What You Need To Know Before Requesting A Sub-Contract Quote

Posted by Andrea Wilson on May 21, 2024 9:41:00 AM

Requesting a quotation is the first step when you decide to outsource your precision manufacturing to Hone-All, or indeed any another provider. However, to be able to provide you with an accurate cost prediction for your project, your trusted supply partner will require the following information:

  • Whether you will be supplying the material or require us to source for you.
  • The material specification and / or any minimum yield or tensile strength requirements – and of course, any sourcing specifications i.e., EU sourced.
  • A technical drawing, or sketch with the required parameters and tolerances.
  • In the absence of a drawing, a written specification including all details such as required internal and external diameters, lengths, tolerances, concentricity, and surface finishes required.
  • Clarification of any blind bore forms if required.
  • Technical details of any other treatments and if applicable, any sealed layout or specified process route.
  • And finally, the quantity you need as this can impact the cost dramatically if a complex set up is required.

Without these parameters, creating an accurate costing becomes difficult.

Why Outsource Your Precision Engineering Needs?

When intricate or delicate components are required by a manufacturing process, the services of a precision machining specialist can be irreplaceable – saving you time and money on project delivery. By choosing a reliable partner to manufacture your key components, you benefit from:

  • Access to the latest cutting-edge CNC technology without having to invest in new machinery yourself.
  • Cost-effective materials sourced for a competitive price to keep your costs low.
  • Wide-ranging specialist skills and qualifications that your own staff don’t possess.
  • Effective methods to machine the most complex shapes and designs.
  • Improved repeatability on long runs, so every part is identical to the last.
