Our Machine Shop Capabilites

Machining Equipment: Lathes, Milling, EDM Wirecutting

At our Westurn Engineering machine shop we provide a variety of precision CNC machining services that includes milling, turning, and EDM wire cutting.  

Since commencing operations nearly 20 years ago, Westurn has favoured Okuma CNC machines for their reliability and industry-leading features. Now with 11 CNC machines – including one of the largest EDM wire-cutting machines in the state – we are constantly looking for ways to expand our capabilities through further equipment investment.

Our CNC machining services are available for iterative design and development phases with quick turnaround and consistency in timelines and quality. CNC Turning and CNC Milling are designed to achieve specific aims in manufacturing from jigs and fixtures to parts with cylindrical properties, holes, slots and grooves.

3D Design and CAM

Westurn can assist with all your mechanical design, digital prototyping, 3D modelling, and engineering drawing needs.

Reverse Engineering is the process of recreating an object by working backwards from the finished part. Parts are dimensionally measured, fits and tolerances are matched, and material properties recorded. A fully featured parametric 3D CAD model is created, meaning parts can easily be modified to suit your requirements.

3D Mechanical Drafting: As well as 3D modelling physical items, we can create CAD models of any part from existing drawings, from basic napkin sketches or even from the vision in your head. Our team is highly skilled in solid modelling, including the creation of fully-featured mechanical assemblies. Our 3D CAD modelling abilities, combined with our manufacturing facilities, allow us to easily prototype parts digitally, and progress to a finished part very quickly.

Our Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) software allows us to transfer 3D models straight to manufacturing. CAM programming significantly increases the speed of machine programming and allows for quick manufacture of complex parts, meaning reduced costs and lead-times for the customer compared to traditional methods.

Manufacturing Facilities

Westurn has a strong history of sustained investment in state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment; in the health, wellbeing and training of our staff; and in the facilities from which we operate.
 
In 2010, after rapidly outgrowing two previous workshops, Westurn commissioned the build of our current ~850m2 facility. This facility has allowed us to continue increasing our capabilities and throughput over the last decade.
 
Moving forward from 2020, we are looking to future-proof the business through further expansion into another new, purpose built facility. We are well underway in designing this facility, and are looking forward to expected completion some time in 2021.
