General Engineering / fitting & turning

Traditional engineering practice encompasses a variety of fitting, turning, bending and material preparation techniques. Formerly the backbone of the engineering industry, these techniques have lost popularity due to the advent of CNC machinery and automation.

However, the benefits of such techniques cannot be understated in quick and flexible short-run production. Leaning on many years’ of aircraft-industry experience   and utilising its large array of machinery    Hand-On Industries can complete general engineering tasks of any complexity, scale and scope to a high level of quality and accuracy.
