Our projects are artistic, mechanical, monochromatic, brightly colored, industrial, and visual. Simply put – they are as unique as our clients. Knowing we are only as good as our last commission keeps us eager to find our next challenge.
This table was built to display a deep sea hose at OTC. The customer’s name and parent company logo are cut into the base. It is made from 1/2″ thick steel and fully welded at all joints. Originally the customer wanted a plain, square tube steel table. I designed this and presented it as a more artistic option.
The customer needed a tool to peel multi layer, deep sea hose like an apple peeler would. This tool clamps onto a mandrel placed in the end of the tube and slices off varying depths of rubber to expose steel braided wires. HCMW generated the 3D design before any metal was cut. Water jetting, CNC milling, CNC turning, and welding were all necessary. The threading for the two main bodies is a non-standard acme thread similar to others used by the customer.
These assemblies incorporate all major activities at HCMW; 3D design, Milling, Turning, and Water Jet cutting. These are made from stainless steel and aluminum. The teak handle is turned in house. We facilitate the outside processing. We acquire the hardware. We assemble the parts and provide the finished product in a box that goes on the customer’s shelf until it is taken out to the field and installed.
This machine was first fully realized in 3D. Once the design was evaluated and approved, production of the Make parts began. This included water jetting plate, CNC milling, CNC turning, forming, and sending some parts for outside processing. All hardware was ordered and coordination with the customer for a few unique parts he was supplying. Assembly of all mechanical components was completed and the machine was picked up by the customer. It is currently out for UL and FDA testing.
