Flange Facing

AX012 Mount Flange Facer is designed to machine full faced, raised face and grooved flanges of up to 300mm (11.75") in diameter. A variety of surface finishes ranging from 1.6Ra to 6.3Ra when turning and 0.8Ra when polishing can be achieved.

 

AX630 ID Mount Flange Facer is designed to machine flange faces from 153mm (6") to 762mm (30") in diameter with a grip depth of 153mm (6") to 610mm (24"). A variety of surface finishes ranging from 1.6Ra to 6.3Ra when turning and 0.8Ra when polishing can be achieved.

 

AX2872 ID Mount Flange Facer is designed to machine flange faces from 609mm (24") to 1,829mm (72") in diameter with a grip depth of 711mm (28") to 1,727mm (68").  A variety of surface finishes ranging from 1.6Ra to 6.3Ra when turning and 0.8Ra to 1.6Ra when polishing can be achieved.

 

The above mentioned Flange Facing Machines can produce a 'Gramaphone' finish, cut 'O' ring grooves, vertical grooves, 'V' grooves and alternatively lens ring facings (AX012 and AX630 ID Mount Flange Facers).

Milling

The FM044 Milling Machine is designed to machine heat exchanger caps, tube sheets, key ways, grooves and divider plates. The machine can be used in either a vertical or horizontal milling position. The overall length of the Milling Rail is 1,320mm (52") with a maximum height of 660mm (26").

Tyre Grinding

Our grinding services provides a quick and efficient method for the in-situ renewal of the surface finishes of large diameter tyres on rotating plants such as rotary kilns, driers and Yankee driers in the Paper Industry. In most cases Tyre Grinding can be done while the plant is still in commission.

Drilling

We have a variety of Drilling Machines driven by either 220V power supply or pneumatic air supply, depending on the machine. These machines are either hand held, magnetically mounted or secured to the work piece with a mounting plate and fasteners. Holes that are too big will be drilled as big as possible and fly cut to size.

Line Boring

The Line Boring Machine has a diameter range from 50mm (2") to 500mm (20"), boring strokes of up to 360mm (14"). Feed and rotational directions are reversible. Various sizes of boring bars and tool heads can be combined for a variety of applications. A minimum clearance of 1,100mm is required to mount the rotational drive unit and axial feed unit.

Shaft Key Cutting

The KM65 Key Mill is a portable milling machine for on-site key ways and other small milling applications. The machine is designed for clamping on a shaft with its unique self-aligning, self-centering V-base. The key mill clamps onto shafts with a minimum diameter of 50mm and maximum diamtere of 250mm.

Journal Turning

This machine is specifically designed for re-turning large diameter shafts and roll journals. The machine bolts onto a minimum shaft diameter of 100mm (4") up to a maximum diameter of 280mm (11") and has a standard turning reach of 405mm (16").

Tapping

Our Pneumatic Tapping Machine is very versatile and compact, thus making the headaches of tapping large diameter holes, pipe extensions onto tapping handles, broken taps and skew holes something of the past. With this Tapping Machine holes of up to 110mm in diameter can easily be tapped.

Hot Tapping

This is a process by which access is made to the inside of an operational pipeline by use of a drill or a circular cutter. Hot tapping can be done on pressures of up to 100Bar, depending on the size, line temperature and flow rate of the medium.

Valve Repair

We can re-condition almost any type and make of valve. Valve repair can be done in a workshop, but is mostly done on-site. The clients benefit from this, because there is no additional time and money lost due to the transport to and from an engineering workshop.
