Moving with technological advances to deliver high quality products...



AR Engineering Industries Ltd is home to a well established milling department, we have moved with the technological advances available in the industry making important use of several CNC mills, including machines with up to a 20 tool changer facility and fourth axis capabilities.

To improve production times for each project, we design and make fixtures and use carefully selected job specific tooling. The use of CNC technology coupled with palletising our components has the benefits of increased productivity with no compromise to the high precision and quality of our work.

In addition to the use of CNC plant we also carry out conventional machining production on the traditional Bridgeport vertical mills and also our Elliot horizontal mill.
