Conical nozzles one of our latest showpieces!
We recently produced these two similar nozzle end pieces from stainless steel 316. The parts are 45mm diameter with a tapered full length bore from 38mm diameter down to a 20mm diameter. The environment these parts go into meant that the bore finish had to be a high grade finish of 0.4um.
Although we have machines with the capability to make them complete, as they were low quantities we opted to use other technology to produce them. Therefore after turning them on one of our CNC lathes, the parts were transferred to one of our CNC mills. These machines are fitted with infrared probes. We could therefore check each part 'in cycle' using the probes to ensure the three lugs being milled were perfectly positioned and central.

One of latest parts from our Citizen L32 LFV. A cleaning pin made from Stainless Steel 316. The smallest part is 0.8mm diameter x 18mm long. The part was balanced turned with the LFV running in order to process in one pass.
From our Doosan MX we have the following large component. The 6.25 inch dia billet is 145mm long and was processed in one hit, including the cross hole details and engraving (not pictured). The component featured 10 different internal diameters and grooves tied up to +/-0.015mm.

Engineering education at its best
The University of Wolverhampton's racing team has been for the last few years attracting budding engineers by providing them with a fantastic opportunity to put their theoretical studies into practice by completing in Formula 3 racing. In conjunction with sponsorship from some innovative tooling companies, they have been able to make adjustments and advances that ensures that their racing cars perform at their best.
This valuable insight into industry and the need to make performance improvements is resulting in some top graduate engineers.

CNC Machining – Tight tolerances on a twin spindle
One of the latest parts from out twin spindle, twin turret lathes.
Manufactured from a 3.5 inch aluminium billet in one cycle. Holes in the back are tied up positionally to the bore in the front by 0.015mm.
