Finishing & Assembly

We offer our customers all of the more traditional finishing process including trimming, ball burnishing, vibratory finishing, shot blasting, linishing, grinding and polishing. We also offer extensive complementary services which include wet paint and powder coating, plating, hard chrome and colourings, chromation CR3 and impregnation if specified. The majority of these processes are carried out in house with the remainder being completed by our business partners externally.

Our latest development is in automated sawing and routing of components. Our customers obviously expect a high degree of consistency in traditional dressing operations like band sawing and hand linishing which is very relevant to gravity castings. We now utilise a Kuka 6 axis KR100 robot to saw and rout numerous components. The automated cell provides excellent consistency of cut and can be utilised to reduce cost by removing non value adding operations from the finishing processes.

Major improvements in health and safety also result by the reduction of manual sawing and repetitive activities.

Where possible finishing activities are integrated into our manufacturing cells, typically trimming and some machining operations are an integral part of the diecasting cell.
