SUPPLIER APPROVAL CATEGORY 4

MACHINE ENGINEERING USING CNC ALESA-MONTI MACHINE

Hotchkiss Engineering Group are very pleased to have been approved as a Category 4 Supplier to the oil and gas industries.

Having been recommended to Heatric - part of the international Meggitt Group - our engineers were able to mill their stainless steel heat exchanger cores using the CNC Alesa-Monti machine. After machining the outside welds at our large capacity workshop in Kent, the blocks were then passed to Heatric to be welded together.

This field of machine engineering has vast potential for the Hotchkiss Group, as diffusion bonded heat exchangers are used throughout the upstream hydrocarbon processing, petrochemical, and refining industries in worldwide projects.

Group Director Tom Sisley commented that he was pleased to discover further capabilities for the CNC Alesa-Monti machine.

"Being awarded Supplier Approval Category 4 means that we can now quote for and contribute to projects for the entire Meggitt Group. We are delighted that Heatric were recommended to come to us, and we look forward to working with them again."
