We are able to precision machine a variety of metals and hard plastics for your turned parts and milled components. We’ll be happy to advise you on the best materials to use at the design stage.
APT’s CNC workshop is equipped with Haas CNC mills, which are capable of precision machining high quality milled parts, at high capacity, for a quick turnaround. The Haas CNC machine centre are supported by a range of other machines, which take care of cleaning, polishing and quality control.
CNC milling capabilities
You need high quality milled parts, delivered quickly, so we’ve invested in the latest high capacity, multi-axis CNC machine centres. The technology has increased our production capacity by significantly reducing the chip to chip time.
Each machine has a bespoke pallet loading attachment, which loads the parts more efficiently for a quick turnaround. Each axis machine can be loaded with, and produce, up to 24 parts at once.
To give you the best possible price, we’re committed to keeping manufacturing costs down. Our Haas Super Speed VF-2 vertical machining centres are fitted with a high speed side tool changer. This optimises production times and reduces cycle times, which makes it more cost-effective.
Our Haas CNC machining centres have a 700mm x 400mm working area, operating with a 12,000rpm spindle. They can produce prismatic parts up to 700mm long.
Exceptional milling equipment
To offer you the very best service, we are continually improving our CNC workshop and upgrading our milling equipment. This has led to an investment in high capacity, multi-axis CNC machines.
Our Haas machining centres are equipped with the latest, ultra-fast multitool changers. This means you can have exceptional quality products, precision machined in the shortest possible time and a wide range of machining materials.
The machining centres are also equipped with the latest Renishaw probing systems. These allow the features of your milled parts to be checked and verified during the machining cycle. The result is a quick turnaround while maintaining the highest levels of quality control – to AS 9100 and ISO 9001 standards at all times.
Our vertical milling machines are a perfect complement to our turned parts operation.
“Nick at APT listened and understood exactly what we wanted to achieve with our valves. The quality of their brass turned parts has been consistently outstanding, I am so grateful for all their efforts.”
