Engineering growth: Coventry manufacturer invests half a million pounds in new machinery and calls for more skilled workers

A Coventry engineering firm based at Charter Avenue Industrial Estate has embarked on a growth program that will see its turnover double to £20 million within five years.

In order to meet this target MNB Precision Ltd has invested over £500,000 in four new machines and taken on nearly 30 staff over the last 12 months. It hopes to fill a further 15 skilled positions by the end of year, bringing the total workforce to 80.

What is Nuclear Engineering?

As a precision engineering company, we often get asked what is nuclear engineering and what does it involve?

Many people will automatically think of power plants when they hear the word nuclear. However, nuclear engineering is much more than that.

Difference between Sandblasting and Shot Peening

Here at MNB Precision, we have teams of precision engineers specialising in many different engineering services including shot peening. One of the many questions we see is what is the difference between shot peening and sandblasting? So we have listed the advantages and disadvantages of both services.

How important is Precision Engineering

With the modern manufacturing industry, we wouldn’t be where we are without precision engineering.

Only precision engineering can handle the demand of technology with the finer requirements and mass production. Many people don’t think about the precision that goes into making parts, whether they are large or small, precision engineering takes place in different industries such as nuclear and aerospace. Precision engineering ensures a longer running life along with less wear or fatigue, giving a better lifespan compared to manually manufactured parts.

Coordinate Measuring Machines Inspections

What are CMM inspections?

A CMM (coordinate measuring machine) inspection is where objects for products can be inspected for quality and measured. A Coordinate Measuring Machine is used to measure the dimensions and characteristics of an object. It can measure a single point in a 3D shape or the whole shape. CMM is made up of three axes X, Y and Z and each axis helps to measure the product as well as be able to position accurately in other precision machines.

Everything you need to know about CNC Machines

CNC Machining Explained

CNC (Computer Numerical Control) Milling Machines are controlled by software allowing you to create designs easily and the machine to create the product, simple. However, digging deeper into the world of CNC it can get more complex. For example, a CNC machine can host a wide variety of different functions including routeing, milling, drilling and cutting which means they are incredibly versatile machines.

The Basics to Wire Erosion

EDM (Electro Discharge Machining) Wire Erosion is a precision engineering process where a work piece is cut through with a strand of wire, it creates electrical sparks between the wire and the work piece, and these electrical sparks cut the work piece. It’s a cost-effective method that has incredible accuracy on thicker component parts. Wire cutting machines can cut complex shapes even in tough materials.

Shot peening explained

What is Shot Peening?

As a leading precision engineering company in Coventry, we carry out various engineering services such as shot peening. Shot peening is a controlled process used to create a compressive residual pressure layer and modify the mechanical property of various metals. During the shot peening process, the material is shaped by bombarding ‘shots’ at the surface. These ‘shots’ are metallic balls or glass beads. The force at which they are shot is sufficient to create new shapes, each piece of shot acts as a mini peening hammer forming dimples, for this to happen the material must yield in tension.

Advantages of using Precision Engineering

Save time and money by using Precision Engineers

No Human Error Risks

When you use precision engineering to produce products you are eliminating a large amount of human error risk. The numerically controlled machines are advanced enough that there is little need for human monitoring and supervision. Having slight human controlled also makes it cheaper to use precision engineering and no need to correct any errors, which otherwise would have been costly.

What’s the real cost of the oil and gas slump?

You don’t have to look far to see that the current state of the oil and gas market is causing many businesses significant headaches.  The most recent price fall in the cost of oil, which is down by around 60% since mid-2014, is, of course, having a huge impact on the sector, but it’s also having a knock-on effect on other sectors too.
