For over 50 years, Collins Machine Works has been offering innovative on-site machining and welding solutions for our customers’ needs within the defense, marine, mining, and industrial markets. Our highly trained field technicians are supplemented by a diverse array of mobile machinery. At Collins Machine Works, we believe in providing the best possible service for our current and potential customers. Our expedited services are sure to reduce downtime for your equipment in order to meet challenging deadlines.
In addition to traditional key machining practices, Collins Machine Works specializes in combining various production methods to support complex projects. Our field repair teams are supported by our comprehensive in-house machining capabilities as well as engineering, project management, and quality assurance staff. Through custom solutions we are able to integrate multiple aspects of a project such as custom fixturing, machine mounts, and part replacement in order to increase efficiency and exceed customer expectations.
At Collins Machine Works we utilize a comprehensive selection of tapered and line boring bar systems to meet the most rigorous of job requirements. Our standard equipment can machine bores up to 24’ long and from 1.25” to 49.5” in diameter. When jobs call for a larger bore size we can manufacture custom cutter assemblies and other solutions to meet almost any requirement. In addition, each boring bar system can be modified to mount on any seating surface or angle needed to align the bar to ensure precise machining.
If a very precise bore or finish is required we can make use of our wide range of portable honing equipment in combination with our in-situ boring equipment to hit an exact size on an inside diameter. This procedure allows our field technicians to machine close tolerance bores and achieve specific surface finishes when required. Collins Machine Works utilizes portable spring, box, and arbor hones along with a broad selection of stock abrasives to guarantee flexible solutions and quick turnaround time.
Collins Machine Works provides on-site repair to all size flanges. Flanges need repair to their surfaces due to corrosion and erosion of the gasket seal which cause damage to the mating surfaces. Our flange facers are capable of mounting to both inside and outside diameters of the flange or bore to allow for machining in even the most constrained environments. Collins Machine Works flange facing operations can be used in many applications such as cutting grooves, chamfers, bevels, and for the facing of the flange. As with our other services, we can provide custom mounting and machining solutions for non-standard requirements.
Collins Machine Works on-site machining mills are available for machining flat or misaligned surfaces to reestablish new or preexisting plains. Our portable mills are capable of machining surfaces up to 120” long on one setup in addition to cutting keyways on all size shafts. This service is often used in concert with our in-place welding offerings with great results. Please call for more details on Collins Machine Works on-site milling capabilities.
