    Machining-Machining with Fabrication

    This company is looking for a new supplier to make this air compressor delivery silencer, which will be used within the rail industry.

This project incorporates elements of machining, fabrication, galvanising, assembly and testing; therefore, it will be well-suited to versatile suppliers with a multitude of in-house capabilities. Although it is a one-off requirement at this time, there will be the opportunity for similar work going forward, once a new supplier is chosen.

    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.

    Fabrication-General Fabrication (over 1 tonne)

    This growing manufacturer of steam locomotives are currently over-capacity and are looking for a new supplier to assist with the manufacture of 2 off full-size water tanks. The tank capacities are 4600 gallons of water and 9 tonnes of coal and are to be formed of mild steel sheet metal in 6mm and 10mm thicknesses (or imperial measurement equivalents). The client has provided two options, and has no particular preference when choosing a supplier: 1) provide all the profiled parts unassembled for the client to construct the tanks themselves, or 2) profile all the parts and then assemble before delivery. The sketch drawings are for the 4600 gallon tank parts which is a slight modification to the original 4000 gallon tank design. The assembly drawing is for the original 4000 gallon capacity tank. The increase of 600 gallons capacity is provided by the provision of two additional sumps to the underside of the tank. No leak testing is required if assembly is completed, because additional parts will be added to the tanks by the client before leak tests are performed at a later stage. Due to the nature of these tanks, quality is paramount regardless of which of the two options is undertaken. There is an immediate order to place with other work available once a relationship is established.
