Specialised Machining

A project for GE Oil showcased Orontide’s Bunbury workshop’s specialised machining capabilities following installation of new state of the art CNC machines.

The scope of work required a prototype to be made as a test piece before work commenced on the manufacture and machining of the subsea wellhead PAD-PRT body.

Both the prototype and the final product were machined using Orontide’s 5 axis CNC Mazak Integrex machine centre from a single piece of grade 8630 forged bar.
