CNC Machining

CNC Lathe Control Panel McDowall Engineering’s fully equipped machine shop has been setup to provide our customers with precision machined parts either on a one off basis or for high run production components. Our highly skilled operators use CNC lathes, conventional machine lathes, milling machines and our vertical boring machine to meet your requirements.

CNC Turning – CNC Machining Services

Our CNC turning services are perfect for the manufacture of components such as Bushes, Pulleys, Rods, Shafts, Rolls, Axles, Stub Axles, Trailer Axles, Bearing Housings, Conveyor Parts, Conveyor leg Pins, Custom Brake cylinder pistons, Air Fittings / Pneumatic Fittings, Couplings both threaded and plain, Bell Housings, Universal Adapters, Machining of Custom Mining Components, Small Valve Components, Studs / Custom Bolts, Threading both Internal threads and External threads, Custom Components, Gear Blanks, Spacers, Custom Fasteners.

We can machine components from a wide range of materials, some include:

  • Machining / Turning of Round, Square and Hex Bars.
  • Aluminium Rod - some of which include grades 6061, 2011.
  • Brass Rod and Brass Tube - some of which include grade 385.
  • Cast Iron and Cast Aluminium.
  • Carbon Hollow Bar - some of which include grades 750.
  • Black Mild Steel Bar and Mild Steel Tube / Pipe.
  • Bright Mild / Tool Steel / Precision Ground Bar - some of which include grades S1214, 1020, 1030, K340 , K110 (or D2), K1045 (1045), 4140 and Silver Steel.
  • Stainless Steel - some of which include grades 303, 304, 316 and 431.
  • Engineering Plastics / Plastic Rod - some of which include, White (natural) or Black Acetal (or Wearace), White (natural) or Black Nylon (or Wearlon), Ertalyte Tx (or PETP / PETP-GL), Oilamid (a Self Lubricating Plastic), Peek, Grey Pvc.
  • Polyurethane - some of which include grades / Duro 90D, 83A, 93A.
  • Burndy Metal and assorted other cast metal.
  • Heat Treated / Hardened Tool Steel - We regularly do Hard Turning of Tool Steels after the Heat Treatment process has taken place to ensure correct tolerances are held. (Various Heat treatment processes can cause the material to move/distort slightly thus affecting tolerances. Hard Turning / Hard Machining is a method that can overcome this problem).
