Exotic material manufacturing
For a prompt and accurate proposal, we would ideally like to have the following details:
- Raw material specification
- Quantity required
- Any surface preparation / painting specifications
- When the goods are required on site
- Annual usage (allows us to consider allocation of set-up costs if applicable)
There are options available when looking at the supply of replacement parts. Through our network, we may be able to provide replacement parts without the need to create drawings. Alternatively, you can send us an new or old part and we can use 3D scanning and coordinate measuring machines (CMM) to produce a drawing and model. The latter method allows us to consider additional improvements, such as raw material changes and surface engineering. We can also arrange onsite measurement of parts in your store which means you are not without critical stock.
In cases where drawings are available and raw materials are common, we would suggest allowing 3-4 weeks depending on the complexity of the items. Where forgings or castings are required, typical delivery would be 12-14 weeks (additional where patterns are required). As the quantity of parts will impact delivery, we can part-ship finished products to ensure critical stock levels can be maintained. Your unique requirements will direct us to the most appropriate raw material suppliers and manufacturers.
