In house Design
In a perfect situation all applications would be covered by standard chucks and jaws, in reality to get the best performance or because it is technically impossible to hold the workpiece with standard products it is often necessary to use specifically designed chucks and jaws. This is where Thame ask you to let our specialist design engineers look at your problem and offer the optimum chuck and jaw solution. We will analyse your equipment and manufacturing operations to develop a specific recommendation to suit your workpiece.
"We were looking for a company help resolve our workholding issues with tibial components on a horizontal milling machine. Thame Engineering came in to discuss our requirements then provided an initial design concept and manufactured a prototype design, all within a rapid timescale. Throughout the process, they constantly communicated with us about their questions and progress. After trials, we are now looking to scale up the project for multiple parts; this is the confidence Thame Engineering has given us. Working with David and the team at Thame Engineering is a great partnership."
