PQE’s expanding Machining Centre, with a growing range of machines, enhances the company’s ability to produce highly complex parts in all kinds of materials.

Renishaw Probe

The Renishaw Probe (pictured ) is used to identify and set up parts ,measure features in cycle for adaptive machining, as well as verifying finished component dimensions.

This touch probe improves efficiency and enables PQE to offer innovative solutions.

CNC Turning Centre

Pictured is a horizontal 5 axis turning centre complete with Y axis milling and sub spindle which allows for a second operation in a single set up.

The machine is of rigid, fully cast construction again adding to PQE’s ability to produce highly complex parts in a range of materials.
