Our CNC Machining Capacity

A&Z Engineering (Reading) Limited undertake both low and high volume production, using CNC controlled precision engineering machines for turning and milling with the aid of our new CNC co-ordinate measuring machine, SolidWorks CAD-CAM system and our highly skilled engineers.  We have also recently invested in a new MRP system by Tricorn with full scheduler.

Over the past five years we have updated and grown our machine list allowing for increased productivity and capacity. We know how important it is to have the right machinery so only invest in brand new high end, up to date technology - we do not compromise on the quality nor the brand to ensure we keep our products at the highest standard and our work flow uninterrupted.
