Tapping, Drilling & Assembly

A range of drills and insertion machines equipped with specialist jigs and fixtures for tapping, drilling and fixture inserting. We work with a range of inserts including self-clinching fasteners, rivets, bushes, sheetnuts, weld fasteners and cagenuts in support of our assembly services.

After initial presswork, machining and finishing processes we assemble components to customer specification using a number of methods including hand assembly, rivetting, pressed insertions, spot welding, spin rivetting and swaging. We use a variety of fastenings and inserts where required including press fit studs, self clinching fasteners, manganese/steel/copper rivets, hank bushes, rosan nuts, springs, rollers and washers.

Some assemblies are then subject to further operations such as precision grinding, milling, sizing, gauging and polishing before packing and despatch.
