    Machining-CNC Machining, Low Volume

    This company, who specialise in the manufacture of bespoke hydraulic cylinders, seek a supplier to produce the attached piston valve liner. These are to be produced from pearlitic cast iron and require aspects of turning, drilling and milling. The material will be free-issued to the chosen vendor and therefore, quotes are required for the machining only. The ongoing nature of this requirement may make it especially appealing to suppliers with ongoing capacity to fill.

    Machining-CNC Machining, Low Volume

    This client is looking for a new supplier to assist with the finish machining of free-issue iron castings, as well as complete supply of several stainless steel components using turning and milling processes. Quotes are required for between 2 off and 32 off per component and the client has also advised that this will be an ongoing requirement, making it an ideal opportunity to fill long-term capacity. In addition, there may be scope for the chosen supplier to expand upon their involvement with the client moving forward.

    Machining-Turning, Low Volume

    This client has an urgent requirement to machine a free-issue brake disc for use within the automotive industry. Due to sudden over-capacity, they are looking to outsource this work. Owing to the short lead times involved, should a suitable supplier be found quickly, the work will be awarded early. Please provide your best price and lead time at your earliest opportunity to be considered.

    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. This is currently a one-off requirement, but could lead to similar work going forward.

    Machining-Turning, Low Volume

    Quotes are required on the attached hub and sleeve designs, which are to be made from cast iron and plastic, respectively. The company behind this enquiry spends over £50,000 a year in the subcontract machining sphere; currently, they are looking to improve on the associated lead times for the manufacture of these items, which are ordered on a repeat basis. Therefore, the client would like to build a relationship with a Qimtek member who assist with their ongoing supply.

    Machining-Turning, Low Volume

    A supplier is sought for the machining of free-issue cast iron, on behalf of a £50,000-spending precision machining company that currently lacks the in-house capacity to undertake the work in-house. They are looking for the assistance of a Qimtek member who can adhere to the specified delivery date, meaning that this may be an ideal opportunity for those with immediate capacity to fill. The part is to be drilled, ground and bored to achieve the desired design, with elements of countersinking and chamfering also involved.
