Sourcing high quality castings from low cost base countries
Published: 3 June 2013 - Rachael Morling
For nearly forty years, Blue Diamond has been combining its engineering skills with the ability to source manufacture of metal, plastic and rubber components from off-shore suppliers, particularly in the Far East. Now, that capability is extended to cast components.
Small to medium quantities of castings are offered in a range of sizes and materials which include aluminium, cast iron and various alloys. Castings can be supplied unfettled for machining by the customer or fully machined and finished to the customer’s specification.
Investment in the latest inspection and measurement technologies allows Blue Diamond to accurately inspect and measure all components for which it is responsible, in line with its Quality Management System which complies with the requirement of BS EN ISO 9001: 2008.
Complete project management is a Blue Diamond speciality, from the supply of engineering drawings and technical specifications to preparation of prototypes, supervision of production runs and responsibility for stock control, ensuring that deliveries dovetail with a customer’s production requirements including Kan-Ban and Just in Time.
