Finishing and Grinding
Metal finishing is a specialist skill in itself. It is, therefore, unusual to find a finishing shop within a Tungsten Carbide manufacturing facility.
We are extremely keen to maintain control over the final quality of our products and to deliver them to you in as short a lead-time as possible. This is why we have invested in our own finishing facility and continue to develop it alongside our Carbide production facility.Project Management

EDM Wire - For producing complex geometries both internally and externally.
EDM Die-sinking - For blind holes and complex forms.
CNC surface grinding - This department contains a wide variety of machinery grinding large rings to small, highly accurate, measurement components.
Lapping and polishing machines - Capable of working to a flatness of 2 light-bands and dimensions of 5 microns.
Assembly - Using the latest assembly techniques, steel and Tungsten Carbide composites can be supplied complete or using customers free issue bodies.
This in-house capability means that we can supply components 'stores ready', in customers packaging if required, eliminating the need for any additional operations.
