    Fabrication-Fabrication with Machining

    Suppliers that have the capabilities to machine and fabricate mixing console chassis are sought, on behalf of a company that outsources £500,000 worth of fabrication and machining work each year. These items are destined for end use within communication equipment and the client is looking to increase their supplier base for the parts in question. With a focus on quality and delivery, it is imperative that interested parties are able to offer a reliable and consistent service; in turn, they will be awarded repeat work by the client, as well as the opportunity to assist with the manufacture of additional components on their behalf. The buyer is looking for quotes based on 50 units a year, to be supplied in one drop or potentially two drops. All parts are to be supplied flat packed - no assembly is needed.

    Machining-Machining, Large 1m Plus

    With an annual machining outsource spend of over £1million, this client is looking for a supplier to make the attached ticket rails as a set of two different-sized rods, with different quantities required per set. This project incorporates elements of turning, drilling and tapping, with quotes required for 200 sets of rods which will be sent to different sites. The ideal supplier will be able to produce these parts economically and provide a high-quality end product - once a relationship has been established, further projects could be made available in addition to this initial requirement. Initial samples of the two different rods will be required within 2-3 weeks of request, before the main order is placed to cover the 200 sets. These can be split into smaller batches to suit the chosen supplier.

    Electronic / Electrical-PCB Assembly, Surface Mount

    This new Qimtek client is looking for a suppler to manufacture 1 off PCB board as shown in the photographs provided. However, this is to be a non-working demonstration prop, so only needs to look like the photo - no testing is required. Those that are interested in being considered for this job are asked to make contact with the buyer directly to discuss; in addition, this could result in further opportunities in future once quality and reliability have been proven. Because of the urgent nature of this enquiry, if a suitable quote is found quickly, the work will be awarded early.

    Machining-CNC Machining, Low Volume

    This client has an immediate order to place for several free-issue shafts, covers and gears, which require turning, keyway, boring, drilling and grinding processes. Due to a lack of in-house capacity and short client lead times, this is an urgent requirement, meaning quality and delivery are very important, as is pricing.

  14. Drawings count: 6

    Machining-CNC Machining, Low Volume

    This client is looking for an external supplier to assist them due to a lack of in-house capacity. A supplier is sought to machine the attached plates using free-issue stainless steel material. Processes required for this include turning, milling and drilling, but the heat treatment shown in the drawings is not required. The client has also advised that this will be a one-off requirement, making it an ideal opportunity to fill short-term capacity. The ideal supplier will be able to produce these parts economically, offer reliable delivery due to short client lead times, and provide a high-quality end product - once a relationship has been established, further projects could be made available in addition to this initial enquiry.

    Fabrication-Tube Bending & Manipulation

    This new client is looking for quotes to make 2 off prototypes of a newly-designed spinning wheel which, once in full production, will lead to repeatable work. An order is ready to place which includes mainly tube bending work, with a small amount of laser cutting and powder coating to finish. Assembly of the parts is not required for this initial request, but a high-quality end product is critical. Qimtek members are invited to quote for this work - those based in and around Yorkshire will be seen favourably, although this is not essential.

Quotes are required for 200 off per year, making it an ideal opportunity to fill long-term capacity. The tooling required to press these parts will be free-issued to the chosen supplier. The accuracy of the bend angles is critical, as these forends will be fitted to other parts and therefore high quality is essential. In addition, there may be scope for further work from the client moving forward.

  18. Drawings count: 3

    Machining-Turning, Low Volume

    This client is looking for a new supplier to turn stainless steel roller shafts and bosses - ideally, these parts are to be made using 316 stainless steel, but the buyer will accept 304 stainless steel as an alternative. 12 off each part are required initially, which could also lead to repeatable work as well.
