Case Studies

See below some examples of Customer Case Studies where we have been invited to improve the customers parts manufacturing or process, by Application Engineering from our PPC and Technical Engineers – designing and implementing improved solutions.

From CIS Product Proving Centre we provide a complete Application Engineering Service to our customers. From a 2D/3D part drawing, we are able to CAD/CAM, fixture, adopt best machining strategy and manufacture the customers part before qualifying to exacting measurement standards, using our extensive facilities and capabilities in house.

CIS have helped on a number of programs to increase cutting speed and/or tool life with a view to improving component throughput, in one case this helped Top Turn improve component production by 38% with a new strategy and improved tooling.

The service is fast, effective and friendly, it’s a minor investment that can streamline programs and machining techniques on components ensuring we get the best from our machinery.

CIS have programmed a number of difficult components, resulting in 100% correct parts, sometimes even machining the component on a prove out basis did not prove to be a problem, saving Hewland process time and enabling ‘right first time production’, Dave Hawke – Production Manager.

Following the Vargus Tooling UK new products open day hosted by yourselves at the above premises, I would like to extend our sincere thanks for the hospitality extended to both UK staff and our product manager from Vargus Israel.

We found the PPC (Product Proving Centre) to be clean, well laid out and fitted with a comprehensive range of modern CNC machines and measuring equipment.  The professionalism shown by the CIS staff was exemplary and your attention to detail and customer satisfaction is to be applauded.  I would have no hesitation in recommending your facility to others and I have recommended that all future product proving and demonstrations be carried out at your premises.
