As a trusted partner in solution design and engineering our aims are your aims to improve process reliability and performance, reduce costs and provide a competitive advantage. Think of James Walker as an extension of your own resources and tap into over 140 years of engineering and materials science knowledge and expertise.
Our focus is on offering differentiation through performance products and systems which utilise our advanced materials technology and engineering competencies. Whilst a few of our competitors may be able to match our facilities - and it is a very few - none can match our people, their expertise, knowledge and experience. It is these people that will add the value your business is seeking.
Perfection as a starting point
From the highly experienced eye of a press operator to the examination skills of manual inspection or the electronic scrutiny of the latest automated inspection machinery, our philosophy is the same at every point of the production process - 'Zero defects'. When designing and manufacturing bespoke components for critical applications only perfection is acceptable because we know that the business, environmental and potentially human cost of failure in operation is too great.
Taking into account the proposed physical environment, performance and life expectation requirements along with the initial component design, our material scientists are able to test a range of the most suitable materials to determine the best possible choice. If necessary the team has the expertise and in-house capabilities to adjust formulations or ultimately formulate new compounds in order to optimise the material selection.
Our materials science, engineering and production processes are constantly evolving and if developments in any of these areas can improve a product's performance, our customer will be the first to know.
Our seals and components don't work in isolation - their interaction with housings, shafts and other components is critical to overall performance. The solution may therefore often lie in changes that can be made to those other components and it is here that James Walker's experience comes to the fore. Major improvements in performance and reliability are often achieved through minor re-engineering suggestions from our design teams.
Comprehensive ranges of high performance products covering sealing and bolting applications for every industry.
Working in partnership with our customers to extract the best possible performance and reliability from their plant and equipment.
Our expertise in elastomer compounding, thermoplastics formulation, metal machining and tension control bolting plays a part in the continuing story of global industrial development.
