Tooling

All our bend tools, jigs and fixtures for special machining, welding and inspection are designed using our in-house CAD/CAM suite. They are then developed, assembled and tested in-house. This facility is invaluable for ensuring practical and cost-effective solutions for production needs.

In-House Tooling & Fixtures

  • Bend tooling (for rolled, rotary and stretch formed parts)
  • Machining fixtures (for 3 & 5 axis CNC Machining of casting or extruded aluminium, steel & stainless steel)
  • Full form checking fixtures out of aluminium, model board and other materials
  • Work holding Faro CMM inspection fixtures for the checking parts off to CAD data

Our tooling ensures that all parts and assemblies are sent out to the highest accuracy and quality which continually maintains our ‘zero-defect’ philosophy and in turn, complete customer satisfaction.

Machine simulation software is used to prove out CAD/CAM CNC 5 axis machining programs for development of machining strategies and to prevent machine crashes; maintaining Midland Alloy’s 5 axis Machining Centres is paramount to ensure good quality manufacture of parts.
