William Cope machine castings to high tolerances using modern CNC lathes and 3 and 5 axis CNC milling machines including simultaneous 5 axis machining enabling us to machine complex parts to suit a wide variety of applications.

We can machine castings in materials including aluminium, iron, steel, brass amongst others to customer specifications.

Smaller items up to 250mm cubed depending on the application can be machined utilising our smaller 5-axis machine complete with 7 station pallet changer. With this arrangement we can machine large batches but are also flexible enough to be able to machine one offs too.

We can machine up to 1300mm x 650mm x 500mm on our latest 3 axis machines and our larger 5 axis machine will take a part up to 700mm diameter x 600mm high. Our machines are equipped with the latest Renishaw probing and tool height measuring systems ensuring the high accuracy of parts whilst maintaining competitive pricing, cutting down cycle times and setting operations and also enabling us to run ‘lights out’.

With the help of modern manufacturing software we can machine castings to technical drawings and/or CAD models.

Components are inspected to high standards in our inspection department using our CNC Co-ordinate measuring machine and other measuring devices regularly calibrated in line with our ISO 9001 accreditation.
