Metal Machining

Over 200 machining centers to meet exact customer specifications

From turning to boring to drilling, MetalTek’s rough machining and finish machining capabilities can meet the most demanding customer requirements.  We machine components up to 200” (5,000 mm) outer diameter (O.D.) and up to 200,000 pounds (90,718 kg).  Our ability to bore centrifugal castings up to 50’ (15 m) in length is matched by only a few machine shops in the world. 

These capabilities extend not only to standard dimensions but also to unusual shapes and sizes such as balls, spherical configurations, as well as those calling for special tools or fixtures.  Our ability to reclaim machine chips allows us to offer competitive machining costs for the parts that we cast.  If we somehow cannot meet a customer’s machining specifications, then we will rely on one of our trusted outside machining partners.

Machining at MetalTek is performed on site at the Wisconsin Centrifugal, Sandusky International, and Sandusky Limited Divisions using computer numerical control (CNC) technology.  Each facility uses its full range of metallurgy & engineering, metal casting, heat treatment, metal fabrication, and metal testing & analysis capabilities to partner with customers for their entire product journey - from design to delivery.
