A customer who specialises in producing machinery for metal packaging required nine specialist brass gears for an export order to repair a broken down machine.
We manufactured the components and delivered them to the customer on the date required.
As well as turning, gear cutting and grinding, the gears required internal lubrication channels machining in, an extremely complicated process.
The customer was delighted with the quality of the work and the on-time delivery.
We recently completed a large 40 tooth gear and sprockets for a major Yorkshire-based textile refinisher.
The gears were for one of its large automatic high-pressure steam finishing machines.
The components were required quickly to prevent the machine from ceasing to work.
The job, which involved turning, gear cutting, keywaying and final grinding, was turned around in seven working days and delivered to the customer before the finishing machine had to be taken out of production.
The Kenward team has manufactured several large shafts and rings for a machine which is to be relocated in the Dominican Republic next month.
Our skilled engineers have machined new components, cut keyways and final ground the hardened components to the exact dimensions as the originals.
More work of this type is expected in the future.
Our engineers responded rapidly when a large pharmaceutical manufacturer suffered a major production line failure due to a cutter breaking up.
On being told of the situation, we collected a spare cutter from the customer and brought it to our workshop where we it was ground and sharpened.
To the customer's delight, the cutter was returned within four hours enabling production to resume.
We recently received our first order from a large Tier 2 MOD supplier.
The work, scheduled to be delivered in early February, involves a large amount of turning, milling and grinding as well as coded welding and stress relieving.
All materials and every process undertaken have to be certified and documented to conform with MOD performance and quality standards.
A recent investment in CNC machining capacity has contributed to our being awarded this business.
We are pleased to announce that Kenward Precision Engineering has been awarded Approved Supplier Status by a leading global heavy engineering group.
This follows Kenward delivering work on time, to specification and on budget.
The approval will result in Kenward being requested to submit tenders for additional work.
Additionally, a leading pharmaceutical product manufacturer has just awarded our company a contract to manufacture a new set of stainless steel rollers for one of its packaging lines.
The steel bar will be turned, ground to size, slotted and drilled.
We are about to reverse engineer a set of gears for a Triumph Tiger Cub motorcycle.
The work for this great, British-made bike will involve accurate measurement of the gearing, turning, gear cutting, hardening and final grinding.
Meanwhile, our engineers are reaching the end of cutting gears for two early 1900’s Panhards, which are being restored before being put on display in the North Yorkshire Motor Museum.
The work, which demands meticulous accuracy to ensure perfect meshing, will have taken three months to complete.
With access to internal CNC turning and milling, Kenward is now able to offer existing and new customers batch component manufacturing at highly competitive prices and exceptional quality.
Five CNC lathes and two CNC milling machines enable us to offer rapid turnaround of orders when required.
Our engineers have recently started to grind and sharpen cutting tools for a well-known pharmaceutical manufacturer.
The customer has been so pleased with the quality and service levels that they plan to give us more machining for plant maintenance and breakdown work.
We continue to support the maintenance and engineering function at a world renowned heavy engineering business by offering technical advice, outstanding quality and reliability and rapid turnaround to eliminate or minimise any downtime.
Manufacturing components for classic cars is one of our specialities, so we were pleased to receive an order for six input shafts to be fitted to 1930s vintage Talbots.
Working from original drawings, our engineers have machined the shafts. They will then cut in the splines, case harden them and apply a final grind to ensure that they work perfectly when fitted.
