Although conventional machining equipment and techniques are suitable for most parts and components, these methods are often unable to meet the more stringent demands surrounding the fabrication of heavy components. Heavy component machining involves the handling and fabrication of large items to be used in heavy equipment, machine tools, and buildings. Heavy machining, therefore, requires specialized tooling that can handle the stresses and rigors imposed by cumbersome components, while also maintaining precision and tolerance requirements.
Technox Machine and Manufacturing’s state-of-the-art machinery and highly experienced engineering and fabrication team allow us to provide machining services for large assemblies and subassemblies for a broad range of applications. This puts us on a short list of fabricators in the Midwest capable of manufacturing heavy, oversized, and complex machine parts.
Key Industries for Heavy Component Machining
Heavy component machining is frequently used in industries where vehicles, equipment, and machinery tend to be larger than those in typical applications. This approach is used to manufacture parts for a variety of industrial equipment across many industries, such as:
- Construction: Excavators, trucks, cranes, bulldozers, pile drivers
- Mining: Trucks, tractors, loaders
- Agriculture: Tractors, plows, balers
- Aerospace: Turbines, aircraft, satellites
- Power generation: Gas and wind turbines
Why Use Technox?
At Technox Machine and Manufacturing, our fleet of cutting-edge CNC machining equipment allows us to meet the fabrication needs of the most demanding heavy machining project. Our range of capabilities include:
Our CNC-controlled boring machines can accommodate components with dimensions up to 120 inches x 152 inches x 70 inches. The five-axis capability of our machines enables us to fabricate the most intricate components, with tight tolerances of ± 0.0005 inches.
We also possess a wide array of some of the largest three- and four-axis CNC turning equipment. Our inventory of horizontal, vertical, and CNC lathes are capable of handling large parts up to 152 inches in diameter and 240 inches in length. These machines are also capable of producing extremely precise parts with tolerances within ± 0.001 inches.
Our collection of three- and four-axis vertical machining centers can facilitate the CNC milling of components with dimensions up to 113 inches in length, 336 inches in width, and 84 inches in height.
Our manufacturing operations are conducted in three different facilities, each outfitted with numerous high-capacity cranes, forklifts, and other lifting/hoisting equipment capable of moving components weighing as much as 15 tons.
A Commitment to Quality
At Technox Machine and Manufacturing Inc., quality is at the forefront of our business. Our strict quality management systems are compliant with ISO 9001 regulations to ensure that our manufacturing processes consistently produce parts and components of the highest quality. All welded assemblies are also thoroughly inspected and tested by our team of experienced, AWS-certified welding professionals.
