Frequently asked questions

What is the quickest lead time you can offer for CNC machining?

For small scale CNC projects in Al6061 we can manufacture in as little as 2 days as we have the material readily available in-house.

How do I get a quote?

The quickest way is to fill out our online quote form. Alternatively, if you would like to discuss your project before submitting a quote, feel free to email our engineers at team@get-it-made.co.uk.

How long does it take to get a quote?

For most projects we aim to get a quote back to you within 24h. However, if you submit a quote in the morning we can sometimes provide a quote the same day. Injection moulding is the exemption to this as and will take more than 24h to quote.

How much thickness does anodising add?

Type II is the standard variation of anodising and clear coatings typically have a thickness of 5-15 μm and coloured/dyed coatings 10-25 μm.

Type III anodising also known as 'hard anodising’ can have a thickness of 20-80 μm.

A good design guideline to follow is that 50% of the anodic coating is below the original surface and 50% is above. Therefore, a 12 μm coating would increase the part thickness by 6 μm.

What thread specification can you work with?

ISO metric threads (M3, M6, etc), BSPT, BSP, UNF

Can you provide Optical Emission Spectrometry?

Yes, we can provide Optical Emission Spectrometry analysis as an additional service. We send photos of the material testing and the results of the chemical analysis. This does usually add a few days to the lead time and a small additional cost.
