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 specialises in the precision engineering of turned parts for a wide range of sectors. We’ll take your turned components from initial concept to final design. We’ll then undertake the precision machining, heat treatments and surface finishing. Finally, your components will be assembled, packed and delivered to you in perfect condition.
CNC turning capabilities
Whatever you need, we can machine a variety of materials, including stainless steel, brass, plastics and titanium.
Our machines can turn parts from 0.5mm to 65mm in diameter from bar, and up to 300mm in diameter for billet work. This gives you plenty of scope for creating small, complex components and larger assemblies.
APT continually invests in the latest tooling equipment and CNC manufacturing methods, so our CNC workshop is set up for peak performance and productivity. This means you can rely on us for exceptional quality and a quick turnaround on your order.
Our CNC lathes use the latest high performance lubricant program. This means they’re always operating at maximum capacity. The CNC workshop is also equipped for lights-out manufacturing, which allows us to work on your project 24/7.
For your peace of mind, all our fixed head and sliding head lathes can be monitored remotely for guaranteed excellence.
Our CNC workshop features an extensive range of Star Micronics sliding head lathes, Miyano and Doosan lathes, which have a fixed head (see list below). These are all bar-fed with driven tooling and high pressure coolant.
The spindles run at up to 15,000 rpm, which lengthens the tool life and enhances the quality of your products’ surface finish. These CNC lathes are also fitted with sub spindles, which result in faster production and lower costs.
All CNC machines are covered by an ongoing tooling maintenance programme and are maintained by the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM).

“We have used APT Leicester for a number of years now, to produce a wide range of components that are shipped globally and we often receive positive comments upon the quality of the turned parts. This is down the great finish that the APT components always have, but maybe more importantly for myself apart from component quality, is that parts are always turned around and shipped both within the given time schedule and on budget.”
