One company, two divisions – working as one. At Linear Motion, our knowledge and expertise in CAD design, CNC and conventional machining, and behaviour of materials will give you the confidence that your engineering needs will be in our safe hands. Whether it is one-off prototypes to large volume supply, we are your problem solvers. That is our high privilege. From large turned flanges in specialist stainless steel for petrochemical applications, to CNC machined Aluminium billet and polyurethane patterns for the automotive industry, to bespoke machined shaft for pneumatic machinery for the packaging and food industries, Linear Motion has the technical expertise and plant capabilities that you need. CAD At Linear Motion, we have our own in-house design capabilities, using the latest VISI 3D CAD software and DFM techniques to further resolve your design concept, and to produce working parametric models and engineering drawings to BS8888. Single and Multi-component assemblies, animations and renderings can be created that enable you to assess the design completely before continuing to the next phase of production. Once the design is complete, the CAD model is used to generate the cutting toolpaths though our VISI Machining Strategies software. This ensures that the final product matches the design precisely, and if machined on our CNC Machining and Turning Centres, machining times can be closely calculated to give the most competitive quotations. Fundamental to how we work, is a clear commitment of engaging in two way communication at all stages of the design process. This ensure that your project is progressed accurately and expediently. ‘There is the satisfaction of watching a figment of the imagination emerge through the aid of science to a plan on paper. Then it moves to realization in metal. That is the engineer’s high privilege.” ― Herbert Hoover Continuous Investment in CNC Machining equipment over the years combined with our highly trained and experienced staff, has put Linear Motion on the map as a dynamic precision engineering company at the forefront of Machining Excellence. With our numerous CNC Machining Centre’s and CNC Centre Lathes by market leading manufacturers as Haas, Hurco and XYZ, we are able to react to customers engineering needs, quickly and decisively. Whether it is one-off prototypes, small batch, or large volume requirements, our plant capabilities in synergy with the experience, versatility and flexibility of our staff, will ensure your engineering problems will be a thing of the past. Precision Turning Our CNC centre lathes are capable of machining up to 300mm diameters whilst our conventional lathes can machine up to 550mm. Diameters of up to 1320mm can be turned on our vertical borers. We also offer trepanning, internal and external screw thread cutting, drilling, grooving and knurling. Our understanding of machining materials gives us the edge when manufacturing customers components for industries as diverse as petrochemical, water treatment and white goods. We work with materials as diverse as carbon steels, specialist stainless steels, non-ferrous materials such as brass, copper and aluminium, as well as nylon and other polymers. From large Inconel flanges to small PTFE washers, Linear Motion gives the same care and level of engineering diligence to every component we manufacture. Precision Milling, Drilling & Grinding Linear Motion is proud that every component we manufacture has the same passion and expertise given to it throughout its manufacturing journey, irrespective of whether it is the production of a 1-off prototype, small limited batch, or part of a much larger volume requirement. From small, intricate port blocks for the water treatment industry, to machined valve bodies and large bolts & flanges for the petrochemical industry, our precision milling, drilling and grinding machines have the capability and capacity to machine components in a range of materials to the exact tolerances you require. Linear Bar & Accessories We are able to supply hardened and ground linear shafts in various lengths and diameters both in solid, hollow or stainless bar, from our extensive stock. At Linear Motion, we pride ourselves on our in-house engineering capabilities. It is these capabilities, combined with our knowledge and expertise that enables us to machine your linear shaft requirements to your exact specifications: internal and external threads, grooves, drilled and tapped holes, milled or ground flats and keyways. It is also these capabilities that give us the confidence in guaranteeing our customers, the best possible turnaround of their requirements at the most competitive price.
