Abstract

The manufacture of complex components is engrained in the United Kingdoms history, as technology progresses new methods of manufacture evolve leaving the previous methods obsolete. Industry demands that components are stronger, lighter and manufacture to higher tolerances and specifications using more exotic materials. Traditionally complex components would be manufactured using techniques such as fabrication, and machining. However, due to the capabilities of modern CNC machines the traditional methods are being removed and replaced by a CNC machining that can manufacture the component from a solid billet of material. The next step is to reduce costs, lead times and increase the scope of work and productivity. This can be achieved through the implementation of an integrated CAD/CAM system. This paper introduces the MKW group and focuses on MKW Engineering ltd as manufacturer of bespoke components to a range of engineering sectors. Explaining the benefits of introducing new technologies into a competitive market place.
