Electronics

Britain has a mighty history in electronics and we are proud to serve many successful companies across this industry. For over 30 years we have provided equipment and components to our customers in this field ranging from simple machines parts to complex fabricated housing and automated production machinery.

Our recent acquisition of Multex had added a new product range of high quality Testing Fixtures to our portfolio. Since 1991 Multex have supplied customers with Test Equipment ranging from simple kits to advanced automated pneumatic systems to customers across the UK and as far afield as the USA and India.

Automation Projects

Almond Engineering has a long history of successful automation projects across a wide variety of industries. Recent projects include automating beer barrel handling, automated checking of medical vials labelling and a conveyor system for small high volume medical manufacturing. The common factor is a close working relationship with the customers engineering teams.

Each of these projects was lead by a design engineer from our team and included the fabrication, mechanical component manufacture and control/electrical elements.

Semiconductor

Scotland has a vibrant semiconductor industry with a wide range of companies supporting customers all across the globe.  Almond Engineering is very proud to be part of this success story.

We have been supporting customers is the semiconductor sector for many years.  In the exciting days of Silicon Glen our biggest customers were NEC, Lexmark and Motorola; when they left Scotland we were fortunate that many of the expert engineers continued to use us in their next role.

Our experienced Design team are very familiar with the exacting standards required in this industry; typical materials include high performance plastics, anodised aluminium, and static dissipative materials.

Recent projects have included:

  • Routine Consumable parts
  • Reverse engineering of a series of flow chambers
  • Design and manufacture of a range of vacuum chucks
  • Robot tables
  • Reverse engineering of shipping brackets
  • Conversion kits (from 4″ up to 8″)
  • Test equipment
  • Wafer handling equipment in high performance plastics and anodised aluminium, Including:
    • Wafer combs
    • Vacuum wands
    • Retaining rings
    • Wear guides
    • Flat finders
    • Wafer boats

Aerospace & Defence

Aerospace and defence machining is amongst the more demanding disciplines, with tight tolerances and short delivery times.

Our most frequent projects are:

  • Production equipment, typically for a clean room environment
  • jigs & fixtures
  • test  equipment
  • prototypes
  • and small to medium sized production runs

Our quality system (certified to ISO 9001) ensures we strictly maintain the required standards and have the correct records to prove it.

Food, Drink & Packaging

This is a massively successful sector in Scotland and many Scottish Products are recognised worldwide.  We have a wide customer base across the sector with many longstanding relationships.  Our in house design team has been critical to success in this area, cooperating closely with the customers engineering teams on a wide variety of fabrication and precision engineering projects including:

  • Production equipment
  • Health and Safety guarding
  • Consumables
  • Reverse engineering spare parts
  • On-site repairs
