As well as our gearing cutting and grinding facilities we also provide CNC machining, both milling and turning as well as various other machine facilities. Allowing us to not only manufacture a variety of components but also complete the more specialised secondary processes in house.

CNC Machining

Gilbert Engineering aim to provide a complete precision machining service and are able to supply prototype and low to medium volume machined metal or plastic components. We recognise that more and more of our customers want to minimise the number of vendors they have to deal with / simplify their supply chain. With the variety of services Gilbert Engineering offer we believe we can be a one stop shop for your components.

Gilbert Engineering quotes accurate lead times and where necessary keeps the customer up to date throughout the process. Thanks to our comprehensive range of modern CNC machinery and years of experience acquired working with conventional machines; we offer high-quality precision-machined components. Our capabilities include CNC milling (3 and 5 Axis), CNC Turning, Large Precision Grinding, Boring Horizontal & Vertical, Slotting, Welding, etc.. See our capacity list.

Drawings are checked before we plan the job and any obvious issues will be raised and discussed with you. This hopefully will prevent costly re-works further down the line.

Gilbert Engineering offer additional further processing, as required, some of these are listed below:

  • Anodizing
  • Zinc Plating
  • Heat Treatment
  • Laser Cutting
  • Folding
  • Shot Blasting
  • Powder Coating
  • UT Testing
  • NDT Testing
  • Hard Chroming

Manual Machining

To complement our CNC milling and turning machines we also have manual machines which are ideal when an urgent repair is required. Simple repairs can be completed by the time a CNC manual machine is set up. Gilbert Engineering has manual lathes up to 3M long and we are well suited for most shaft repairs. Due to the variety of work undertaken here at Gilbert Engineering we utilised both a vertical and horizontal borers, these machines allow us to turn and mill very large and awkward items they can’t normally be done on a conventional mill or lathe.
