Precision Component Production
One of the areas C&T Engineering Ltd specialise in is the mass production of small, predominantly aluminium components utilised across various industries.
Over the years we have designed and developed many ways to enhance the production of this type of item.
For more details or a quotation please contact Paul Eddiford.
Sawing and cutting facilities include:
2no FOM automatic cut-off saws for the precise, volume cutting of extruded aluminium components from as small as 5mm up to 500mm in length, whilst maintaining a cutting tolerance of +/-0.1mm.
1no FOM up cutting saw for the precise cutting of all larger components either square ended or mitred.
1no double headed mitre saw for cutting aluminium or plastic extrusion with ends that are mitred, square or a combination of both. Capable of lengths from 150mm to 3m.
1no Haberle cut off saw for accurate cutting of both mild and stainless steel sections up to 160x80mm and solids up to 60mm diameter.
Component Production – Drilling, Countersinking and Tapping:
Within our production area we have dedicated drilling, countersinking and tapping stations which aid the manufacture of aluminium components. These areas utilise our in-house toolroom by using internally designed and manufactured fixtures.
Component Production – Punching:
We have a series of presses that range from 6 – 25 ton which accommodate presstools manufactured in-house.
Component Production – Machining and Routing:
Smaller components can be machined utilising multi fixtures in our Hurco VM10i 3 axis mill, whilst larger components such as extrusions can be accommodated in one of our XYZ bed mills or Mecal Kosmos 305, a 3+1 axis router capable of machining lengths up to 5.5m long.
Larger aluminium components are deburred with a Razzamat deburrer whilst smaller components are tumbled to remove burrs.
Packing, Kit Assembly and Dispatch:
Once completed the components can be packed or assembled into kits with accessories supplied either by yourselves or sourced by C&T Engineering, to your requirements, or dispatched in bulk.
