Production

At Whiteley Brooks Engineering, our expert production engineers are able to fulfil our customer’s demands with precision and efficiency. By keeping our skills and machines up to date, we can be sure that these demands are met with the very latest in technology.

Drawing on this experience, we can, when required, work with our customers in the early stages of design concerning the choice of materials and feasibility of machining methods etc

We are familiar with most materials including steels, titanium, aluminium alloys, polymers and carbon fibres. We also have considerable experience in the finish machining of Additive Manufactured Parts (Three Dimensional Printing) and have worked with several companies working in this area. Two, Three, Four and Five Axis machining can be undertaken utilising our CAD-CAM systems and all of our machine tools are linked via our DNC 500 link to our server. This means that Part Programs can be both uploaded and downloaded from the machine tool.

Services supplied by Whiteley Brooks Engineering include:

  • Two and three axis CNC turning
  • Universal and cylindrical grinding
  • Three, Four and Five Axis CNC milling
  • Centre lathe turning
  • Surface grinding
  • Milling and drilling

Our facilities at Whiteley Brooks have recently expanded to include a third factory unit. This increases our capacity, allowing us to take on new projects. As part of our manufacturing processes, we can handle Wiring, E.D.M Spark Erosion and subsequent Plating’s and Heat Treatments.
