Metal Fabrication

Delivering die-cast or stamped metal components to meet your needs. Whether your devices are used in harsh environments or have a complex set of high-precision interlocking components, we have the experience and the capabilities needed to deliver on your expectations

Die-cast metal fabrication

Metal components produced by forcing molten metal into a mould under high pressure.

Stamped metal fabrication

Metal stamping is a manufacturing process used to convert flat metal sheets into specific shapes. It is a complex process that can include a number of metal forming techniques — blanking, punching, bending and piercing, to name a few.

Maximum value through working together

When conversations start at an early stage, our decades of experience tell us the project receives technical and commercial benefits.  Early conversations about timelines, critical features and environmental challenges (amongst others) give us the information to support your milestones and keep your project on track.

Design for Manufacture and rapid prototyping are both available to prove your concept prior to tooling commitment. Identifying issues at this stage minimises the need for modifications and reduces delays.

Matching the production method to the component

Understanding your product, technical requirements and commercial expectations allows us to select the right method of manufacture and finish. Low volume or high precision components can be achieved through CNC machining, whilst higher volume projects can enjoy manufacturing efficiencies from die casting. We have options with gravity casting as well as low/high pressure die casting depending on the needs of your device, as well as a range of post-cast processes including porosity treatment, painting and plating.

For stamped components, we offer either in-line or progressive tooling solutions to optimise your investment. Post-processing including drilling, tapping and welding are available with either manufacturing process, as well as finishing options such as anodising, powder coating and silk screen printing.

Availability wherever they are needed

We support your metal fabrication project from concept to delivery to ensure your metal components are in the right place at the right time, no matter where in the world your production facilities are. With warehousing in the UK and Hong Kong, we can implement supply arrangements  that cut out unnecessary transport, minimise lead times and ensure cost-effective supply.
