Precision CNC machining - Quality is in our blood!

Find me on:

Axis provide top notch precision CNC machining services with tolerances accurate to 2 microns. This cutting edge capability is only available because we have a passion for quality. 

But this quality stretches beyond our workshop and top of the range DMG 5 axis machining centres: it's in our blood!

Our passion for quality is in evidence throughout the entire project, right from the moment you speak to us. We're all engineers so you'll be comfortable discussing the ins and outs of your project. And, as engineers, we understand what is critical to a successful project.

This is why we work to model, so we can see the features of the components precisely, providing better accuracy and preventing errors - ensuring our clients receive components of the required quality with short lead and turnaround time.

Cheap will not do! Precision CNC machining requires the best quality materials

Quality starts with materials. Cheap materials compromise the completed component and so, when precision counts, cheap is unacceptable.

With over thirty years of experience, we source materials from only the best suppliers throughout the UK and Europe ensuring we get the best price for our clients without compromising quality. Of course, if required full traceability is in place. So it means you don't have to worry about this part of the project, we take care of it for you. As per ISO 9001:2008 we're deeply concerned with quality management and customer satisfaction.

But when materials fail, Axis pull through!

For example, a recent project involved the manufacture of front and rear wheels for a Motorsport client. A small project but one where the precision in precision machining was critical, as was the lead time!

Unfortunately, the first component produced needed to be scrapped during the roughing stage. Aluminium back end defects meant the part warped and cracked. Ouch! This regrettable and potentially serious issue could have been a disaster.

But, without fuss, we replaced the material and got on with the job of manufacturing the components. 

Having inspection ingrained in our processes, supported by our full time inspection manager, meant that we were able to fulfil the project to required CAD standards without the customer being affected. The job was completed and delivered on time as promised because we picked up errors early. 

How's that for a hassle-free engineering project!

When quality counts look for precision engineering in the name!

For Axis Precision Engineering Components Ltd. the clue is in the title, i.e. the words precision and engineering! It's so much more than:

As you can see, quality is as important to us as it is to you. But how, exactly, does that work from start to finish throughout a project?

Well, to get an idea of what partnering us looks like, we have a short case study ready for you to download in a couple of clicks. So please download the case study and read through it at your leisure to get a feel for how quality runs through our veins.
