  • By means of the very latest machine tools, be that three, four or five axis milling machines or advanced turn/mill lathes, FGP has a sustained history supporting all our customer requests from a basic turned part to the most complex prismatic milled part. Working with our customers we have taken the cast to hog out solution to the next level reducing the need for long lead time cast parts due to their complexity, over to a make from solid options reducing lead time and increasing yield.

    FGP offers an automation solution with a 13 metre 145 pallet robotic cell, using the full potential of the machine tools technology from a basic tool breakage/wear detection linked in to the automation control system to in process spindle nose probing we run a true lights out 24-7 operation.

    Machining roles at FGP are exciting fast paced and never boring. The complexity of parts produced means no two days are the same.

  • Stores
    Stores is one of the beginning process within FGP. Ensuring material is correct and in place ready for production is a vital factor within this section. Need the tooling for the job? Well stores is the place to go!

    Packing and Dispatch
    Packing is just as important as the other sections within FGP. This section is not just packing boxes! There are many vital customer requirements such as oil coatings, oxygen awareness and re-usable pack- aging that are adhered to. Programming the auto bagger is a skill in itself, and stock control and a knowledge on treatments is also an im- portant part of the dispatch processes. Packing is important within FGP as perfect parts mean properly protected parts, delivered on time!
