Aluminium fabrication techniques we offer

Cutting

Depending on the shape or form of your aluminium, using our in-house CNC or automatic saws we can cut or mitre a single piece to large multiples of almost any extrusion to match even the tightest of tolerances - packed and shipped to meet your requirement.

Drilling and slotting

We can accommodate a wide range of size and shape requirements with our in-house aluminium drilling and CNC equipment. We’re able to produce quality aluminium pieces to meet your specifications. With well-developed expertise and skill in precise, high-speed machining, you can count on us for a quality final product.

Countersinking and tapping

In addition to our drilling and slotting services and using the very latest in CNC technology, we can offer countersinking and tapping services to provide holes to meet the frequency and accuracy that suit the most exacting screw size requirement.

Pressings

If the section you require cannot be extruded successfully or economically, we have years of experience in folding and forming our own sheet stock to create that unusual size or shape. This is a really cost-effective way of achieving a bespoke solution.
