A&M is unusual in combining a comprehensive range of EDM and CNC machining services with a fully equipped traditional toolroom staffed by highly experienced machinists. By combining high precision conventional milling and turning with our other services we have the versatility and expertise to solve the most complex customer problems. Providing all these services in-house helps us to retain control, schedule work flexibly and meet the tightest deadlines.
Hand milling is ideal for certain applications and combined with hand turning enables us to make our own jigs for checking components and holding parts so that we can then then use the ‘lock and load’ capabilities of our CNC machines.
We carry out manual turning to machine high precision small parts down to a diameter of 500mm. As well as round parts, we can work on rectangular items and carry out eccentric turning. We have produced parts for a wide range of applications, from the Mars lander to high performance cars and drives for miniature engines. We work across a wide range of materials, from stainless steel, aluminium, titanium and Inconel to nylon.
Our laser welding equipment can create both spot welds, using a galvo head to deflect the beam, as in laser marking, and seam welds, using overlapping spots or with a continuous beam. We test the quality of the resulting seal to pressures from 3bar to 10bar, depending on the end requirements. A&M has also invested in a range of safety equipment enabling us to deliver the service at your site, which offering full flexibility.
