The pandemic has been tough on the Aerospace industry, though it today wouldn't exist without outsourced, precision-engineered components. Unlike most land vehicles, almost no modern aircraft are designed, constructed, and tested entirely in-house. Due to the sheer number and diversity of disparate aeroplane, spacecraft, satellite, and helicopter components, aerospace manufacturing typically relies on a scattered production chain of outsourced commissions, to design and build each separate part to fit a grand overall plan.
All steel tube manufacturers have many considerations to make. It all begins with attention to detail.
Detail in this realm means balancing multiple contrasting variables including: the initial design requirements; the specification of the material; the quality of the machine; the cost of manufacture; and the required quality of the final product are the main areas.
Whether you're manufacturing cylinders for use in engines, hydraulic systems, or industrial machinery, it's crucial to make sure that they are reliable, function smoothly, and stand the test of time. That means ensuring that their surfaces are honed. In this article, we'll examine how honing is used in cylinder manufacturing and who you can turn to for help with the process.
Manufacturing products and shipping them to customers doesn’t just happen overnight by magic. Instead, the design and creation of products relies on a complex supply and resource management system that often extends beyond international borders, from the sourcing of raw materials to the eventual delivery of the completed product to the end user.
It's common for companies to use third party accountants, solicitors, and IT providers when they don't have teams of experts in-house. However, in recent years, manufacturing companies have realised that they can also benefit from working closely with precision engineering firms to handle parts of their manufacturing process. What advantages could your business gain from using Hone-All's subcontract machining services?
The 2020 pandemic has brought together some of the greatest minds from some of the most prestigious manufacturers in Britain to design, build, and ship vital medical equipment at very short notice.
Companies as diverse and skilled as Siemens, Rolls Royce, and BAE Systems have pooled their expertise to create large quantities of CPAP ventilators for use in hospitals and surgeries worldwide, in record time.
We are delighted to announce that we've won the 2020 UK Enterprise Award for excellence in Sub-Contracted Machining for Oil and Gas! We were extremely proud to be nominated by our customers for the Best Subcontractor Oil & Gas in the SME Energy & Power Awards at the end of last year and now we have been selected as the overall winner for Best Oil & Gas Subcontractor in the SME News Enterprise Awards 2020.
Although this is not to be formally announced until the end of August, we wanted to announce it as soon as possible to keep the positivity and good news flowing throughout our fabulous industry!
Single stroke honing uses a sequence of gradually larger sized abrading tools to complete a bore in a single cycle whilst using multiple tools. The process is conducted by a special-purpose CNC honing machine, through which the bore diameter and positioning are determined in advance.
Compatible materials for honing include stainless steel, cast iron, carbon steel, ceramics, polymer plastic, and glass.
So-called drill wander is a common and frustrating problem in many deep hole drilling operations.
So long as the drilling machine is set up correctly, the drill should – in theory – both enter and exit from the centre point. In practice, however, this rarely happens on deep holes; defined as any hole with a depth to diameter ratio greater than 10 to 1.
This is a company that was set up for UK manufacturers to come together, to innovate as allies and to build networks closer to home.
And we are loving their new term for our wonderful engineering and manufacturing heroes – collaborationeers!
How perfectly this describes us all after the events and amazing achievements we’ve witnessed across the widest range of businesses and industries in response to the Covid-19 crisis.
For the last few months, we have been enjoying and applauding this new ethos of collaboration over competition - and this fabulous concept gives us the platform to harness the recent enthusiasm and recognition for UK manufacturers and manufacturing across the UK.
