Precision Engineers since 1986

Hemlock specialise in the machining of aluminium components using 16000 rpm Brother Speedios with less that 1 second tool change times.

Milling

CNC Milling

Most of our 3 axis milling machines are geared up with 4th axis units and/or multi vice workholding systems which enable us to clamp up to 8 components in a single operation. This means that cycle time is extended. This gives time for the operator to do other work within cycle - such as inspection - and also reduces the number of overall operations.

Milling

5-axis Milling

We currently have three 5 -axis milling machines. If the component has form machining or is extremely complex then ideally we would want you to issue a solid model to us so. If required we can create this model ourselves from drawings or components. These machines can do high speed surfacing work or machine complex multi-axis operations that guarantee the relative geometry of all features.

Turning

CNC Turning

We can offer a full range of CNC Turning capacity through our sister company HPC Services Ltd. They have invested millions into the latest muti-axis CNC Lathes and slidinghead lathes. HPC operate a very similar quality system to Hemlock and are also ISO9002 approved.

Distinguishing factors

A third 5-axis, vertical-spindle machining centre has been installed by subcontractor Hemlock Engineering, Nottingham, in response to a steady increase in work from a variety of sources. Aircraft seat parts, medical prostheses, components for laser equipment used in dentistry and printing, fire suppression nozzles and parts for camera tripods and beer pumps are typical of the diverse range of contracts regularly received from more than 200 customers.

British Manufacturing at its best (with a little help from Japan)

A seminal moment has arrived in British manufacturing, it appears. Using the latest ultra-high-speed machine tools, UK subcontractors can rival their competitors in low-wage countries and still make a profit. Paul Cobb, Managing Director of Nottingham subcontract machinists, Hemlock Engineering Ltd, describes how this is possible using 30-taper Brother Speedio machines.
