As industries continue to grow, the demand for heavy machining grows parallel. However, this is a process that requires immense resources and great skills. There are only a few service providers who possess the large-scale capabilities to carry out quality machining of heavy-duty equipment.

Another important point to be kept in mind is, when dealing with the machining of heavy equipment, one has to have a no-tolerance policy for errors. Even the minutest error could lead to serious consequences as heavy machines are used for critical applications. It involves manufacturing or servicing machines that weigh as much as 100,000 lbs.

There is no doubt about the fact that manufacturing heavy machines such as pressure vessels requires immense know-how. Now, let’s take a look at the highlights of a good machining service provider:

Since this job requires the servicing and machining of critical equipment such as vessels & tanks, it is important that the service provider respects deadlines. Delays in the servicing or shipment of such equipment could delay your own commitments.

Exacting specifications are also a critical aspect of machining—be it prototypes or heavy machines. Hence, go for a service provider with a veritable reputation. By using sub-standard equipment, you could be putting the very life of your labor-force at stake.

The experience of your machining firm manufacturer also matters immensely. If your manufacturer has extensive experience, they are bound to be seasoned players in the market.

The resources available at the factory of the machining service provider also play an important role. The company in question should have enough space to manufacture and test equipment. In addition, they should also have resources such as cranes, boring mills, CNC lathes, machining centers among other things.

If you are placing an order for an exceptionally large machine or part, then ask your machining service provider if they have a facility such as a drive-through truck bay. By doing this, you can be assured of the proper handling of your machine or part.

Quality assurance is another important aspect of the machining process, especially if dealing with critical equipment such as vessels & tanks. The firm in question should ideally have an ISO certification, should carry out X-ray inspection of parts and should perform Positive Material Identification (PMI) and Liquid Penetrant Inspection (LPI) testing.

In addition, the heavy machining and large machining tasks carried out by the firm should ideally be supported by tools such as 3-D Pro-Engineer Design, Finite Element Analysis (FEA). This also goes a long way in getting superior and accurate prototypes. This is important when it comes to machining equipment such as pressure vessels.

With several heavy machining service providers making their presence felt on the internet today, you can request for an online quote and then compare several service providers before making a final decision.
