Buck & Hickman, the UK’s leading supplier of industrial maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) products and services, has launched a new fast and flexible Bore and Keyway Machining Service.

This latest addition to the company’s range of engineering services has seen new bore, keyway and grubscrew machinery installed, operated by experienced in-house engineers. Now, Brammer Buck & Hickman can rework products to suit customers’ specific requirements and within a short time frame.

The new Bore and Keyway Machining Service encompasses horizontal and vertical adaptations. The service that is expected to have the greatest demand is machining customer bore and keyways into pilot bored products such as sprockets and couplings. Sprockets are stocked either pre-bored to receive a taper lock bush, or as pilot bored versions that can be machined with multiple bore sizes. In addition, a bespoke service is offered enabling modification to off the shelf products.

Darren Smart, Category Director - MRO at Brammer Buck & Hickman, commented: “Whilst we have been providing a basic Bore and Keyway Machining Service to customers, up until now this has been outsourced. By investing in state-of-the-art machinery, and staff training, we are delighted to bring this service in-house, for a far more flexible service and a considerably faster turnaround. We can now meet customers’ bespoke requirements and specific tolerances, regardless of whether it is non-standard or has a slightly different fit.”

The new Bore and Keyway Machining Service joins Brammer Buck & Hickman’s range of engineering services which include specialist workshop, gearbox repair and other engineering services geared towards saving customers money.
