Machining

    Modern Cutting Technology

    For a Full Range of Machining Requirements

    Machining facilities include EDM, CNC wire cutting, CNC grinding, honing, CNC milling, lapping and CNC turning.

    “We Machine the Hard Stuff”

    Fast, Flexible Turnaround to Meet Customer’s Exact Specifications

    Our technical team has amassed a wealth of skill, knowledge and know-how turning designers’ and engineers’ rigorous requirements into economically viable solutions. Our expert engineers select the optimum process to suit specific needs.

    Program-manage fully machined / engine ready components from barstock / castings / forgings to finished components for aerospace, automotive, power generation, oil & gas, food, and steel.

    Wall Colmonoy has an ongoing commitment to high quality manufacture and with its on-site laboratory and test facilities offers certification to national and internationally recognised standards. Each machined component goes through a reassuringly stringent inspection process before final delivery. We maintain the quality assurance of ISO 9001.

    Our new state of the art machining 23,500ft2 facility was officially opened in May 2012 by Wales’ First Minister, Rt. Hon Carwyn Jones A.M. Read the announcement here.


    PROOF MACHINING

    Components manufactured from centrifugal and sand castings are proof machined prior to precision finishing to drawing. Bushes and sleeves for power generation valves, galvanising steel sheet equipment and piston rings for marine engines are produced on these machines.


    PRECISION MACHINING

    Precisely machined components are finished to extremely exacting dimensions on the most modern CNC 4 & 5-axis machining centres. These machines are fully equipped with in-line measuring probes. This equipment permits finishing of complex components consistently and repeatedly to the most exacting tolerances.  Can hold tolerances of 0.010mm.


    GRINDING

    Components requiring grinding are finished on our state-of-the-art CNC Grinders, achieving extremely fine tolerances to better than 0.02mm (down to 0.005 microns) and high surface finish (surface finishes of 0.2 Ra). Components include parts for pumps with high processing pressures and which demand accurate metering of chemical products.


    HONING AND LAPPING

    Many components are specified to extremely low micron surface finishes for customers requiring extremely smooth, flat component surfaces. These are achieved using our state-of-the-art honing and lapping equipment.

    • Can be finished to tolerances of 0.06 Ra lapped surface finish
    • Honed to within 0.010mm
    • Tolerance with a surface finish of 0.2 Ra

    ELECTRO-DISCHARGE MACHINING (EDM) & WIRE CUTTING

    Machining permits complex profiles in wear-resistant materials to be produced cost-effectively and to high precision.

    Wall Colmonoy’s comprehensive array of wire cutting machines enable components from a few grams to many kilos to be produced to finished drawing.

    Applications include under-engine wear blocks for Formula 1 Cars and hot cropping knives used in automotive forging plants.
