Industrial Precision EngineeringThe backbone of manufacturing activity
Industrial Precision Engineering
Precision engineering forms the backbone of manufacturing activity. It forms an integral part of electrical, electronic, mechanical and optical engineering. From semiconductor chips, to the most advanced medical devices and the most sophisticated drill bits used in oil exploration, precision engineered products play a vital role in the development of the overall economy.
Materials and Services
Precision engineered products may be manufactured from either ferrous or non-ferrous metals or from a wide range of composite materials and plastics. The precision engineering industry is also instrumental in providing specialist engineering services for the maintenance and overhaul of plant and machinery used in a multitude of production processes.
Typical end-market applications for precision engineered products can be found in the aerospace, automotive, capital equipment, defence, electronics, materials handling, medical equipment, oil and gas, power generation, renewable energy and transportation industries.
