02 Dec MAKING THE CASE FOR PORTABLE MACHINE TOOLS
Stainless Steel World Americas – December 2021. Today, experienced machinists, fabricators, machine shop owners, and OEMs use their trade skills and experience to shape and reshape the world we live in. In all cases, the question is not, can they machine complex metal parts and components, but rather, can they do it efficiently for their customers and profitably for their employers?
When operations like oil refineries, mines, dams, shipyards, and power plants experience a mechanical breakdown, it can cost them millions of dollars every day. Traditionally, these mission-critical assets would be dismantled and transported to the machine shop before being repaired and sent back. Using portable machine tools, however, can be the best way to reduce downtime and increase productivity by remachining and repairing those assets onsite.
