Frequently Asked Questions
Can you give us blades with longer life?
Yes. We have a range of materials we can recommend including our own hard metals. We introduced hard metals to the UK and are the UKs most experienced company working with hard metals for industrial applications.
What is your turnaround time?
We normally offer a 3-week turnaround for heat-treated components. If products aren’t heat-treated, we are able to turnaround orders within two weeks.
What happens if we have a smash-up in our machine?
In that case we would ‘rush’ extra parts to cover any shortfall but if we are supplying on a regular basis then we would draw from the buffer stock.
