Quality subcontract services from an established name...

machined componentsPowair is an established engineering company with a worldwide reputation for manufacturing high precision engineering products used in the press industry. Over 95% of the precision parts used in these products are manufactured in house.

Our subcontract machining division, set up in 1999, has recently expanded its resources and has the capacity to offer you high quality machined components at competitive prices.

Skilled staff with a pride in their work - our biggest asset...

drillingA plant list only tells part of the story. It's the people behind the equipment who really make the difference between success and failure. From machine programming through to inspection and packing; all our staff know they have a crucial role to play in meeting the requirements of our customers.

Batch quantities or one off, CAM through to manual - our resources can be tailored to meet your needs...

With over 30 machines including CNC machining centres with pallet changers, lathes with live tooling, through to manually operated machines with DRO facilities, we are able to schedule your work in the most cost-effective manner.

Because we maintain stocks of the components used in our own products we are able to divert resources when you need that important job done in a hurry.

CAM facilities based on the powerful Edgecam software.

machined pieceOur Aluminium surface treatment facilities can help reduce delivery times and costs...

Because of the high costs of anodising, Powair set up a tumbling facility to process the machined aluminium components used in their products. The tumbling process gives a "manufactured product" appearance to parts and also helps hide blemishes and scratches caused by manual handling. The complete process only takes a couple of hours.

It's now a popular part of our subcontract services.

Quality control is about equipment, procedures and attitude...

Quality is achieved by having the right people using the right procedures and equipment. Our recent acquisition of a computerised coordinate measuring system further extends our facilities.

As you would expect, we are accredited to ISO 9002
