We have recently performed third-party mechanical machining operations for a large base and head. These components, for their size and length, are perhaps the largest ever made.
The two components, base and head for six-piston compressor made of spheroidal cast iron, machined separately, are intended for a compressor station installed on systems fixed to the ground with the purpose of compressing the gas for its transition from solid to liquid state.
Compressor base dimensions:
- Dimensions: 6000*1500*2500 mm
- Total weight: 20 ton.
The pictures below show the boring, milling, drilling and dimensional inspection operations in our ZEISS MMZ-G 30 60 25 machine.
