Quality Assurance
  • Our organization is fully accredited to ISO 9001 by a Ukas Acreddited body (NQA).

  • We have many years of experience in the supply of components to safety critical industries such as train braking systems, medical, aerospace and fire protection industries. We simply cannot allow poor quality or incorrect components to reach the client. 

  • All orders are subjected to in-process and final inspection.
    This inspection is "tailored" to the complexity/accuracy of the individual component and the quality requirements of the client.


  • Our inspection equipment is among the most up-to-date available today. For example, we utilise a Keyence IM-8030 video Inspection System with in-built side and height probe, enabling us to perform fully automated and much higher detailed inspection than possible using manual methods alone. This equipment is guaranteed to +/- 2micron accuracy and is so simple to use that the machinists themselves can use it to regularly check manufactured components straight from the production line.

  • Cleaning and packaging is of the highest standards and for many customers we supply components in "tailor made" packaging, to suit both the component and the customer's goods receiving / production systems.

  • Our Production Control software is of high standard and fully integrated, meaning information is easily accessable to all departments - see below.

Order Processing and Production Control
  • From incoming enquiry to final despatch, all products are tracked, controlled and documented using our own in house ERP system. Our "Route Manager" production control system has taken many years to develop and now has a fully integrated electronic T-card system to track every process.

  • A Control Plan/Operation Process is produced as standard for every component we manufacture. Each operation is progressed as the previous one is completed, ensuring all operations are completed fully and in the correct order. This may include purchasing of the material, the various machining operations followed by anodising or heat treatment, cleaning and packing etc with detailed inspection requirements also added where neccessary.

  • All levels of traceability and documentation (C of C's, Raw Material traceability/Mill Certs, Inspection records etc.) can be offered.

  • Original enquiry information can be accepted in many forms including .pdf, .igs, .dxf, .par and SOLIDWORKS(*.SLDPRT).
