Metaltech leads the way in CNC Sliding Head Machining capability
Metaltech Precision has a dedicated CNC sliding head machining facility at its factory in Somerset. The company specialises in producing high-precision machined components in an extensive selection of materials for a range of industry sectors, including medical, electronics, oil & gas, and rail.
In this blog we take a closer look at how customers can benefit from Metaltech Precision’s extensive sliding head machining capabilities.
Sliding head machinery allows a workpiece to move under Computer Numerical Control (CNC) whilst the tool remains stable. A bar is fed through the machine’s headstock and complex machining tasks including turning, milling, drilling and screw-cutting can all be achieved at speed to produce components with exceptionally close geometric tolerances.
Metaltech Precision has a track record of delivering cost-effective, high-quality components to time critical sectors with high ‘on time delivery’ ratings.
The company has expertise in a wide range of product sizes, including miniature and micro machining. Our sliding head machining capabilities allow us to manufacture products ranging from valve actuator parts for the oil and gas industry, through electronics components for many sectors, to inserts and fittings for the medical industry.
Metaltech Precision is able to offer single operation machining solutions which reduce cost, enhance quality and improve turnaround times for a wide range of parts. Our sliding head machining facilities are ideal for components:
