ASB Headquarters (Wynyard Quarter) - Thermosash

Late in 2012, CNC Machining received the contract to provide Stainless Steel clamps for the architecturally designed facade of the brand new ASB Building on Auckland's waterfront. With a nearing deadline combined with the sheer volume of components required, this was one of CNC Machining's biggest challenges to date.

The main challenge for us was the complex nature of the variations required. Each individual part had up to 7 angles, all in relation to each other and with 40 variations, that took a lot of programming! We were required to take the part from design stage to programming , setting and machining. The hard part didn't stop there, as the customer needed the parts in short runs, machines were being re-set every few hours with new variations. All of our staff picked up many new skills as the difficult project progressed. By introducing 24 hour shifts and investigation of new tools and tooling techniques, we were able to meet all of the customers requirements.

Over 20,000 components later and we are all very proud to have been a part of what is sure to become one of Auckland Down Town's most talked about structures.

CNC Machining have been a long term component supplier to Quadbeam Technologies Ltd. The quality of finish and repeatable high process standards means that we are able to continue to supply quality products meeting international standards to the world.

Geoff Letcher Director at Quadbeam Technologies

We certainly liked the effort with the continuous improvement Karl, that will serve the company, workers and customers well. From a customer perspective the perception of quality, value and reliability are IMHO attached to how the company is presented, and even though you still have lots to do it is possible to see that the company is going to end up looking a lot more professional and organized.

The windows at the front of the building and lit sign also speak volumes about attention to detail. It is nice and light within the factory space, well laid out and is now 'airy' compared to the previous building. The process around quality control at least looks and sounds impressive and gives the impression of quality.

Big improvement Karl. On the road to what we all imagine a state of the art machine shop should look and act like. Will be interested to see it in a years time.

CNC are a supplier we can just trust
