, Portable Milling, Portable Line Boring, and Portable Boring, also known as field machining, on site machining, in place machining, and in situ machining, brings the portable machine shop to you!
Portable machining solutions are deployed when machinery is too large, complex, or costly to remove from its assembly; OR, when removing the machinery would result in down time causing a larger expense than machining the machinery in place. Custom machine tools are specially manufactured to mill, bore, face, hone, or drill the work piece while it remains on line, in place or on site. Field System Machining has set the possibilities curve in machining since our 1978 inception.
Field System Machining is your lowest cost solution when it absolutely, positively cannot come apart, and/or when the repairs absolutely, positively have to be done in the shortest amount of down time. In Situ machining is the fastest method to machinery repair turnaround, and thus is often the absolute cheapest method given your loss of operating revenue, versus the cost to repair. Knowing your real numbers is the best way to get your machining project budgeted and approved in a hurry. Numbers speak louder than words.
