Highly Experienced Engineers

By outsourcing your Machining & Fabrication to us you have the benefit of 24/7 service & support when you really need it. With over 10 years experience in the Drive & Power Transmission Industry, we can quickly find the right people and source the right product for your requirements.


Our highly experienced Precision Engineers can give Manual and Precision  Turning Services to industries and individuals from small to large amounts. Our skilled machinists have experience in working with various materials from Steels, Titanium, Aluminium, Aluminium Bronze and Plastics to Exotic Provisions such as Inconel and Beryllium.


Our facility allows for external and internal honing as required by any hydraulic cylinder manufacturing company. Honing any tube to a fine, smooth finish will give a signature “crosshatch” where the surface was honed. Welding cylinder tubes often result in distortion of the material and we offer a hone after-weld service, at no extra cost, where our customers are supplied with honed or unhoned material, and after machining and welding the material, it is returned to Alpha Drives Engineering for the final honing process. This ensures the best possible tolerances on welded cylinders.


Alpha Drives engineers will lay out our boring equipment to fit within the space constraints of any given job site, and work with customer representatives to identify and work around any obstructions that may be in the way. Engineers also design repair sleeves if necessary and order material


For a key to function, the shaft and rotating machine element must have a keyway and a keyseat. There are three main types of keys: Sunk, Saddle, and Tangent Round, and Spline keys. We have the capabilities to do them all with precision and speed.


Whatever your requirements for prototype, small batch or mass production precision slotted tubes, when the most competitive price and next day delivery (dependent on volume) is essential, Alpha Drives Engineering is the name to remember.
