Client: Large Scale Fabricator
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.
Quick turnaround, and repair saved costly replacement. Both the General Manager and the Vessel Superintendent were very pleased with the result.
