Company Information

UFO Engineering is a contract precision engineering manufacturer. The company is part of UFO and has many years of experience in CAD/CAM manufacture of components for lighting systems.

The division was created to satisfy the demand for precision hand and CNC machining of small to medium sized metal parts typically used in the lighting industry, but we can serve the engineering needs of many industry sectors.

We specialise in small, medium or large volumes of components in aluminium, stainless steel and brass and can offer finishing to your specification.

Currently home to over £2.5 million of CAD/CAM and CNC milling and turning technology, an ongoing program of investment in state of the art manufacturing technology ensures that we have the capability to exceed the most stringent quality requirements.

CNC Production

CNC production is the quickest, most accurate and most cost-effective method of producing medium to large batches of identical parts.
Using an efficient workflow for design and to programme work through production allows us to offer a competitive cost and turnaround on your products while maintaining revision accuracy and quality.

CNC Turning & Milling

Our CNC turning capabilities are second to none due to the large investment we have made in CNC machine tools and CAM software.
On our Swiss type CNC automatics we can manufacture straight turned components or more intricate geometrical shapes by utilising driven tooling integral to the lathe.

Fabrication & Assembly

We have the capabilities and personnel to fabricate and assemble many items from small luminaire fittings to large fixtures.
We can make parts from small simple brackets to machine frames. Working with sheet and bar metals, tubes, boards, laminates and plastics to create your finished goods ready for packaging and sale.

Prototyping & Manual Machining

Having spent many years serving the needs of UFO by providing custom one-off and small batch production runs, our manual machining department is used to providing quick turnaround on milled, drilled and tapped quality components in a number of engineering materials.
We offer a rapid prototyping service, where small to medium sized components can be quickly produced in plastic, in our 3D printer.

Powdercoating

We offer powder coating for a wide variety of components in a variety of shapes and sizes. Our trained finishing personnel and modern spray booths ensure a first class finish every time.
We have an electrostatic corona charge system for powder coating which can give a finished thickness of 30µm to over 70µm on aluminium, stainless steel, brass or galvanised material. We can accommodate up to a maximum component size of 800mm x 800mm x 4000mm in our large oven.
