Precision Machining

Precision Machining

Precision machining is what we do here at Thomas Brown Engineering.

We can work with you to identify your precision machining requirement and have a comprehensive precision engineering service in order to fully deliver on your requirement.

We have earned our reputation for quality & reliability as our expertise, facilities and capabilities means that we can deliver a comprehensive precision machining service.

We can manufacture parts in a comprehensive range of materials including stainless steel, aluminium, cast alloys, plastics and exotics.

Our component parts can be produced either on an individual order basis, as a scheduled delivery or as a Kan-Ban system. We can supply parts as assemblies, delivered direct to your production line thus eliminating your inspection and stocking costs.

We can run many of our CNC machines in a “lights out” capacity. The quality of our machine tools and investment in work holding means we may be able to run your parts when the machine is unmanned. This capability means we are likely to be very competitive, whilst still delivering the high quality that is expected by our customers. If you want to know more about our “lights out” capability, please get in touch. Click here to see a video example of our “lights out” machining capability.
