Our Diverse Equipment Range

At Ardel Engineering, we pride ourselves on our top-grade equipment, which enables us to meet diverse manufacturing needs. Here's a closer look at some of the machines we use:

  • Swiss Screw Turning: Swiss turning is a specialized machining process designed for creating small, precise turned parts with high precision. Our Swiss Screw department boasts four 20 mm and three 32 mm Citizen Swiss Screw machines, designed for precision and rapid turning applications. Our capabilities include achievable dimensions, min/max workpieces, tolerances, axis, volumes, and materials handled.
  • Vertical and Horizontal CNC Milling Machines: Vertical milling machines typically feature long and slender cutting tools, whereas horizontal mills are equipped with shorter and broader cutting instruments. With 22 vertical CNC Haas machines, our CNC milling services are enhanced by equipped pallet changers to minimize production downtime, excelling in production runs of all sizes. Capabilities include achievable dimensions, min/max workpieces, tolerances, axis, volumes, and materials handled.
  • Wire EDM Precision: Wire EDM is utilized to precision-cut intricate 2D shapes or profiles from materials that conduct electricity. Our five FANUC wire EDMs add the final finishing touches to our products, ensuring impeccable quality. Capabilities of wire EDM precision include achievable dimensions, min/max workpieces, tolerances, axis, volumes, and materials handled.

All our work undergoes meticulous inspection using our state-of-the-art Zeiss CMM and Calypso software, ensuring precision and accuracy at every stage. This means we can deliver consistent quality throughout our manufacturing processes.

Organized and Efficient Workspace

Our commitment to the organization is crucial to our efficiency and productivity. Our facility is divided into these specialized departments:

  • Swiss Department
  • Production Milling Department
  • EDM Departments

In addition to our core departments, our operations include the Quick Turn Department. This specialized unit focuses on creating complex prototypes, unique projects, and one-offs, enabling other departments to dedicate their efforts to larger tasks.

This systematic strategy significantly reduces multitasking, guaranteeing an impressive average project turnaround time of 2-3 weeks. This approach upholds our esteemed reputation for punctual completion while preserving the high quality of our deliverables.

Expertise and Training of Our Staff

Our success can be attributed to our exceptionally trained and highly educated team, adept at using advanced software like GibbsCAM and Pro-Engineer. GibbsCAM is utilized for large-volume CNC milling and Swiss Screw Turning machine tasks. At the same time, Pro-Engineer is employed to design custom models and create highly precise prototypes.

Our staff's expertise and dedication enable us to effectively tackle complex projects and high-volume orders with precision and timeliness, meeting our clients' diverse requirements. Whether you need high-volume production or custom prototypes, our team has the expertise to deliver the best results possible.
