Quality is paramount at JKE EngineeringKings Langley-based sub-contractor JK Engineering (JKE) has invested in a component-washing system to ensure that it can meet the exacting cleanliness standards of its clients in the Formula One and medical-component sectors.

The company, which has AS9100 and ISO9001 certification, has purchased a MecWash Midi system that is suitable for very delicate components and high-quality surface finishes.

Max Swinbourne, JKE’s (www.jk-engineering.co.uk) commercial manager, said: “The MecWash system perfectly represented our company ethos; we love the fact that it is essentially automated.

“We looked into alternative systems, where the labour demands were quite extensive, but we saw little value in having an employee dedicated to parts washing.”

John Pattison, managing director of MecWash Systems, said: “Companies like JKE are fully aware of the need to meet the exacting standards of those in high-performance sectors such as motor-sport, medical and aerospace.

"If the anticipated growth in global markets materialises this year, then the sub-contractors who succeed in winning new orders will be those able to commit to the highest quality standards.

“We have seen the levels of cleanliness demanded by some contracts for precision-engineered components increase by up to 50% over the past year.

“This is more than achievable, while maintaining profitability and even reducing costs, if you use the right technology.”
