NTG precision-engineering services
Using the latest 5-axis CNC machining equipment and techniques, NTG’s team engineer precision components for high-stress environments and complex technical challenges.
Surface and cylindrical grinding – state-of-the-art CNC and manual
For projects with the tightest of tolerances and a precise surface finish. Up to 1.6 metres in length and 350 mm diameter, internal, external, out of round and thread grinding.
NTG’s CNC milling processes quickly produce prototypes and precision-engineer final parts.
Having invested strongly in their CNC precision-turning section, NTG can complete traditional 2-axis CNC turning. Their twin turret, twin spindle machining with live tooling is used for complex parts.
EDM wire and spark erosion
EDM allows precise machining of the hardest components and complex geometries. NTG’s team of experts work with clients to create the most precise components.
Conventional milling and turning
Complementing their CNC machining services, NTG’s conventional milling and turning sections provide the perfect flexibility for a quick and simple solution.
To achieve the highest standards of accuracy and precision, all NTG’s finely engineered components pass through a quality process using a coordinate measuring machine (CMM). This ensures clients receive a product that precisely matches their specification and requirements.
Processing and finishing
Complementing their precision machining, NTG provide a full range of post-processing and finishing services, including welding, surface treatments, heat treatment and material testing. These ensure the optimal performance of components suitable for all environments.
