Machining & Manufacture

January 14, 2021

Ocean Kinetics have invested heavily in machines, equipment and training to complement our fabrication capabilities and allow us to provide a comprehensive in-house manufacturing facility.

Safandarley M-Shear Guillotine

One such investment is a state-of-the-art, M-Shear guillotine by SafanDarley. This computer-controlled machine is manufactured in Holland, and is able to cut up to 4.3m long sheets of steel, stainless and aluminium. Equipped with pneumatic supports for cutting thin sheets, automatic scrap discharge system, and a return to sender cutting feature. This fast and energy-efficient guillotine complements our SafanDarley 300 tonne press brake.

Precision Plasma Cutter Machine

Our CNC HD plasma cutter can be used to cut complex profiles or simple plate work. By linking to our 2D & 3D cad systems, we can optimise material usage and calculate shapes based on their finished dimensions. This increases the versatility of the machine, reduces waste and ensures that components will meet specifications, fits and tolerances. The machine offers precision multi-axis cutting of aluminium, stainless steel and carbon steel up to 40mm thick. Lower resolution cutting can also be undertaken on steel up to 80mm.

 Turning and Milling Machines

Our machine shop includes the latest CNC Turning and Milling equipment; this enables us to incorporate complex components, mechanisms and keyways into our fabrications. We can also provide bespoke machined items, in large or small volumes. Our equipment is fully integrated with our design office and can utilise software such as Solidworks to visualise parts and design complex or compound shapes.

1000kg Vacuum Lifter

A quick and efficient 1000kg vacuum lifter means that we can safely transport sheet materials. This piece of machinery ensures there is no damage caused in the lifting and transportation process.
