The company specialises in the manufacture of new designs requiring high precision, especially fabrications involving cutting, folding, punching and welding of sheet metal and plastics. With machine shop and tool room facilities, specialist components and precision tooling can be manufactured on site. Formrite have made many such special products for blue chip companies in the Aerospace and communication industries, where reliability and accuracy must be guaranteed to the very highest standards. Typical orders have been for 10 – 1000 units although one-off prototypes are frequently requested.
Our state of the art Radan programming system, enables us to offer a cost-effective service with reduced timescales. Repeat orders are digitally archived, allowing to easily access previous orders and ensure that the standards met before are reached again, time after time.
Formrite manufactures in mild steel, stainless steel, aluminium alloys, copper, brass and plastics. A large stock of mild steel, stainless steel and aluminium is always available and also held in our Bonded Stores are quantities of special aluminium alloys for use in the Aerospace industries. Having access to this stock makes Formrite very competitive in terms of delivery times and price.
Painting and Finishing.
We offer a full screen printing and labelling service including the ability to produce artwork from all common file formats. We also have the ability create and produce artwork for customers who are unable to provide electronic copies.
We also offer fantastic finishing capabilities. Alocrom or Chromate Coating Service, gives aluminium an iridescent protective finish approved to UK and US standards and by all major aircraft manufacturers. This can be offered as a stand alone service if needed. To further extend the services on offer, Formrite have expanded their plant to include ‘Paint Shop’, ‘Stove Enamelling’ and ‘Powder Coat’ facilities. This enables us to have ultimate control over quality and delivery times and also means we are able to give a more competitive price. These facilities have been granted approval by local leading Aerospace companies.
Formrite operates ISO9001:2008 and has invested in the latest computer controlled inspection equipment ensuring that the stringent company Quality Policy is constantly upheld. All articles produced by Formrite are inspected for the accuracy of production and the quality of finishing, before despatch. The specification required by the customer is always firmly established before manufacture and no products leave the workshop unless the specification is met or exceeded. This is why Formrite is approved by the Aerospace industry.
