Precision Ground Stainless Steel

Processes

We are much more than a stockholder with extensive processing capabilities in-house, including cutting, straightening, precision grinding, polishing and packaging. We have a dedicated team of skilled grinding operatives and setters. With our annually renewed ISO 9001 Quality Management System Accreditation, you are assured of quality processes.

Cutting

We can cut to length sawn blanks with a diameter anywhere between 10mm & 750mm. Smallest length possible 7mm. With 8 band saws, we are happy to handle both a 1 off “special” to multiple cuts and volume demand in any stainless grade. We are also happy to work with your own free issue stock.

Straightening

We have a straightening press, able to handle bespoke tolerances, operating quickly, precisely and reliably.

Precision Grinding

We offer precision grinding of long bar with diameters from 2mm right up to 254mm, in lengths 2m to 12m. We can supply to a tolerance 0.0005" and a surface finish of Ra 35 or better. We have 5 centreless grinding machines, so can handle volume orders to tight bespoke tolerances and tight lead times. To ensure consistent surface finish we have invested in new and improved surface roughness measurement equipment. The results are then saved electronically to allow reporting within the certification package to the customer.

Polishing

A polishing line enables us to provide an even finer finish than the grinding process.

Turning & Boring

A longstanding relationship with a reliable external supplier enables us to provide turning and boring processes when required. We will however soon have our own machines that will enable us to do this in-house.

Packaging

We wrap our finished products in Netlon sleeve, a thermoplastic mesh, to ensure maximum protection. If necessary we will also box, for added protection.

Quality

ISO 9001 We have implemented a continuous improvement programme company-wide and are assessed annually for our ISO 9001 Quality Management System Accreditation, which looks ensures are policies, procedures and processes are up to standard, to ensure you receive the right product first time, on time.

3rd party testing and inspection In addition, we can offer third party testing and inspection with your required testing house.

Stockholding

We also hold a vast range of stock, with bar in lengths up to 10m, dependant on size / grade.
