Machining

One-off precision machined components and assemblies

Supported by its engineering and toolroom departments, Brandauer utilise its soft and hard machining areas, alongside its unique Wire EDM service to produce one-off precision machined parts, jigs, fixtures and press and mould tool spares for its customers.

Brandauer’s one-off bespoke machining capability draws from its proven approach to precision press tooling solutions; producing complex progression tools that are capable of manufacturing millions of components every day. Within its Wire EDM cell, Brandauer can machine one-off tool parts with wires of diameters greater than 0.1 mm with an component accuracy of +/- 1 micron.

Hard machining, quick-turn plate manufacture and EDM hole burning are requirements met through the tool room’s integrated machining departments with micron accurate surface grinding capabilities up to a length of 1m and CNC Milling up to 1m2. Brandauer can further accommodate low volume CNC turning requirements to exact specifications.

Precision is again crucial and Brandauer employ dedicated machinists and grinders with the knowledge and skills necessary to produce repeatable, one-off machined assemblies, tool fixtures and associated machined parts. Consistently working to micron tolerances across a range of machining techniques, Brandauer’s low volume and one-off machining capability is industry-unique.
