Small Engineering Limited: Sub-Contract precision Multi Axis mill turning on Star CNC sliding head machines

Precision Engineering

Precision engineered components for the Micro-Electronics, Computer, Medical, Formula One, Audio Connectors, Valve Manufacture, Watchmaking, Model and Fibre Optics industries.

  • Precision engineering turned parts on a sub-contract basis.
  • Modern multi-axis CNC sliding head machines with sub-spindle and milling capability, with "lights out" production to reduce costs.
  • Microscopic parts (from less than 1mm diameter up to 20mm diameter maximum).
  • Wide range of stainless steel, ferrous, non-ferrous and plastic materials machined to order.
  • From small prototype batches up to high volume production runs.

All CNC Sliding Head Production Lathes with magazine bar feed & sub-spindle, Live cross-milling & drilling & tapping
JBS Autocompensation Guide Bush Systems have been fitted to the majority of our Star CNC Lathes. This clever device automatically compensates for variation in barstock diameter and allows us to use standard bar tolerances, even on aluminium and plastics, without the need for the bar to be precision ground prior to machining, saving time and expense
Prototype and high volume production runs.
