Precision Turned Parts & Components

APT specialises in the engineering of precision turned parts for a wide range of sectors. We’ll take your components from initial drawing to final design. We’ll then undertake the precision machining, heat treatments and surface finishing. Finally, your precision turned components will be assembled, packed and delivered to you in perfect condition.

  • Stainless steel turned parts with oiling finish
  • Plastic turned part in Delrin with barrel polishing finish
  • Mild steel turned part component with clear zinc passivated finish
  • Aluminium CNC precision turning with shot blasting and anodised finish
  • Small brass turned parts solvent cleaned

CNC turning capabilities

Whatever you need, we can machine a wide array of materials, encompassing stainless steel, brass, plastics and titanium.

Our machines can turn parts from 0.5mm to 65mm in diameter from bar, nd we can handle billet work up to 300mm in diameter. This versatility gives us plenty of scope for creating small, intricate components and larger, complex assemblies.

Precision turned parts quick turnaround

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 precision turned parts quality and a quick precision machining service 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.

Precision milling service

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 precision turned parts surface finish. These CNC lathes are also fitted with sub spindles, which result in faster production or precision turned components and lower costs.

All CNC machines are covered by an ongoing tooling maintenance programme and are maintained by the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM).
