Machining a Large Diameter Steel Plate with many Holes. 45” Diameter x 3 ¾” Thick

Customer Requirements

Current supplier was not able to supply Plates to meet specification.

Solution

Toolcraft reverse engineered correct Plates and created Blueprints. Toolcraft is not able to turn this big of a diameter so we teamed up with another company to have the diameter turned to size. Using our Devlieg Jig Mill we are able to put all the holes in the proper location.

Customer Value Gained

Customer is now getting Plates that are within specifications.
