Attica – Precision Micro Components & Assemblies
Attica Components designs and manufactures a unique range of miniature components and assemblies made from stainless steels and a wide range of special and exotic metals.
Our component range includes precision tubes and needles, CNC miniature machined parts, wire-forms and laser-cut foils. From these we manufacture assemblies by using laser welding and other micro-welding and brazing techniques.
We offer a design consultancy service which guides customers through available processes and manufacturability of items before launching full-scale production.
We meet customers' requirements from first concept, through prototypes to pilot- and full-scale production, always weighing the economic and technical benefits from using alternative designs and manufacturing processes.
Laser Micro Welding
Laser welding is a discrete process for joining two metal components, although filler material can also be used.
Laser pulses are used to melt metals on each surface to be joined. Re-solidification results in the creation of a stable join.
For effective laser micro-welding the two surfaces need to be in contact with each other.
We can laser cut tube, using our laser cutting services, with outside diameters from 0.4mm to 20.0mm.
This is an economical method of making tube components which have several features such as holes, slots & shaped ends.
Stainless steel and superelastic nitinol tubes can be laser cut, producing special needles, stents, probes and other end products.
Swiss-Type CNC Machining
Attica supplies CNC precision parts made by on our Swiss-type sliding head machinery from a wide variety of materials.
This includes 17-4 PH stainless steel, 316 stainless steel, nickel silver, brass and copper alloys.
Nickel alloys including Inconel, Kovar & Hastelloy are also machined.
Tube Forms & Manipulation
Specialist tooling is developed by Attica to swage, flare, bend and cut tube to our customers’ designs.
Stainless steel and nickel alloys are chosen for their malleability, strength, magnetic and thermal properties.
These are used as parts of end products such as heat exchangers, ink-jet assemblies, drug-delivery systems, sensors and others.
Attica Components began operations in Reading, UK in 1994 as a supplier of special metal tube components and vacuum brazed assemblies to the aerospace and precision instrument sector. The Founder is Jim Fife, who still manages the Company.
Attica operates today out of purpose-built premises near Witney, Oxon, to which it moved in 2001. We continue to specialise in miniature tubular components, including cutting, forming and welding them.
