Project

CAROUSEL TURNTABLE 27.01.17

Client: Large Scale Fabricator

Challenge:
We have worked with various critical components situated

onboard vessels such as moving parts, carousels, flanges,

bearing housings, manway doors / frames, Kelly bottle

threads, motor pads. On this case, the turntable holding the

carousel had developed high spots and required machining.



Component was 9 metres diameter and 200mm thick,  the machine had to be surface location, component to be machined flat to 0.5mm, all within one week of the call.

How Challenge Was Addressed:
We transported our R10000 machine to A&P Tyne and located

it onto the surface. Using an MH200 Milling head, we were able

to reach the required tolerance.

Value Added:
Quick turnaround, and repair saved costly replacement.

Both the General Manager and

the Vessel Superintendent were very pleased with the result.
