Precision Engineers & Thread Rolling Specialists

Precision Engineering Since 1978

At the beginning of the last century Thos. F Dobson started a precision engineering business in Blackburn based on the principal “only the best is good enough” and when the Dobson and Beaumont families merged their engineering interests in 1978 and quickly doubled their joint capacity, the success of their enterprise owed much to the long established reputation for excellence of product and integrity in all dealings earned by previous generations of directors and employees.

For over fifty years thread rolling has been a key element in our operations, and the current generation of products “hold together” Grand Prix racing cars, hospital scanners, power station generators and suspension bridges. Our products range in diameter from 3mm to 100mm, and confident that our objectives will be achieved through the training, qualification and commitment of our staff, and the sophistication of our capacity to inspect materials, precision machine and form roll components, we will continue to believe in the 21st century that only the best is good enough.

Our Products

Dobson and Beaumont specialise in the manufacture of roll threaded studs and bolts in high tensile alloys and stainless steels in sizes from 3mm to 100mm diameter and in any standard or non-standard thread form.

A large proportion of our output goes into power generation plant in the form of big end bolts, cylinder head and main bearing studs. We are approved suppliers of these components to Rolls Royce Power Engineering, 
MAN B & W Alstom Engines and Allen Steam Turbines.

Another area of our expertise is the manufacture of small critical fasteners in alloy steels and titanium alloys for the racing car industry where the utmost precision and fast turn round are essential.

Our Services

We offer high precision CNC machining facilities for general engineering components; our centreless grinding department offers plunge and throughfeed grinding between 3mm and 100mm diameter, and our thread rolling department can offer sub-contract plunge and throughfeed thread rolling between 3mm and 100mm diameter in most thread profiles in industrial use.

These services are backed by a comprehensive in-house calibration and thread measuring facility with measurements traceable to national standards.

In addition we offer non-destructive testing in Brinell hardness, ultrasonic examination, and magnetic particle testing to national and international standards

Where independent or third party witness testing are required we arrange this with fully accredited establishments. Where sub-contract heat treatment or plating is required we arrange for this to be done by approved sources.

We are happy to quote for any quantity from a one-off to large batches, and stock significant quantities of mill-certificated materials to cater for shorter delivery times.
