Our comprehensive machining service, gives us the capability to meet and exceed our customers expectations.
At Progressive Technology we are equipped with high specification CNC machine tools to offer fully simultaneous 3-axis and 5-axis milling. Our rigid & robust machining centres offer a platform for highly accurate production with impeccable quality levels and surface finishes. Additionally, our industry leading machining centres are programmed with the manufacturing industry's most innovative CAD/CAM programming software from Open Mind Technology. We can produce small intricate components with the tightest of tolerances through to parts with dimensions up to 800mm by 800mm.
The combination of market leading software and machining centres allows us to manufacture anything from prototypes through to batches of highly complex parts. We use a wide manner of materials from plastics, brass and aluminium through to more difficult to machine materials such as steels, titanium, inconel, aerospace alloys and composites.
Our turning department offers a diverse selection of machine tools that are capable of machining anything from small intricate parts through to large components up to 550mm diameter with a 2m maximum length, on robust and rigid twin spindle turning centres.
The turning department runs day and night shifts to guarantee we can always meet the capacity demands of customers. Continuously turning parts with complex forms from materials such as stainless steels, inconel and aluminium alloys, we can meet the diverse turning demands of the oil & gas, F1, aerospace, medical and general industrial market sectors.

Serving industry sectors that demand the utmost in precision and complexity, Progressive Technology has invested in a Fanuc Robocut Wire EDM machine to produce forms and shapes beyond the capable realms of even the highest specification CNC turning and milling centres.
To further enhance the company's ability to produce intricate forms with outstanding precision levels and lead times, Progressive has developed its own tooling and jig systems for the efficient wire machining of parts
With a dedicated inspection department that employs state-of-the-art technology and experienced quality control staff, customers can rest assured that every component produced is machined to exacting standards. The accuracy of the machine tools at Progressive Technology is supported through the production stage with CAD/CAM software that eliminates operator error and ensures that the throughflow of parts to the inspection department is seamless.
We have invested in the highest specification and highest resolution form testers, CMM, shadow graph and hardness testing equipment to ensure that all parts adhere to the strictest of quality controls that are in accordance with our quality assurance policy.
