Prototype / Low Volume Machined Components


Vertex is an experienced machinist from castings and solid billet. We have a range of machine tools at our factory in Birmingham, capable of 3, 4 and 5-axis machining and 2 & 3-axis turning. Our new DMG Mori DMF 260| 11 5-axis travelling column machine with extra long Y-axis is capable of huge component machining up to 3,200mm x 1,100mm. Our Mazak 3 and 4-axis vertical machining centres complement the DMG Mori, and our new driven tooling CNC turning centre and range of universal machining centres, jig borers, surface grinders and bed mills complete our machine shop capability.

We can machine in most materials, from aluminium to hard steels, and specialist metals such as NiAlBronze and gunmetals.

3-, 4- & 5-Axis prismatic components

Machining of cast light alloy, bronzes, iron, steel and exotics in prototype and low volume using a range of machine tools including: 2 x DMG Mori DMF 260| 11, Mazak i600 Variaxis, Mazak VCN510-2, Mikron machining centre, Correa A10 bed mill and a SIP Genevoise HY8 Jig Borer machine.


Turned components

Our new DMG Mori CTX 510 ecoline CNC turning centre is perfect for your turned components, and its driven tool capability means holes can be machined and tapped in one hit, maximising both accuracy and throughput.


Machining from solid

We machine from solid aluminium, bronzes, steel and exotics in one-off and small batch volumes. Our talented engineers are supported by 3 seats of Vero Visicam V21 working directly with Parasolid, IGES and STEP files, DNC linked to machines.


Quality assurance

Operating a BSI approved Quality Management System, we also have a Mitutoyo Crysta Apex C CMM in a temperature controlled room. Equipped with probe changer, MCOSMOS software and Renishaw probing including scanning, with a capacity of 1000x1000mm.
