Precision Engineering

Established in 1997 BSD Precision Engineering, sited adjacent to BSD Performance in Eye, on the outskirts of Peterborough is one of Cambridgeshire’s best kept machine-shop secrets.

For a relatively small shop the Plant List and Capacities of BSD Precision Engineering is impressive, as is the skillset of our engineers; here you’ll find a broad and somewhat unique range of machines and abilities under one roof. Specialties include bespoke gear cutting and chain wheel production for a wide variety of industrial applications, and we’re happy to provide solutions to problems that can’t be solved with off-the-shelf parts.

Working mostly as a sub-contractor, to customer-supplied engineering drawings – although we also offer a full design and draughting service – BSD Precision Engineering employs a range of gear cutting machinery including Drummond 2A and 3A Maxicut Shapers and Fouter Hobbing machine for large capacity gears. We can Broach and Slot keyways into any gear up to a maximum size of 25mm, and keyway shafts up to 50mm.

The other machinery on site includes conventional lathes and mills, and cylindrical and surface grinders. A Mazak QT15 CNC lathe is used for predominately small-diameter bar, while the Mazak Nexus250-2 lathe works the larger diameter, longer bar that comes through the shop. The Haas VF3 CNC vertical mill has proved an extremely efficient and adaptable machine and can generate almost any shape required; it’s also perfect for large-volume drilling and tapping of blocks in multiples.

Our aim is to help our customers with the production of competitively priced engineering parts and assemblies, within specified time-scales, and to specific standards of quality.
