We have invested heavily into the latest CNC Milling machines and CAD/CAM software to enable us to provide a hugely comprehensive and capable Milling service.

Equipped with the latest tooling and software means we keep abreast of the latest milling technologies and methodologies.

This enables us to machine a very diverse range of materials including ‘hard to machine’ types such as Titanium, Nimonic, Inconel, Super Duplex etc.As well as 3-axis machines we have 3+2 machines and 4 axis machines with full C-axis.


  • Massive range of Milling machines and capacity
  • Large capacity Millers that can handle a 12T workpiece
  • C-Axis capability
  • Big envelopes to handle very large & long components up-to 8000mm long
  • All machines networked and supported by latest CAD/CAM

Horizontal Boring


Horizontal Boring is a key service we offer and enables us to machine features that you couldn’t normally machine on a conventional bed-mill.

Our largest Kia CNC has a full interpolating B-axis, allowing us to machine not only complex details but also positionally relative features with great accuracy.

Line Boring is a further key service we offer where parallelism and concentricity are important geometric considerations.
