At Brant Custom Machining, Ltd., we make the manufacturing of complex, precision-intensive designs possible for commercial and industrial firms alike. Working closely with our customers to ensure the highest levels of quality, we deliver a custom manufacturing service that is fast, convenient, cost effective, and excellent for servicing and upgrading projects.
In the project highlighted here, we were contracted by a Heat Exchanger industry customer to produce a horizontally-bored stainless steel tube sheet. This 60.00″ diameter, 6.25″ deep device, used to channel pipes, would require high precision manufacturing that could cope with its sheer size.
For a project this large, we opted to use a horizontal boring approach for creating the tube sheet, being formed from a disc of 304 stainless steel. We used a CNC Horizontal Boring Mill for this process. This would provide less expensive, faster manufacturing along with excellent peak tolerances of ± 0.001″. After the horizontal boring, deburring, inspection, and testing steps followed.
Thanks to our outstanding abilities in custom manufacturing, we enabled an industrial customer to create their design intent within a completed, high quality product. For more information about our services, see the table below and feel free to contact us directly.
