Hydraulic Flange Units

We have recently completed these hydraulic flange units, manufactured from mild steel the largest unit started out just short of 72KG, a hefty chunk of material but after we worked our magic the largest item now weighs in at just ..... Both these items were machined on one of our 3 axis machining centres without any 4th axis, during machining we used a series of tools including roughing cutters, finishing cutters, chamfer mills, spot drills, carbide drills and 1/4 BSP thread formers, we opted for thread formers over thread cutting to produce a longer lasting thread, threads created by forming are also stronger than cut threads.

If your company has a requirement for flanges please get in touch with us for a free no obligation quote to produce your parts.

Vauxhall Astra 2.0 VXR Engine Block Modification

We are currently working on a modification to strengthen the engine block fitted to the Vauxhall Astra VXR (240), most of you will have heard of the wedge's that are available but we are working on a full enclosure which will be fitted in the existing water jacket to offer a uniform support to the cylinder liner. The purpose of this modification is to help prevent deformation of the cylinder liner when increased boost pressures are use, this deformation will lead to premature cylinder cracking and head gasket failure.
