CNC Machining/Milling

Earlier in the year, January 2010, we decided the time was right to invest in a new CNC milling machine, to further strengthen our ability to produce complex milled components, from a wide range of materials. We decided to invest in one of the latest Mori Seiki Milling machines and purchased a brand new Mori Seiki Vertical Machining Centre, DuraVertical5060. The increased speeds and feeds allow us to produce parts at a greater efficiency and accuracy that previously had not been possible. If you have any milling requirements please contact Rob Bennett on the contact page.

Manufacturing process and Quality Control

Batch quantities are monitored throughout the manufacturing process to ensure the highest standards of quality are maintained. Where problems occur, they are quickly identified and segregated. Measuring equipment is calibrated to exacting standards thus enabling accurate component inspection.

Scot Bennett Engineering has established a wide and varied customer base by concentrating on providing quality products at the right price at the right time.

The quality benchmark BS EN ISO 9002 accreditation was achieved by the company in 1995. Since then we have continually revised and improved its quality procedures to reflect the exacting standards of today's market place. ISO 9001:2000 accreditation was achieved in July 2003.

From the purchase of raw materials from a selective and approved supplier base, to identification throughout the manufacturing process including finishing processes, to final inspection and customer approval, Scot Bennett Engineering will endeavour to meet the highest standards possible to meet customer requirements.
