The California Department of Water Resources (DWR) faced a daunting repair project on the Oroville Dam, a hydroelectric plant near Sacramento, California, and the tallest dam in the U.S. The FF8200 helped the team achieve a tolerance of .002 inches (.0508 mm) across the 121-inch (307 cm) diameter stainless steel turbine runner and completed the job with minimum downtime and disruption to the plant. Pairing on-site portable machine tools with highly skilled mechanics helped complete this job in an efficient, reliable and cost-effective manner, making the project a huge success.

CLIMAX’s automated welding machines are designed to attach directly to several of our boring machine mounting fixtures allowing a single setup for both welding and machining operations. These automated welders offer high-quality, affordable welding performance for bore, flange and valve repair.
CLIMAX circular mills deliver fast, versatile machining to meet demanding wind tower specifications for connection flanges. Three-axis milling head adjustments allow the machinist to meet taper and flatness specifications simultaneously.
Our portable three-axis milling machine family starts with the PM4200 – a versatile model with available bed options of 20, 49 or 78 inches (508, 1244.6 and 1981.2 mm) of travel. Our largest mill, the LM6200, features the ability to configure for linear AND gantry milling, with up to 84 inches (2133.6 mm) of x-axis travel and 34 inches (863.6 mm) of y-axis travel. There is plenty of spindle torque for fast metal removal and the capacity to mill in nearly any position.
