Hone All Director To Participate At Women In Manufacturing Conference

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Apr 4, 2018 12:32:18 PM

 

The manufacturing sector in the UK isn’t known for its abundance of female employees. Look around a typical manufacturing business and the clear majority of workers from the ground floor to the boardroom are likely to be men. This is especially the case among company directors. Among the largest FTSE100 manufacturers, according to The Manufacturer magazine, only 23% of senior managers are women, while the number of women as a proportion of employees in the manufacturing sector overall – including small businesses – is even lower, at a paltry 15%.

Brief Guide To Trepanning

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Apr 3, 2018 3:47:47 PM

Trepanning is basically deep hole boring with a difference in that it leaves a core. It is an efficient method for drilling deep large deep holes that is more cost-effective than deep hole boring.

The most common use for trepanning is cutting a core out of a larger solid leaving two pieces. The removed material is not reduced to swarf as with drilling but remains a solid billet. The most common example is a solid billet that is left with a hole bored through from end to end and a second smaller round bar that is excised by cutting around it. It can be intended as a roughing operation, destined to be machined further or honed to a finer finish. Alternatively, trepanning alone is sometimes adequate for the job in hand. In fact, people often ask for trepanning when all they want is a deep hole or process bore.

A Perfectly Formed Bottom – Does Your Bore Really Need A Flat Bottom?

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Mar 6, 2018 11:21:00 AM

Producing blind bores into precision machined components, and responsibly quoting for them, should always result in more questions for the customer. As much as time is short during our busy working days, and these queries often result in a little lost time, it’s always worth investigating at the design stage whether the form required suits the process needed to produce it or will require a non-standard tool.

As I am writing this I’m busy taking stock of all the news and opportunities that came out of the EEF National Manufacturing Conference & Dinner, held on Tuesday 20th February. It was really good to catch up with some of our existing customers and suppliers and to discuss a few new projects!

If we didn’t get to see you or you couldn’t make it this year I’m sorry we missed you. This week’s conference was a lively event and sold out quickly with a waiting list for tickets – so the EEF conference is definitely one to put in your diary for 2019. The website is already taking preregistrations so subscribers can be informed of when tickets go on sale.

What Is Gundrilling & Why You Need It!

Posted by Andrea Rodney on Feb 9, 2018 1:54:22 PM

The process of gundrilling was initially developed to create uniform sized holes in artillery pieces and rifles. Techniques and technologies were set in place to give repeatable, highly accurate results on mass armament production lines, from the late 19th century onwards. Gundrilling is still used in the defence industry, but has far wider applications too.
