Services

Our service focus is delivering accurate and cost-effective results for our customers.

Flexible Machining Systems provide machined precision components as well as mechanical and electrical assemblies for various sectors within the manufacturing industry.

We are a AS9100D and BS EN ISO9001 certified company who can offer multiple services and processes.

Our services include new product introduction support, small and large coordinate measuring capability and ultrasonic cleaning.

We plan and execute customer orders with dedicated teams in engineering, supply chain, production planning and project management.

Our aim is to provide all of our customers with end-to-end support and solutions.

Flexible Machining Systems is also supported by our sister company Horsham Sheet Metal.

Horsham Sheet Metal specialise in providing small, medium and large sheet metal and fabricated parts, frames, cabinets and special projects.

3, 4 and 5-Axis CNC Machining

Our state of the art 3, 4 and 5-axis machine centres enable us to produce prototype parts, short-run production parts, and drill holes with compound angles faster and more efficiently.

It avoids the need for multiple set-ups, resulting in high accuracy and repeatability at a cost-effective price.

We can take your concept designs from prototyping through to volume production, across a wide range of exotic materials including titanium, Inconel, Monel and duplex to name a few.

CNC Milling

Our range of 3, 4 and 5-axis CNC milling machines give us the flexibility to produce parts within a maximum envelope of 1740 mm x 760 mm x 660 mm.

Flexible Machining Systems can provide you with simple or complex milled parts at competitive prices, in both low and high volume batches as required.

We can machine a wide variety of materials including aluminium, stainless steels and high performance plastics, taking your products and ideas right from prototyping, through to production quantities, adding additional value through sub or finished assembly, should your process require it.

Quality is at the core of our business, ably demonstrated by our commitment to our AS9100D and BS EN ISO9001 certifications and the unparalleled capabilities of our CMM inspection department.

CNC Turning

Flexible Machining Systems offer an extensive range of CNC turning services with full turn/mill capability.

This capability dramatically improves the efficiency of manufacture for components that require both types of operation.

Many of our lathes are bar fed, which increases manufacturing efficiency, reducing component cost on larger production runs.

CMM Inspection

Coordinate measuring machine inspection for small and large machined components.

Our Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) enables our quality team to inspect parts up to approximately 2 metres (2000mm) in length, 1 metre (1000mm) in width and 1 metre (1000mm) in height. FMS will also provide a full dimensional inspection report on request.

Ultrasonic Cleaning

Aqueous ultrasonic cleaning services adds to our comprehensive range of CNC machining services.

Ultrasonic cleaning is the single most effective method for metal parts, cleaning inaccessible and hard-to-reach areas of items.

Our standard 4-stage aqueous ultrasonic cleaning system involves heated ultrasonic clean, rinse, and warm air-dry processes, ideal for complex precision engineered parts used in sectors such as aerospace and automotive.

Production engineering and customer design support

We can offer our customers our technical experience during R&D and new product development processes.

Our highly skilled engineers will work with you to optimise component manufacturing, using the latest CAD/CAM software, from initial prototype to full production.

Working as an extension of your own business we can advise on material selection, reducing machining times, appropriate tolerancing, and ultimate finishes achievable.

We will work with you to understand your initial requirement and throughout the manufacturing life of the component or subassembly.
