Astec manufactures products with diameters ranging from 0.2mm to a maximum of 32mm made from diverse and exotic materials including hermetic alloys, thermocouple alloys, copper alloys, nickel alloys, stainless steel and high chrome content steels. Our state-of-the-art sliding head machines, up to nineaxes, are amongst the most advanced in the UK and deliver accuracy to five microns (0.005 mm). All production CNC lathes are equipped with automatic fire suppression systems, air filtration systems and are mated with fully automatic, CNC bar loaders.
Our modern machines use Fanuc controllers, which are capable of programming and setting each machine, providing flexibility and efficiency in production. We also boast parts conveyors, parts separators, and custom ejection systems which prevent physical damage to parts during ejection from machines. Our environmentally friendly ultrasonic cleaning machines, which incorporate a low boiling point chemical, remove oil and debris and supply a part ready for secondary operations or dispatch – contributing to our exacting OTIF standards. Shop floor data collection allows production to be constantly monitored and improved when required.
Secondary operations can include zone (or partial) annealing, inert gas treatments, plating, anodising, polishing, assembly work and colour coding. Parts are packaged in a variety of methods to prevent physical damage during transit. All products dispatched are released against the company’s ISO-9001 approval (which includes full traceability to raw material), and Astec is in the final stages of gaining AS9100 approval. Our industry-leading test and inspection facility ensures that you will receive your order exactly to your specification on time, every time.
