Machining

At John Heine, we are equipped to handle almost any precision machining job. It doesn’t matter how large or difficult it may be.  Our comprehensive facilities allow us to cover the full spectrum of manufacture from scrap steel to finished machine tool, including assembly and even on site service. The Company specialises in machining wear parts in Heinehard, Ni-Hard, Ni-Resist and Hi Chrome Iron. We are able to machine up to 750 BHN depending on shape and mass.

With a machine shop brimming with technology, and well over 100 years experience behind us, we enjoy a challenge.  Our skilled tradesmen are experienced with all types of machinery, both conventional and CNC, and associated tooling.  We have a large range of machines in our plant and can therefore maintain full control over all aspects of production.  We run a Quality Assurance system to ISO 9001 which is accredited by BSI.
