HPC offer a very wide range of machining services. We aim to provide a complete turning service for any type of component up to around 10" diameter. We can also manage the entire component supply chain which might include machining, anodising or plating and stockholding for call off/kanban.
We have years of experience when it comes to slidinghead machining so whatever your requirements we can hopefully advise you. We have 10 Citizen slidinghead lathes that can operate around the clock. We do need reasonable volume for these machines (ideally 100+). We have recently purchased a LFV machine from Citizen (Low Frequency Vibration) which ensures we can chip any type of material and reduce production problems.
Fixed Head CNC Turning
We have our own fixed head turning facility consisting of a variety of Nakamuras and Doosan CNC Lathes. All the lathes have powered face and side milling tools and also angled milling and drilling capability/
We are very pleased with our latest purchase of a Nakamura WT-150 Twin spindle Twin Turret machine with Y-axis and barfeed.
CNC Milling capacity
We can offer milling capacity through our sister company Hemlock Engineering Ltd.
Most of the 3 axis milling machines are geared up with 4th axis units and/or multi vice workholding systems which enable us to clamp up to 8 components in a single operation. This means that cycle time is extended. This gives time for the operator to do other work within cycle - such as inspection - and also reduces the number of overall operations.
