Our experienced team are experts thanks to their years of experience. We pride ourselves on rapid turnaround times and competitive prices. 
    • CNC Punching – Computer numerically controlled (CNC) is a process carried out by a CNC punch press. The machine is programmed to move the metal sheet across an x and y-axis to accurately position the sheet under the machine punching ram. We have been providing CNC punching services since 1967, we have truly specialised knowledge and workmanship to execute the highest quality metal punching.  
    • Laser Cutting & Profiling – Laser cutting and profiling is the technique of measuring and cutting flat metal sheets with a laser for the most precise accuracy to ensure surface quality levels meet tight tolerances. Our industry-leading machines cut large sheets of flat metal with unrivalled speed and accuracy.
    • CAD/CAM Design – CAD/CAM design is the process of designing and engineering sheet metal into products and structures using computers to accurately draw out the designs. We use state of the art CAD/CAM software to efficiently take customer sheet metal drawings through to production.
