An Alternative To OEM Replacement Parts For Production Lines

Ordering a replacement part for your production line equipment should be straightforward. You call the original equipment manufacturer and place an order, right? Unfortunately, getting the replacement components with a good price and turnaround is not always easy. OEMs produce high-quality spare parts, but their focus is volume, not necessarily replacement parts. Large and busy companies aren’t always focused on fast delivery for spares since they don’t stake their reputation on speed. As a result, your production line may experience downtime when parts break down. What is the alternative? A third party manufacturer

Case Study: The Challenge Of Taking On A New Manufacturing Task

There are many ways we get involved with projects. Sometimes we are asked to look at ways of modifying existing parts to allow new functionality or operation outside of normal scope, sometimes we are asked to repair damaged components, and sometimes we are presented with a series of parts and are asked to replicate them. We would like to share some reflections on a recent project that we feel is revealing about the way we approach engineering challenges. The project was by no means straightforward or plain sailing; but the

OEM Or Aftermarket?

It’s a question you have probably asked yourself: which is better, OEM or aftermarket? Not so long ago, the answer was clear, but technology has changed things considerably, and today the question needs asking again. Advantages & Disadvantages Of OEM Solutions Starting out with OEM solutions, there are several obvious advantages. The first is material conformity; that is the materials will always comply perfectly with the original specifications. In a similar way, tolerances and finishes are always to the exact specifications of the originals parts. However, that perfect specification comes

Engineering in Reading, Slough, High Wycombe & Berkshire

Woodley Engineering offers a rare blend of up to the minute CNC machining technology and old fashioned skills. We can, of course, produce intricately precision machined parts on CNC machining centres, either as a one off or in multiples of many hundreds. Design, drawing and set up time accounts for a large proportion of the production costs on smaller quantities, so for the most cost effective solution, orders of a minimum of 10 are recommended unless a prototype is required pre-production. Alongside these capabilities, we also offer a highly skilled
