For oilfield service companies and their parts suppliers to respond quickly and deliver fast turnarounds of parts and assemblies used to maintain, repair or replace assets such as rotary oil and gas field drilling machinery, oil and gas field production machinery, portable drilling rigs and parts, and other related equipment, they will need new tooling and workholding for faster and more accurate processes, shorter cycle times and lower operating costs. Here is a closer look at some of the tooling and workholding they can use to get the job done quick:
Vibration-Dampening Tooling for Large Diameter Work in Oil and Gas Applications
With its patented and versatile GL connection, the Steadyline vibration-dampening tooling system from Seco Tools features a polylobe taper-face interface for centering accuracy, 100 percent repeatability and fast tool head exchanges that allow shops to perform both static and rotating operations with the same bar.
High-Feed Face Mill Speeds Up Productivity in Oil and Gas Work
Using a 25 deg entering angle for additional productivity gains when milling steel and cast-iron workpieces, the high-feed CoroMill 745 face milling cutter from Sandvik Coromant achieves higher metal removal rates in applications with depths of cut up to 0.110 in.
How to Provide Uniform Pressure on Jaws for Consistent Bore in Oil and Gas Jobs
Jaw forming rings from Dillon are mounted in direct contact with the top jaw so that the jaw forming ring preloads the chucking system and grips the workpiece more firmly to maximize jaw life for cutting and forming operations, providing uniform pressure on all jaws for a consistent bore.
Replaceable Single Tip Drill for Small and Deep Hole Boring in Oil and Gas Applications
The BT-A Drill from Allied Machine & Engineering uses a laser clad bearing area for improved straightness and replaceable cutting edges to eliminate the need for resharpening.
Combination Cutting/Grinding Wheels for Oil Rig and Pipeline Manufacturing
Norton Quantum3 Combination Wheels from Saint-Gobain Abrasives provide 50 percent longer life that significantly reduces the need for wheel changes, resulting in decreased production downtime, less operator fatigue and lower labor cost.
Versatile Pipeline Grinding Discs Minimize Downtime and Increase User Productivity
The expanded line of depressed-center grinding discs from Osborn includes pipeline grinding discs in Advanced Aluminum Oxide and Zirconia for fast cutting, heavy stock removal, long service life, application material versatility and smooth finish.
Instant Data Transfer of Band Saw Blade Cutting Parameters to Machine
Saw operators can use the Individual Performance Cutting (IPC) custom band saw blades program from Simonds/WESPA to point, scan and transfer a complete, unique data set of machine-specific cutting parameters to the machine to begin cutting.
