Doing our best to help the NHS
We would like to thank all our dedicated and skilled staff for the work that they are currently doing to make components for the newly developed oxygen monitor for CPAP system for the NHS, and the parts for the testing kits for the pharmaceutical industry to begin testing for COVID-19.
These are incredibly difficult times for everyone and it is rewarding to feel that here at Ultra Precision we are playing a small part in supporting our NHS.

Latest part from our Doosan
The latest part machined on our Doosan MX machine. A 7.5 inch diameter, 40 kilogram stainless steel 316 billet, turned and milled in one operation. With eight internal diameters tied up to +/-0.05mm, the part is transferred mid cycle automatically from main spindle to sub spindle within the cycle. As well as the four pcd holes, the machine has the capability to produce the cross hole which is thread milled.

New washing facility now in action!
Following our announcement of an investment programme in November the first arrival has been in use now for a couple of months. Our new component washing facility has proven to be a great success, hugely improving the quality of the parts we deliver in terms of cleanliness, whilst also reducing the process time to complete the cleaning operation. This in turn has helped with lead times and delivery. The machine is fully programmable for any cycle required, with a combination of flood wash, spray wash, rinse and dry. The water is filtered and skimmed automatically to keep the wash solution in the best condition possible and the dosage of cleaner is controlled and maintained automatically in cycle.
As well as a full rotating wash, more fragile items can be run on a static wash where the baskets stay still. A variety of baskets, dividers and clamps allow us to hold all parts securely.

Stainless Steel latest
Produced from stainless steel 316 on our Puma 1800 TT lathes, both parts feature double dove tailed 'O' ring grooves. The nature of the final use required the parts to have an excellent internal surface finish. The larger part started from a 5 inch diameter billet and was machined in one cycle.
