Metalock's Fully Equipped Engineering Workshop

Machine shop services Machine shop services

When a traditional workshop offers the most appropriate solution to your needs, we operate a fully equipped engineering tool room and repair facility at our head office in Coventry – in the traditional heartland of British engineering expertise.

Traditional values and the latest workshop techniques

The values and attention to detail may be traditional, but the equipment and ongoing staff training at our Prologis Park facility is the latest – as befits the demands that you place upon us.

When you entrust specialised work to our machine shop, highly skilled engineers work wonders on smaller items of plant and machinery. As with all our services, whether on-site or in the workshop, you can expect accurate machining, the lowest possible lead times and excellent value for money. And of course, with each job you entrust to us, comes full access to our unparalleled wealth of engineering skills and experience.

In association with the workshop, we also do specialist welding repairs on plant and equipment using all the main welding techniques.

Metalock in action

When the Quainton Railway Society, in Buckinghamshire, UK, needed major repairs on a 1930s steam tank engine, the Metalock machine shop was an obvious choice for precision cylinder reboring, and the manufacture and installation of two new cylinder liners.

The work on Thomas the Tank Engine was preceded by our usual thorough survey. We then dismantled the cylinder block, removed and remachined the engine’s pistons, and fitted new piston rings. Next, we rebored both cylinders and manufactured new cylinder liners before shrink-fitting them into position. Back in action with minimal disruption to the Society’s operations, Thomas now has a new lease of life and is set to go on delighting children of all ages for years.
