Think packaging is easy? Think again! There are multiple hurdles to navigate, and one of these is quality. At any stage of a project, quality matters. Sometimes it only matters slightly, and sometimes it matters a lot. A 0.001 mm difference in a deep hole volume might mean nothing on a pushbike but might result in catastrophe for a plane.

What’s in a price? It’s a simple question, and one that often has unexpectedly complicated answers. This is because some things – such as skill, experience, and technical knowledge – are difficult to quantify. Issues such as identifying additional processes are also important. If you’re interested in learning about honest CNC machining quotes, here are some pointers to help navigate the often murky waters of engineering pricing.

Manufacturers in all sectors are under intense pressure to deliver quick results on tight budgets. Your customers expect a fast turnaround and a competitive rate, which you have to achieve with the minimum resources available. It is natural, therefore, to look for areas where economies can be made on the manufacturing process. Industrial rollers are a common target for these cost saving exercises, with the risk that low price is prioritised over quality.

As a business, we will naturally assume there is a requirement of concentricity or equal wall thickness unless we are told otherwise, for example, if the application is simply for fluid flow
You could argue that we are over-engineering the machining and this is at the expense of our competitiveness within the industry. However, we believe in giving the customer the very best that can be achieved and ensuring that they do not encounter any unexpected issues further down the production process.
At Hone-All we are committed to the belief that simpler is better when it comes to supply chains. Most people know Hone All for our practical services in advanced honing, boring, and CNC machining. However, we’re also dedicated to trouble shooting, project management, and ironing out supply chain creases.
As a company dedicated to precision engineering, Hone-All are often asked about our quality guarantees and accreditations.

Drill wander is a major feature of all deep hole drilling and deep hole boring machinery and service provision. This is where the drilled hole will start perfectly on centre and although the bore will be completely straight, the exit will be off-centre by an amount relative to the length of the hole drilled.
All workshops are potentially dangerous places. This means that health and safety is something that everyone at Hone-All takes very seriously.
Specialist services such as deep hole boring, deep hole drilling and honing are a black art to some and still slightly grey for others.
Modern apprenticeships do not cover such skill sets and even the traditional apprenticeships from decades ago only ever covered honing or grinding in a minimal format.
