Capabilities

Continuous investment means we have a well equipped shop floor with machine centres and Inspection equipment to manufacture a broad range of quality parts to customer requirements. With CAD CAM capability as well as a trusted network of subcontract partners for processes such as heat treatment, plating etc we can offer a complete precision engineering service for low or high volume work.

In 2011 and 2012 we updated our measurement capability with the addition of a second CNC controlled CMM and the purchase of a Mitutoyo Formtracer and Roundtest equipment.  Salcey Precision can now also offer subcontract measurement services for complex and high tolerance machine parts.

For complex parts manufacture we have five Swiss made Mikron High Speed simultaneous 5 axis Machining Centres with capacity for 68 tools and palletisation for long runs and automated running. Together with our two driven CMM's and Nikon vision measurement system we can manufacture and measure the complex high precision parts that the Motorsport, Aerospace and Medical industries demand.

In late 2011 we invested in a STAR sliding head machine with FMB barfeed and Argotech PA-4 tool breakage monitoring system to extend capability.  We chose the SR-20R 111 machine that takes 20mm bar.  This has been a fantastic addition to the machine line-up and it runs 24/7 producing precision parts.

In 2012 and 2013 we invested in the larger diameter SR32J-N Sliding Head Machine and another SR20R 1V Sliding Head Machine, again with the FMB barfeed and same Argotech monitoring system to extend capability.

A steady increase in high tolerance machining work for Formula 1 involved us sending a great deal of grinding work to subcontract.  This led us to start looking at owning our own grinding machine. Studer are the market leaders in high quality grinding machines and in November 2014 we took delivery of our own - a S33 Studer machine.
