SEVENTH PICTURE OF THE YEAR FINALIST

Our seventh finalist was captured by Ward Vessel & Exchanger based in North Carolina, USA, using an H&S TOOL AFC 66” Clamshell to complete an internal weld overlay repair. To accomplish this, Ward used the H&S Clamshell to cut off the lower section to have full access to the overlay. They used compound angle tooling to tackle the 60” diameter and 3” thick carbon steel material with a compound 37-10 bevel ensuring a much nicer weld prep after the overlay was complete. Thank you to Jon Ward, Chris Grice, and for allowing us to support Ward’s Field Service Group with locations in Charlotte and Houston, Texas!

TENTH PICTURE OF THE YEAR FINALIST

Our tenth finalist is from Martin Bachmann Keller EIRL based in Lima, Peru, using a modified CLIMAX KM3000 Key Mill to mill a notch on a gas turbine shaft. When the site was told the job couldn’t be completed immediately and it would take 20 weeks, MBK and the team were able to adapt their KM3000 and complete the notch in 2 hours. According to Martin ‘This example shows the versatility of CLIMAX machines. They are indestructible, easy to adapt, and designed with lots of reserves.’ Thank you to Martin Bachmann for allowing us to support your success!
