The work-pieces are various wellhead, tubular, and fluid transfer components. The materials are numerous steel alloys. Machining operations entail roughing and finished turning and boring. Most work-pieces are held in a four-jaw chuck.
This installation uses an MVL-16 machine. All MVL-16 models feature 240mm (9.44″) rams, 1,600mm (63″) diameter tables, and 2,000mm (78″) swing capacity.
The MVL has lived up to its reputation as a heavy-duty workhorse, reliably machining a wide variety of work. In particular, it has been used to hog flanges from raw billet material when forgings are not available. This requires removing thousands of pounds of chips per work-piece, as shown by the before and after images above.
