APT’s CNC workshop is in operation 24/7, working around the clock. Our CNC turning and milling machines manufacture products of the highest quality and are constantly audited for maximum efficiency.
You may be surprised by the range of materials APT can precision machine for you. We create turned parts and milled components using a variety of metals, alloys and plastics. Our in-depth understanding of how these materials machine means we’re happy to advise on the best material for your project.
Our fixed and sliding head lathes use the latest high performance lubricants and coolants to ensure a smooth, efficient and highly productive process. This also allows us to machine a wide variety of materials and achieve better finishes.
Using this equipment, we were able to undertake a complex titanium machining project to create bespoke titanium components for one client.
APT uses Haas vertical axis machining centres, which generate less heat, vibration and noise than other CNC machining centres. This means we can mill in a wider range of materials, with better surface finishes and thermal stability.
Using this equipment, we undertook the aluminium machining required to produce intricate aluminium blocks for the pneumatics engineering sector.
Brass turned parts
We specialise in the design and manufacture of brass turned parts. Brass is an exceptionally versatile material with a high tensile strength. It’s also durable and weather resistant, which makes it suitable for a wide range of applications.
You can read more about the advantages of brass in our blog: Why is brass good for machining?
And you can see examples of our brass turned parts in the brass turned parts gallery.
