Repetition engineering utilises computer programmed machining equipment to efficiently produce large runs of identical parts. This reduces production time and cost per part. Companies that outsource the production of repetition engineering components then have more time available to focus on the various other aspects of operating and growing their business, while having confidence that components will be delivered to the exacting standard required.
Various types of automated high precision Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machinery are used in repetition engineering. Highly skilled engineers program these machines to perform the various shaping operations required to produce the desired component. Machining processes that may be programmed into the CNC machinery include turning, drilling, broaching and milling. Once programming is complete the machinery runs in a continuous and automatic process to produce the required number of components. While in practice there is no minimum run quantity for repetition engineering, due to the setup time and cost involved, the larger the production run the lower the cost per part.
In repetition engineering components can be produced from a range of raw materials. Typical materials include stainless or mild steel, copper and brass, to plastics, but other more specialised materials can also be used. The components are machined from raw material bar stock, which is often round bar or tube, however multi-axis machining is also capable of working with or other shapes of raw material stock such as square, hexagonal and others. This all depends on the part to be produced. Each CNC machine is equipped with a range of tools which can be automatically and precisely controlled in three dimensions to shape the part as required. The multi-axis CNC equipment is capable of producing a wide variety of components, ranging from relatively simple parts to much more intricate, complex parts, both small and large.

Repetition engineering services are used across a vast range of industries from the production of automotive components to parts for household appliances and furniture to pump and pipe fittings and many more. Whenever there is a need for the production of many identical parts, repetition engineering can be applied to improve production efficiency. By applying state of the art automated manufacturing processes to batch produce high quality, high precision components to the mutual benefit of client and vendor.
