SOLIDWORKS proves vital in manufacturing


The high tech environment of Cambridge and surrounding areas provides the ideal platform for a team of highly skilled engineers with extensive knowledge and specialist manufacturing techniques to supply the demanding needs of fast paced technology companies.

Maximum Precision, located just outside Ely, have quickly established themselves with a reputation for delivery high quality precision machined components for Rapid Prototype, First Batch Production and Full Scale Production.

Sales Manager, Jason Murfitt , comments “We offer consultations at the Research and Development stage to help develop a product that best meets the requirements for our customers. Furthermore our ever increasing capabilities and capacity enables us to service the needs of our clients whether it is for rapid prototyping, pre-production or volume production.

The addition of SOLIDWORKS has proved vital, as the majority of design details are received in SOLIDWORKS native format - which enables Maximum Precision to provide value engineering services and ensure the design is optimized for manufacturability in terms of time and cost.

It is clear that SOLIDWORKS is the most widely used 3D design system in the high tech companies we work with, so we want to promote our services as an integrated part of the customer supply chain. Many customers send their design data as a SOLIDWORKS model without detail drawing, capturing critical machining information and tolerances as an integral part of the 3D Model. It is important that we can read this data directly, without the need for any translation through IGES or STEP. As Manufacturing Engineers, we have quickly adapted to SOLIDWORKS; with its intuitive, easy to learn interface working exactly the way a Manufacturing Engineer thinks.”

Maximum Precision use One CNC as their Manufacturing System, which is a Partner product that reads SOLIDWORKS data directly for the creation of the CNC programs to drive an array of turning and milling centres. Maximum Precision are continually investing in the latest equipment including CNC sliding head, Turning centres and Machining centres, which offer live tooling and 4th axis capabilities. Utilising these machines, supplied by leading companies such as Star Micronics, Mills CNC and Hass Automation, allow Maximum Precision to eliminate second operations and reduce time and cost.

Mark Bradford, Managing Director at Innova Systems - Experts in SOLIDWORKS Training & Support commented “Technology customers are driven by the highest quality products, delivered on time at the right price. Maximum Precision are a great example of a company who have invested both in machining capacity and design soft ware to ensure they can compete and prosper in the high tech manufacturing sector. We are delighted to be in partnership with the team at Maximum Precision.”
