    Sheet Metal Forming-Punching

    Suppliers with CNC punching capacity are asked to provide a quotation for free-issue lamination sheets, which are required for use within a medical application. The client seeks a second-source supplier for these items, as well as the possible production of similar parts moving forward. They spend a massive £500,000 a year on bespoke fabricated components, meaning that there is plenty of scope for the chosen supplier to develop the relationship. Please note that the overall quality of these parts is paramount.

    This manufacturer of medical equipment currently seeks the assistance of a machinist who can produce samples - as well as ongoing batch quantities - of the new screw design attached. This project incorporates a range of processes, including threading, tapping, and milling. There is an immediate order to place for this requirement, alongside a range of similar components. Moving forward, this will be repeated in line with customer demand, with the stated quantities expected to increase over time.

  11. Drawings count: 1

    Profiling-Laser Cutting

    This manufacturer of processing equipment - who operates within the medical/scientific sector and spends £185,000 annually on outsourced manufacture - urgently seeks a supplier who can assist with manufacture of the attached mounting plates. There is an immediate order to place for this enquiry and although it is currently a one-off requirement, it may lead to additional enquiries of a similar nature for the chosen supplier, once a relationship has been established.

  12. Drawings count: 4

    Machining-CNC Machining, Medium Volume

    This global manufacturer of photonics equipment seeks a supplier to produce a selection of aluminium, stainless steel and brass components. This work involves aspects of milling, drilling and turning, as well as a variety of finishes. The ideal supplier will be able to offer competitive pricing, without jeopardising the quality of the components.

  13. Drawings count: 2

    Machining-Turning, Low Volume

    This buyer, a global manufacturer of photonics equipment, seeks a supplier who is able to produce the attached adaptor insert on their behalf. This work is best-suited to those with the capabilities to produce small items to a high standard. The ideal supplier will be able to offer competitive pricing, without jeopardising the quality of the components. In turn, the successful party can expect to receive repeat orders moving forward.

  14. Drawings count: 3

    Profiling-Laser Cutting

    This new buyer to Qimtek is looking for a laser cutting supplier to make the attached aluminium apertures, which will be used as part of medical/scientific testing devices; however, please be aware that this particular section will be nowhere near the samples to be tested when the device is in use. Advice is also sought for the best grade of aluminium to suit and the buyer is also open to discuss the size of the rounded edge radii during the design stage. Pricing is most important within this enquiry, with quotes requested for 1 off and 5 off. Once full production commences, increased volumes will be required, estimated to start at the beginning of next year.

  15. Drawings count: 5

    Machining-Turning, Medium Volume

    This company specialises in the manufacture of endoscopes and has an order to place for the attached connectors and adaptors. Quotes are required for between 10 and 100 off of each part, with repeat orders available for the chosen supplier. Pricing, a quality end product and delivery timescales are all important considerations within this enquiry. Please note that quotes are only required for the machining - the anodising directed on one of the drawings is not required. Owing to the client's annual spend of £100,000 on subcontract machining processes, there may be further opportunities available for the chosen supplier moving forward.

    Finishing-Wet painting

    The scientific testing centre at the University of Liverpool has undertaken a new photolysis (separation of molecules by light) project and are in need of a supplier who can assist them by applying an opaque coat to a high volume of free-issued test vials. This coating is to absorb all visible light (example photos attached) and would ideally block UV rays as well, thus protecting the contained substance from exterior light, which interferes with test results. This is a one-off requirement with an immediate order to place and therefore, interested suppliers are asked to make contact at their earliest convenience.
