Contract Solutions offers industry-leading CNC Milling services, producing high quality components for use in demanding applications including aerospace, defence and motorsport. We have ten top specification Matsuura CNC machine centre’s capable of CNC milling, featuring high speed spindles, high pressure coolant feeds, tool monitoring systems and Renishaw probing capabilities. With our max work space size 500mm in dia supported by full 5 axis options, we are able to produce small or large complex components to the tightest of tolerances.
Our highly experienced team of engineers deliver the right results first time by using the most up-to-date CNC milling machinery possible and utilising state of the art manufacturing planning. This results in 100% control of operations and scheduling, 100% traceability and 100% of components finished to the highest standards.
5 AXIS MILLINGWith heavy investment in 5 axis machining we now operate ten Matsuura 5 axis machining centres. 5 axis machining allows the capability to make complex shapes and components in a single process increasing process reliability, accuracy and quality, along with decreasing the set up time and multiple operations.
CNC TURNINGFIXED HEAD SINGLE SPINDLE, FIXED HEAD TWIN SPINDLE & SLIDING HEAD LATHES – ALL WITH DRIVEN TOOLING & Y AXIS CAPABILITY
The turning facility has recently been introduced and all of the machines are new. The machines offer all turned component features to include across axis milling and drilling operations. This ensures integrity of geometric features along with high quality and cost effective components.
The size envelope is 1mm – 200mm diameter x 700mm long and the quantities reflect the milling capability.
PRODUCTION ENGINEERINGThe company has invested in the highest level of engineering software available along with highly skilled and experienced Production Engineers/CNC Programmers. This level of investment in engineers linked to heavy capital investment allows the company to operate in the most challenging of component production.
Customers can also benefit from this ability providing assistance at the design process enabling the understanding of what is possible and what is cost effective or not.
In house finishing is an integral part of our ability to successfully operate in the precision component/assembly market.
Machine deburring is always employed but not always possible to successfully reach all of the features particularly on small precision components. This is where human intervention plays a vital role. CSS employ 6 highly trained personnel to carry out this function mostly working under microscopes and using precision hand tools to complete the operation. This process is applied to 100% of the components manufactured.
The company is also able to carry out bead blasting and has invested in its own surface coating facility. This was driven by the high level of damaged components received back from Sub Contractors. This facility is purely for Contract Solutions own use, including Alocrom 1000, 1200 and SurTec 650, which has added to the efficiency of the operation and the total quality control ambition.
