Fabrication

We also have a sister company at the same location - West of Scotland Fabrication. This company was formed to service the requirements of some of our customers with the fabrication, welding and general kit-out of containers. They also have a wealth of knowledge and experience in the manufacture of industrial gates, gantries and bespoke items.

Reverse Engineering - Any Machined Component

Our aim is to produce a 3D Model of a manufactured part when no drawings are available. This will allow the part to be remanufactured quickly and accurately, and at a competitive price.

Reverse Engineering Process:
1. 3D Model created and generated using CMM Measuring machine and other inspection facilities.
2. Image is dimensioned.
3. Material is analysed to determine type, hardness and any specific coatings.
4. Part can then be manufactured accurately.

Reverse Engineering Benfits:
1. Reduces lead times on components.
2. Obsolete parts can be manufactured.
3. Engineering drawings can be created for future requirements.

Our traditional engineering, as well as the latest CNC/Wire technology and measuring systems, are utilised.
