STRUCTURAL BIW MACHINED COMPONENTS
Our group has been making structural aluminium components for over a decade. We specialise in niche volume parts in production, up to 10,000 sets per annum. We undertake prototype work for a number of very high volume leading BIW structural suppliers via our Vertex facility in Birmingham, proving out designs, part programmes and helping our Tier 1 suppliers get up to run rate more quickly and accurately.
We act as a Tier 1 and Tier 2 in this sector through long established partnerships with leading casting specialists. We are impartial as to the casting process used and therefore are able to advise and match customer requirements to the best casting process for the application, whether it be:
- Sand casting
- Gravity die
- Low pressure
- High pressure
Using our many years of machining experience we provide a “design for manufacture” and heat treatment knowledge-base to all our Tier 1 and Tier 2 partners in this sector.
What we machine:
- A, B & C pillars
- Sub frames
- … and much more!
Pretty much any prismatic aluminium structure can be machined on our range of high quality 3-, 4- & 5-axis machining centres at our Wellingborough and Birmingham facilities.
