Investing in the best machinery and cutting edge technology makes no difference to your production flow without an experienced team to make it all work. With 30 years of experience, Andy Stone, Production Manager at APT Leicester, knows just how important it is to bring all three together.
When it comes to exceptional engineering, working as a team is everything. When APT Leicester were approached by a major player in the security industry to improve on their existing components, the team pooled their knowledge and resources - with astonishing results.
Precision engineering has transformed the manufacturing industry, allowing us to design and create complex parts with exceptional accuracy. In this article, we look at the role of precision in engineering and what it really means. We also explore the advantages of being precise and why it makes such a difference for our customers.
Sometimes customers come to us with a part they want us to replicate. They don’t have the detailed drawings or spec we normally require, but they do have the existing component. In these cases we may be able to use reverse engineering to accurately recreate the part.
APT are to help more customers than ever before with the help of new, state-of-the-art fixed head lathes that have allowed APT to move up a bar stock. For the first time ever, we can offer precision turned parts of up to 65mm in diameter, as well as 300mm billet work.
