Operations in the oil and gas industry often involve potentially dangerous compounds and conditions, such as strong chemicals and high pressures. For these reasons, the components used in oil and gas equipment are built to strict specifications and standards. The slightest variation in shape or size could cause performance issues, which, in turn, could lead to unsafe situations. That’s why many parts and products are made using precision machining.
Precision machining is a subtractive manufacturing process. It utilizes computer-guided machines and cutting tools, which ensure components are made to the exact size, shape, and tolerance guidelines provided by the customer. Industry professionals can rely on precision machined components to fit and perform as intended.
