Thompson Precision is the perfect partner for Research and Development departments who require difficult to produce CNC machined parts and demand the highest levels of service. If you have struggled to gets components and sub-assemblies produced on time and to the required quality, we would love the opportunity to demonstrate our service. We specialise in low volume and high precision machining and our fast turnaround service is well suited for machined prototypes from all industries.

We understand the pressure on R&D departments to provide low-volume prototype components quickly and to the highest quality. We pride ourselves at being able to provide complex, low volume parts on budget and on time. With over 20 CNC Machines, providing both 3 and 5 Axis machining capabilities, we strive to always keep a machine ready for your urgent project – perfect for those tight deadlines.

Also, and most importantly, we fully understand the research and development function within an organisation and always endeavour to support R&D departments with our experience gained over 80 years in the industry. Whilst science and engineering drive the research and development process, creativity and invention are not always a scientific process and have to be nurtured and encouraged to achieve the best results. We are well placed to offer support at all stages and to recognise and highlight the important factors that are relevant to the project.

Complex CNC machining for research and development engineers

Precision Ultem Parts - 5 Axis CNC Machining

Precision Ultem Parts – 5 Axis CNC Machining

Regularly CNC milling aluminium, stainless steel, titanium, engineering plastics and more, we keep stocks of most materials so we can get started on your urgent project with no delay.

Working with clients, we are often asked to provide different varieties of the same part with small differences, allowing teams to compare and contrast how the different parts perform.

We offer a one-stop machining service, allowing designers and R&D engineers to streamline their procurement – we can source material, machine the complex component and perform any additional processes you require including precision masking, conversion coatings, Hard and Sulphuric Anodising, Electroless Nickel plating, Gold Plating and more.

For more information on our work with Research and Development departments, take a look at our case studies, including the Prototype Land Rover Gearbox.

We are ready to help solve your engineering problem. Contact us today to find out if we can help your R&D project by calling 01277 365500 or email [email protected].
