Flame Cutting of a Steel Crankshaft Counterweight for the Energy Industry

Flame Cutting of a Steel Crankshaft Counterweight for the Energy Industry 
Flame Cutting of a Steel Crankshaft Counterweight for the Energy Industry

The project highlighted here was designed for use as a counter weight for a crankshaft used in a power generation application. Composed of HR steel plate, manufacturing require initial flame cutting of the raw material, the component was then machined to tolerances of ±0.254mm. It was also shot blasted. Following manufacturing each part was de-magnetized and subject to dimensional inspection.
