Our organisation is over 40 years old and has a clear track-record of designing and developing an impressive list of automotive engineering solution over that long period. Today we support business clients with engineering consultancy design, prototype manufacture and build, testing and evaluation services. This is backed up with capability in scanning, 3D printing, CNC machining, dynamometer test facilities, and workshop assembly and maintenance services.
Recent work has varied from hybrid drive and energy recovery systems, to prototype axle widening, to redesign and optimisation of inlet manifolds with innovative CNC port-shaping, and to significant enhancement of charge-cooling efficiency. Clients include OEM and 1st and 2nd tier suppliers, Automotive R&D companies, Classic Car restoration and modification specialist, and Motorsport teams and suppliers.
We are a small organisation which limits the types of projects we can take on. Some large organisations can address major projects, but their systems make their response, while usually thorough, rather slow and relatively expensive. We have dealt with many smaller projects quickly, on short lead-times, and at lower cost. Our work is valued for our ability to product a timely response without heavy investment.
Business-to-Business projects are very often confidential, our range of commercial products, viewable elsewhere on our website is the best indication we can give of our expertise.
We have experienced personnel for engine assembly and test. We have computer controlled, correctly calibrated dynamometer test facilities, in house. We have on-site facilities for CAD design, machining, balancing, honing, clean assembly, and much more. Recent work has included projects as varied as the detail development and initial test of a new proposal in engine remanufacture, to the extensive analysis of a production tolerance/quality issue causing an NVH problem.
The experience of our staff has been instrumental in optimising design and manufacturing a surprising range of components. The ability to rapidly produce a working prototype for initial feasibility and evaluation studies has cut both cost and delay from our clients’ projects. Scanning, 3D printing, machining, fabrication and assembly facilities support the engineering design capability to provide a one-stop, in-house solution.
3D CAD design. Our staff understand whole vehicles and bring their wide experience to bear in automotive engineering CAD work.
Multi-camera laser scanning provides excellent surface capture capability for components and space/packaging evaluation. Analysis and CAD-import software provides accessible data.
This technology is now well-known for the ability to make prototype parts for visualisation and temporary test facilitation. In some cases, these printed items can be good enough for finished production parts. Having these in-house facilities allows our engineers to work with clients in a cost effective manner without incurring excessive tooling costs.
Accomplished engineers working closely with skilled machinists and direct access to modern 1 m travel 4-axis equipment provides us with excellent capability to accelerate clients’ projects.
Specialist engine development facilities
In addition to CNC machining we have in-house facilities for balancing rotating and reciprocating components, boring and honing machines, hand-grinding equipment for detail shaping and smoothing of ports or other features. Full assembly and test facilities to complete a working engine.
Both Industry and retail customers come to us for dynamometer test work. The demands of confidentiality can limit the flexibility of our service, but we aim to provide short lead times and efficient, practical solutions. Short sign-off tests or long-term durability tests can be accommodated. For private clients, we commonly provide one-off engine set-up and calibration services.
Perfect for the restoration business, Aqua-Blasting is a metal cleaning and finishing process which produces a very fine matt finish. Our machine is set up with the correct medium to clean aluminium components, but can be used on iron or steel with good results. The image shows an aluminium Porsche cooling fan before and after treatment. Parts for cleaning must first be cleaned of all loose material, and the Aqua-Blast process is used to remove the more stubborn dirt, stains, and paint marks. Trade and retail enquiries are welcome.
JE enhances, tunes and upgrades a variety of Jaguar Land Rover, Ford, Marcos, Morgan, Range Rover Classic, TVR and Westfield vehicles, for road and motorsport, and provides consultancy and feasibility study to the automotive industry.
