The team at
Claro have been working with Tritech International for over 10 years and during
this time have completed a range of projects.
As a leading innovator it is important for TriTech to stay ahead of the
industry from both a manufacturing and design POV. Read below on the recent successes on the
latest projects with Claro.
Alastair Mitchell, Supply Chain Director at Tritech comments, “We have been particularly pleased with the sonar housings we recently transferred to Claro. I think here we are reaping the benefits of your continued investments in your people and equipment (modern 5-axis machines). The price is extremely competitive but there has been no compromise on quality.”
For more information on how we can you or to speak to one of our technical sales engineers, simply get in touch.
We recently announced the arrival of the Nakamura NTRX-300L at Claro Precision. This new turn-mill machining centre will be supplying components into a range of market sectors including; aerospace, medical, automotive, marine and oil & gas, enabling us to expand our production options for our customers.
Ultimately it will provide greater flexibility, repeatability and higher levels of production efficiency by reducing the number of setups between different machining centres. Here’s a little bit more information about the NTRX-300L supplied by the Engineering Technology Group (ETG):
Equipped with the best options for longer part machining, both spindles are 5 axis capable as well as positional 3+2, giving us the ability to machine features at almost any angle. This gives us and our customers completely new machining options. The ‘Smart-X’ is used as a control for the NTRX-300L which impresses not only with optimal graphic visuals of important machine functions but also offers significant ease of use.
Foundations ready for new machine installation at Claro
Since the beginning of the year The Pexion Group has begun the process of investing in carefully selected precision manufacturing machinery.
The foundations have been laid for the anticipated arrival of the new machine at Claro in August, positioning the business to further enhance and expand the service we provide to our valued and loyal customers.
Keep an eye out for this one!
We’ve Become More Integrated
At Claro you get a complete subcontract engineering solution to BS EN 9100 & ISO 13485 & ISO 9001 standards. Now, with sister sites across The Pexion Group we are able to increase our precision engineering offering to the defence, marine, energy, medical and scientific industries as well as integrating secondary processes such as sheet metal fabrication and electronics assembly.
‘Having worked with Claro over the course of multiple projects, when Blueprint Subsea identified a new product development requirement, involving Claro at the early concept stage was a logical decision.
The project required the creation of multiple components, most with complex geometry requiring extensive surface machining, and many created from materials that were unfamiliar to both companies at the time.
By working closely with Claro’s Design & Production Staff, based on feedback from initial prototype manufacture we were able to incorporate slight modifications to improve machinability and reduce costs moving in to the production phase, all with the confidence in Claro’s ability to design and manufacture the required jigs & fixtures to produce the components consistently to extremely tight tolerances and challenging surface finishes.
This latest project encapsulates Claro’s attitude and willingness to contribute from early development through to full production and consistently challenge the perceived limitations of machining capability.’
