The ORBITEC large part machining centers provide the capability to create true turned surfaces on parts that difficult, or too large, to rotate. The machines greatly reduce setup times and improve throughput for large, heavy and awkward workpieces such those often found in the energy industry. As a cost-effective, innovative valve body production center ORBITEC machines can complete more than 75% of valve applications in one setup while maintaining high tolerances.
The patented head-design technology in ORBITEC machines allow them to perform a variety of operations, including the facing of flange surfaces, conical boring of taper holes, face milling and endmilling, in a single part setups. The machine’s head allows the centerline of rotation to be moved for positioning the turning centerline where needed.
