Power transmission is a critical infrastructure. The successful installation, maintenance and repair of these systems are essential for the economy.
Power transmission can take many forms and we specialise in the supply of essential power transmission components manufactured from aluminium, titanium and copper. These parts are used within high-voltage systems, where dimensional tolerances and surface finishing are critical.
Our CAD/CAM capabilities linked to our modern CNC machines allows us to machine complicated profiles which are often required for the successful transfer of high-voltage electricity.
Our Power Transmission Services
We manufacture complex assemblies which are used within safety critical equipment found within power substations. We can offer heat treatment to relieve stresses and ensure fabrication can meet the tolerances demanded in the power transmission sector.
We supply complex machined parts and power transmission components used to transfer high-voltage electricity. We have extensive experience in CNC machining materials including aluminium, copper, and brass.
Many high-voltage applications (gas-insulated switchgear) require the use of pressurised gas systems. We can supply pressure and NDT-tested power transmission components for this application.

A customer approached Washington Components with the need to manufacture several parts, required for the repair of a critical electrical system. The challenge was to source materials, manufacture and deliver as soon as possible, to minimise disruption to the electrical system in question.
Washington Components was able to draw raw material from stock and start CNC machining within hours. Round-the-clock production was enabled and all parts were fully machined and ready for delivery within 48 hours. Our ability to be flexible and react to customer demands is one of our key strengths.
The level of quality offered by Washington Components is first-class. Their commitment to continuous improvement is evident; the new temperature-controlled inspection facility is impressive
