T&T IN SITU MACHINING GROUP
Congratulations to Ingmar Thut and T&T In Situ Machining Group from Norderstedt Germany using the CLIMAX CM6200 Circular Mill to successfully re-machine the inner and outer flange of this buoy to achieve the flatness needed. Creatively T&T flipped the setup by welding poles to the buoy to allow for additional surface using only four legs to clamp and align. The flatness and surface qualities came out perfectly!

Congratulations to Jay Titley from In-Situ Machining Solutions in Alberta, Canada, for using a CLIMAX PM6000 to machine two badly leaking flanges. The flanges were roughly .250” out of flat before machining repairs. In-Situ was able to machine the flanges to spec at .010” flat from end to end. After machining the flanges, they were sealed up with no issues or leaks!
