Precision Technologies joins Midlands Aerospace Alliance

Posted 17 March 2017 · Add Comment

Precision Technologies is building upon its 25 years presence in the aerospace sector by becoming the latest member of the Midlands Aerospace Alliance (MAA).



Driven by its experience in the manufacture of highly accurate components used in the motorsport industry, the company continues to work with second tier suppliers to the aerospace industry to manufacture finish cut gears and splines and ground gears and splines, capable of meeting demanding quality requirements. The highly skilled workforce ensures that fast track manufacturing services are available to aerospace customers and, when appropriate, they can pre-book production capacity in future months using Precision Technologies' new fully integrated MRP capacity planning software.

Precision Technologies' in-house UKAS accredited laboratories are capable of measuring components dimensional tolerances of +- 1.0 Micron. In-process metrology is also used to ensure that every gear and spline is manufactured accurately and the correct allowance is made for the 'growing' of components during hardening processes.

The company have implemented a system where every employee is being cross-skilled to ensure maximum flexibility throughout the company. In addition, a new craft apprenticeship initiative allows young people to train up to degree level in Mechanical Engineering whilst learning practical aspects of manufacturing.

Precision Technologies provides small batch runs, prototypes and pre-production component proving. It also has the capability of working with aerospace engineers to review components against their ability to be manufactured using the most cost effective production routing.

Kevin Parkin, Managing director, said: “Having been running the business for just over a year I am amazed that this jewel of British engineering has been under-represented in the aerospace and defence sectors hitherto, so I see great growth potential utilising our highly skilled team.”
