Metal Work & Product Manufacturing Technology and Equipment

One of the areas JC Metalworks focuses on is the investment in state of the art technology and equipment, as it's important to us that all products are manufactured to a high standard whilst cutting down on production time and cost as much as possible. Here are the various metalworking manufacturing services offered by JC Metalworks and manufacturing equipment used.

 Design and Engineering

Our design and engineering team utilises a full library of CAD/CAM software packages, including SolidWorks and Radan to create manufacturing and engineering drawings. 

This enables clients to view accurate 3D models for approval prior to the manufacturing and production stage. It allows for changes and modifications to improve either the product itself or the manufacturing processes used to create it.
