subcontract casting supplier who can assist with their bespoke project requirements. Each project requires a different casting in low volumes, although so far this year, 12 castings of this nature have been completed. Rather than finding a new supplier for each project, the buyer is looking to form an ongoing relationship with a supplier who can assist with each of their requirements going forward. The parts indicated in the attached drawings are provided purely for quotation purposes, however, there will be an order of a similar nature placed shortly. This will lead to additional orders going forward, once a relationship has been established.

    This company requires quotes for 1488 off sets of cast spheres, which will be connected to pipework and used to hold fibre-optic cables on overhead power lines. The client has confirmed that the casting method is not critical and therefore, they are open to exploring the possibility of alternative casting methods. The accuracy of the diameter of where the pipes are attached is extremely important; it must be no larger than Ø 34.7mm when assembled. Good value pricing is also a high priority for this enquiry. The company holds the pattern which will be free-issued to the chosen supplier. Once cast, these spheres are then assembled using 16 off cap head screws. Please confirm within your quote if you are able to assemble these spheres or if you are to provide the cast half-pieces only. This is just one project out of a large quantity that the buyer outsources, meaning there is scope for the chosen supplier to win additional work once a relationship has been cultivated.
