Hemlock offer a very wide range of machining services. We aim to provide a complete machining service for any type of component and specialise is project managing the entire component supply chain which might include machining, anodising or plating and stockholding for call off/kanban.
Most of our 3 axis milling machines are geared up with 4th axis units and/or multi vice workholding systems which enable us to clamp up to 8 components in a single operation. This means that cycle time is extended. This gives time for the operator to do other work within cycle - such as inspection - and also reduces the number of overall operations.
We currently have three 5 -axis milling machines. If the component has form machining or is extremely complex then ideally we would want you to issue a solid model to us so. If required we can create this model ourselves from drawings or components. These machines can do high speed surfacing work or machine complex multi-axis operations that guarantee the relative geometry of all features.
We can offer a full range of CNC Turning capacity through our sister company HPC Services Ltd. They have invested millions into the latest muti-axis CNC Lathes and slidinghead lathes. HPC operate a very similar quality system to Hemlock and are also ISO9002 approved.
