West Cumberland Engineering is a high quality fabrication company focussing on the manufacturing of quality welded fabrications, tanks and vessels for the nuclear reprocessing and petrochemical industries
What was required
West Cumberland was in need of a high QUALITY Sub Contract machine shop that could machine high quality products in small and medium batch sizes and sub-assemblies, with added experience working in Stainless Steels, Duplex, Titanium and other exotic materials. Adelaide, with its 3 Vertical Machining Centres equipped with 4th axis, and also two Bar Fed Colchester Lathes that will feed bar up to 62mm in Diameter, was able to meet the small and medium batch sized requirements of the customer. One Colchester is equipped with a C Axis function, which enables Adelaide to turn, drill and tap mill flats, squares, hexagons and keyways in one hit machining, thus reducing set up times and handling costs.
Adelaide added value
Adelaide now supplies a variety of machined parts and sub-assemblies that West Cumberland are not able to manufacture; thus these services provided by Adelaide adds value to West Cumberland’s business.
