05 Apr APPLICATION SPOTLIGHT: SHOVEL REPAIR
Blue Ridge Industrial, out of Gillette, Wyoming, fabricated special mounts to use the CM6200 Circular Mill to mill the upper and lower rail pads on a Caterpillar 7495 Shovel in Robinson, Nevada. The alignment had to be concentric and perpendicular to the center pin bore. Blue Ridge Industrial used a faro laser tracker to shoot the mill into the tight tolerances.
The CLIMAX CM6200 Circular Mill:
For machining large flanges 73.5 – 199 inches (1866.9 – 5054.6 mm) in diameter and featuring a center machine clearance designed to fit over 24 inches (609.6 mm) diameter kingpins, this Circular Mill can be configured for powerful milling, single-Point machining, and grinding operations. Extraordinary rigidity, versatility, and power are at your fingertips – this machine can handle your toughest large flange machining jobs quickly and efficiently. For smaller ranges, view the FF7200 or FF8200 Flange Facers.
