Our workshop includes a range of advanced machine tools and additive manufacturing facilities. Machines have been carefully selected to enable prototype equipment production, giving companies access to equipment which can produce parts as delicate as the workings of a watch or as geometrically complex as a bespoke replacement knee joint.

We handle high-performance milling and grinding of ceramics, superalloys and other medical and aerospace grade materials, as well as 3D printing in a range of materials.
