About Covapex Engineering

CovAPEX Engineering Ltd was founded in 2003 by a group of experienced production manufacturing engineers. We are proud of over 50 years' combined experience in the machining of various grades of ferrous and aluminium castings for the automotive and associated industries. Specialising in the machining of high precision turbocharger components, heat exchanger components, intake and exhaust manifolds and gearbox housings, we are able to offer a full range of services from the initial prototype and development stages, through to production levels with the ability to provide full PPAP documentation wherever required. This would typically include process flow and control plan documentation, process FMEA, and full dimensional reports on a given sample batch.

Our experience and abilities are backed up with full ISO9001:2008 accreditation which of course is ongoing. This ensures that our systems and procedures are kept up to date, that our continuous improvement ethics are fully employed, and that our attention to customer requirement is second to none. We believe that communication and reaction are important. For this reason our engineers are always ready to discuss urgent modifications and amendments to early development drawings, and will assist in every way possible to ensure that the customer will receive exactly what he needs, both in terms of product quality and delivery deadlines.

Tool Room
Here at CovAPEX Engineering we believe that a sturdy capable process begins with sturdy reliable workholding.

Experience has shown us the effects clamping forces, fixture flex, centrifuge, and machining forces have on the repeatability and accuracy of a process. For this reason, all jigs and fixtures are designed and built here in our dedicated toolroom by skilled engineers, backed up by fully detailed AutoCAD drawings for records and duplication where necessary.

This not only ensures the quality and capability of the product, but significantly reduces the price and lead-times of fixturing for our customer. Our toolroom is also employed for in-house machine maintenance and gauge making. This reduces expensive production downtime and enables us to produce special purpose dedicated gauging equipment at a fraction of the cost of outside sourcing.

Quality is paramount. We understand the importance of quality assurance and customer confidence. It is our ethic that if a process is sturdy, and the necessary controls are in place, then the millionth part off will be of as high a quality as the first.

Here at CovAPEX Engineering we have strict quality procedures in place. Using our own in-house gauge calibration system and our independently calibrated 3D CMM we can control and monitor the quality of our products accurately and efficiently.

These tools, coupled with the use of modern Poka-Yoke principles on our shop floor, enable us to detect and isolate potential defective parts instantly and effectively, causing minimal disruption to production targets or our customers.

Production Area
Our production area consists of numerous vertical and horizontal 4 axis CNC machining centres and CNC lathes as well as conventional machines. Our horizontal machines utilise multi-pallet changers which means a product changeover takes minutes to perform with the confidence that the first part off will be a good part. We also employ Renishaw probing technology where necessary to update offset co-ordinates with every load. Wherever possible we build Poka-Yoke devices into our fixtures which automatically detect undersize / oversize features, missed operations, and potential misload situations.

Our operators are trained on every operation required, and are supervised for a period of time until we are confident that the individual has a full understanding of his product, processes and gauges.
