At Columbia Manufacturing, Inc. we specialize in precision CNC machining and the bearing support housing displayed above demonstrates our expertise in this field. This product is fabricated from cast and sheet A18 Inconel, at 41" in diameter and is 7" in height.

The customer supplied us with 2-D CAD files, which allowed us to generate the 3D models, required for fabrication, their specifications also called for a repair option, which we were able to incorporate into the design.

These featured custom components were formed utilizing our 4-axis CNC milling and turning capabilities, and assembled with TIG, robotic plasma arc welding, all of which met the required tolerances of ±.001". Quality was maintained through full metallurgical examination, as well as magnetic particle inspection, fluorescent penetrant and X-ray testing. All of the finished bearing support housing units also received a plasma spray coating before being delivered to our customer in East Hartford, Connecticut.

Our customers trust in our ability to precision machine this type of product.  We currently manufacture seven of these assemblies per month. For more information on this precision CNC machined Inconel project, see the table below, or contact us directly.
