Committed to excellence, innovation, continuous process improvement and environmental protection, the NEL Division provide a flexible, cost-effective service producing quality precision engineered metal components for a wide range of industries world-wide.

A quality service

NEL offer a full manufacturing service from the preparation of computer aided design artwork and chemically machined metal components through to a fully assembled, quality approved product. The service can be customised to suit your individual requirements, selecting the specific techniques to match the materials and the component.

Our service is:

• Cost effective: low tool costs give competitive costs

• Flexible: range of techniques and finishes, ferrous and non-ferrous metals and alloys, prototype and volume production

• Efficient: delivery of precision products on time. In all our activities we set, and strive to achieve, quality standards of product and service that ensure efficient defect-free operation. By doing it right, first time, we ensure the satisfaction of our customers and optimise our own efficiency.

Our manufacturing methods assure the highest quality and fast service. The unique process has low tool-cost, using the state of the art CAD generated phototools, giving high dimensional accuracy, controllable and repeatable results. Even the most complex designs can be made to close tolerances, without stress or burrs. We offer high quality, low cost fabrication, ideally suited to both volume production and fast prototyping.

The flexibility of the process means that we can offer a range of techniques depending on the materials and the product, fabricating simple or complex designs. Used widely in electrical and electronic engineering the process can be applied to all other industries utilising most metals and alloys from 0.05mm to 2mm thickness.
