CNC Turning & Milling of Steel Collar for a Power Generation Application

Collar, Overspeed Trip for Rotating Equipment Solution for Power Industries

As a family-owned and operated CNC machine shop, our team at Westboro Machine continues to provide superior quality and outstanding service to customers. We specialize in CNC milling and turning and excel in manufacturing components for the power generation industry.

One of our frequent customers asked us to produce a custom collar for rotating equipment that would be used in a power generation application. Their specifications required that the collar measure 1” thick, 3” OD and .9692” - .9697” I.D. Using both turning and milling operations, we provided all programming, setup, and final production runs. The parts were composed of 416T steel and precision machined on our Okuma Cadet lathe and HAAS VF4 mill. The collar was continuously inspected during and after production in order to ensure all customer requirements were met and complied with ¼-20-UNC-3B standards.

We delivered the collar on-time and within budget while preventing any sacrifice to quality. The customer was impressed with our work and continues to rely on us for the part each year. Our 4,000 sq. ft. facility provides extensive machining capabilities to customers in multiple industries. We pride ourselves on working with complex or intricate components, providing a unique level of individualized service on every project.
