Our Services

Toolmakers & Precision Engineers

Our core disciplines are General Machining and CNC Milling, and with over 70 years’ experience, Cyril Minns has achieved mastery of all aspects of this craft. We’re also known to enjoy a bit of Jig Boring and Turning when we get the chance.

We’re happy to provide on-site work for your small tooling repairs like Jig Nursing where moving equipment doesn’t make sense. Although we specialise in unique, bespoke pieces, we do have the capacity for small batch work.

Get in touch to discuss our capacity and turnaround.

We machine everything from washers to elements that have been to space.

Our client list is mostly involved in the aerospace sector. Over the years we have crafted components for many major airframes be it critical rotor hub components or pilot seating.

We also work with companies in other sectors and universities. For example, we’ve provided cutting-edge work to support companies investing in plasma technologies to the mechanisms for Flight & F1 simulators with universities.

Whether you have aerospace machining requirement, an R&D problem, start-up tooling requirements; talk to us about the solution.

We love R&D

Cyril Minns is often called upon to work with start-ups in facilitating their R&D with test pieces and proof of concept work.

We have unique perspectives on engineering problems, for example we’ve worked on well-known commercial aircraft to develop unique tooling to quickly extract troublesome parts from landing gear, correct, segment and reinsert them.

Engineering Heritage insight

At Cyril Minns we have a tradition of handing down knowledge through our long running apprenticing scheme. As a result, Cyril Minns holds a great wealth of machining knowledge within the business and it gives us a unique perspective on heritage engineering projects. We’ve built spare parts for Britain’s remaining working steam ships, museum piece lunar module components and Concorde parts for heritage display.
