What an exciting 3 months it's been. It all started out fairly slowly as a lot of these type of businesses do, but it's begun to gain a bit more momentum recently, taking on more clients, working on more and more interesting projects - the majority of which unfortunately I'm unable to talk about on here. Nevertheless I can talk a bit about what's coming next for Atom Precision.
Since starting out, I have been asked to look at some really interesting work - and a common question I get asked is "can you machine this for me?" Some of you may not know that we don't have a manufacturing facility here - my work is field and home based, where I consult businesses on how best to attack machining a component, setting up production by designing a jig or fixture setup, or simply (or not so simply!) programming a one off component for the client to run on their machining centre, so unfortunately the answer has more often than not been no. Until now.
Since beginning my career in engineering it has taken me many places and I've met many amazing engineers, and this got me thinking. Why can't I give something back by helping them to find machining work? Clients would come to me, and I would use my network to apply the correct "service provider" to the job. The machined components would come through me, as I'm putting my name to this and Atom Precision's reputation is riding on it, so I run everything through a stringent quality control procedure before it gets anywhere near the client as a finished component.
There's now a section on this website called "Machining" - this gives a little detail into what services we can provide. This ranges from simple laser cut sheet metal work, to full 5-axis billet machining, all beautifully finished with anodised finishes and laser marking capabilities.
It's a bespoke manufacturing service where clients can upload their own 3D models to quickly receive quotes for either one off prototypes or full batch production work. Is it all coming from China I hear you cry?! No, there are just some things that have to be looked at a little closer to home, however the far east does have it's place for certain applications. Luckily we have numerous contacts in multiple industries all around the globe, so there's sure to be a solution for your business in there!
I want to thank everyone for their ongoing support, and for helping towards a bright future at Atom Precision!
