The Company and the manufacturing of precision engineered products is assessed by the Chamber Certification Assessment Services (C.C.A.S.) and accredited to British Standard ISO 9001:2008. WKW is currently also working towards the I.S.O.14001 Environmental Certification and the OHSAS 18001:2007 Occupational Health and Safety Qualification.
Temperature Controlled Inspection Department
A climate controlled Inspection Department means that measurements are consistent and equipment standards are always maintained. Accurate component checking both during and as part of a final inspection procedure will be achieved. Computerised Measuring Machines (C.M.M.) allow us to measure dimensions with precision accuracy that will highlight any flaws in the manufacturing process.
On the Job Inspections
|Co-Ordinate Measuring Machines (C.M.M.) we have available and Measuring Ranges|
|Make||Model||Max: X- Dim.||Max: Y- Dim||Max: Z – Dim|
|Mitutoyo||Crystal Apex S544||505mm||405mm||405mm|
|Mitutoyo||Crystal Apex S574||505mm||700mm||405mm|
|Mitutoyo||Crystal Apex C9106||905mm||1005mm||600mm|
|Mitutoyo SJ-210 Surface Hardness Tester|

In addition to our computerised measuring machines above, we have the benefits of a
Portable Faro Gage Plus that has a measuring area of 1200mm ( 4ft) of spherical volume and has an accuracy of 0.018mm (0.0007in.). The Portable Faro Gage Plus has been designed for the shop floor and allows personnel the ability of a fast set up which allows parts to be measured quickly, easily and above all accurately.
Programmes are in operation for all inspection equipment that allows faster inspection of repeat and batch work.
Non Destructive Examination (N.D.E)
A testing technique that enables us to check for flaws in raw and finished jobs without damaging the component. Processes include UT, MPI and LPI. We can also measure the hardness of raw materials and finished parts before or after heat treatment to Rockwell and Brinell standards. An extensive range of Gagemaker thread gauges means that we can accurately check the threads of a wide variety of thread forms both internal and external, over a size range of 5/8” (16mm) to 24” (600mm)
We are also able to carry out reverse engineering of obsolete parts from samples using proven techniques. This work involves the use of 2D/3D Solid Model CAD.
Quality of Workmanship and High Standards of Customer Service are Paramount here in
WKW Precision Engineering.
