Use of Equipment: Extra Large Circular Self Levelling Milling Machine (XL-CSLM) and Portable Magnetic Drilling Machine
Self Levelling Metal Machines was engaged to provide an on-site machining for FLNG Moonpool with a diameter of 29,788 mm.
Our XL-CSLM, with its laser control, was developed to machine this large diameter moonpool. The main advantage of using a laser is that the machining diameter is limited only by the target’s ability to interface with the laser source. Large diameters are machined using a scanning laser plane to replace the datum ring. The laser is mounted on the central pivot system and adjusted to scan parallel to the desired machining plane.
Self Levelling Metal Machines was engaged to provide an on-site machining for Bogey Support Structure and Measuring with a diameter of PCD 30,000mm.
With our Portable Magnetic Drilling Machine, the job was carried out (1) to machine a Radial Bogey Mounts with 40 locations of line bore of top diameter of 430mm and bottom diameter of 260mm including drilling and spotfacing and (2) Drilling of Axial Bogey Mount faces of 40 locations, including spotfacing of bottom face.
