Work that we have done on that include, bushings, base plates and turbines for the hydro industry, Orbiter gear, top plates vacuum chambers, drum assemblies for the solar and defense industry, rotors, cyclone and classifier assemblies for the military powder industry, trunnions, wear plates, dam parts for the US Army, chambers for the turbine industry, plates for the shipyard industry, yu cylinder, peripheral walls, base plates for the metal separation industry, drum assemblies, hinges for the environmental engineering industry, antenna mounts for the electric industry and blocker forgings for the mining industry.
The Berthiez Vertical Turret Lathe can turn up to 142’’. Work that we have done on the Berthiez includes timing crowns, distributor assembly, dryer heads for the metal refining and chemical processing industries, Gear Housing, top plate and cone hoppers for the food processing and pharmaceutical industry, face plates for coil winding industry, and drum assembly for the environmental industry.
The Bullard Boring Machine has a 36’’ swing with 2 axis digital readout. Machining done on this includes Rotary valves, bottom plates, distributor manifolds, peripheral walls, timing crown, ss cyclones, high hats, and antenna poles among many other things.
We have a full line of machining equipment to supplement the major equipment mentioned above.
We have up to a 15-ton overhead crane in our machine shop.
We can provide patterns and machined castings in steel, cast iron, bronze, aluminum, ni-hard, ni-resist, stainless and many other alloys. We can supply the casting that you need or use your casting to be machined to your specification.
We recognize the importance of maintaining the highest quality standards found in the industry as well as being price competitive.
