One offs, specials and high quality work from Safire:

Note the sharp internal corners from the milling process

Combined Waterjet and machining:-

This is a good in-site into the quality of our work, we were commissioned to produce this one off feature part for a display piece of our clients work. As High end furniture makers they wanted to show off their ability, quality and some fine materials. We machined the front jaw of this vice out of a solid block of brass, it measures 300mm x 150mm x 38mm. The brass was machined on all faces, then machine on the front to a depth of 17mm leaving a thin boarder of 3mm all round, Note the sharp internal corners on the full internal depth that were very difficult to produce. We then water jet cut the pyrite slab which is a very awkward and unstable material to cut which is also a very expensive. This was cut to a very fine tolerance for a perfect fit.

This is a one off specialised high quality job, We offer a wide range of services and abilities, please have a look at our Safire website for more information on machining.

What can we do for you?
