Our Precision Engineering Services
We’ve got a talented team and top-quality equipment at our fingertips. The below list summarises our capabilities, but if you have a job that needs doing and you’re not sure if we can help, please get in touch!
CNC Milling and Turning
We offer an extensive range of CNC milling and turning capabilities. We provide quality CNC machined and turned parts in a range of component sizes from 1mm to 150mm. Over the years we have gained a wealth of knowledge in CNC milling, turning and multi-axis CNC machining using a wide range of materials.
We’re experts in CNC milling and turning, so whether it’s complex and highly intricate parts, like multi-operation close tolerance parts, or simple items, like nuts and washers, we have the capabilities and expertise to provide an extremely high-quality service from start to finish.
Multi Axis and Sliding Head
We have a range of multi-axis fixed and sliding head machines to complement our range of standard CNC lathes and mills.
This highly sophisticated equipment allows us to carry out one hit machining of complex precision components and parts.
We’re experts in sophisticated, computer-controlled machinery. But there are times when the most effective method is to use manual machining. We can offer a wide range of manual machining services.
We train all our apprentices on manual machining, as we believe it’s an important skill for understanding the fundamentals of producing components and machining.
Assembly and Kitting
We also offer an assembly service. We can manufacture the component parts and then assemble them into your final product.
This could either be the full product, or a sub-assembly that you then incorporate into a larger assembly later. We can work with you to deliver and assemble the components you need.
Kitting is a process in which we manufacture a range of parts and then bundle them together into a kit that you can then use to make the products. They are a variety of benefits to this, from reducing warehousing requirements in terms of storing individual components, making your supply chain easier to manager and more efficient, to simply making manufacturing quicker and easier.
We can provide these kits with our manufactured components, and also with other required items that we purchase, such as bearings or seals.
Standard and Exotic Materials
We have experience and expertise working with a huge range of materials. We utilise the standard set of steels, aluminium, stainless, brass and plastic, and have produced huge numbers of components in these materials.
We’re also experienced with exotic materials like titanium, super duplex and nickel alloys. So, no matter the requirements of your project – AKP can machine high quality, perfectly engineered components.
To reduce the strain on your own warehousing, we can offer a stockholding service, where we manufacture your components in large batches and then hold them in our warehouse for you to order in. This lets you keep your own inventories low while still having access to a supply of components with fast lead times.
We can tailor our stock holding agreement to your exact needs. Contact us to find out more.
We have partnered with a number of other businesses, to allow us to offer the following list of high-quality additional services:
- Plating and surface finish treatments
- Heat treatments
- Wire erosion
- Painting and coating
- Non-Destructive Testing.
