Modular multi-function CNC machining system

ART brings you the metaltek modular multi-function CNC machining system. This new breed of machine is fully portable and is able to provide an unparalleled range of machining functions in the field and workshop.

Processes such as face milling, drilling, pocketing, bevelling, thread milling, tapping, plasma and oxy profiling as well as surface mapping (probing) and reverse engineering through digitising are all available with this product range.

Why a portable solution?

Repairs often create “double jeopardy” for mining, oil&gas companies as emergency fixes have high costs while the asset is simultaneously down and not producing revenue. Downtime, and the clock is ticking. As a result, it is important to have the right equipment at hand and onsite if a piece of critical mining equipment, which cannot be moved to the shop, is broken.

Some workpieces are simply too heavy to be transported to the machine or even too large to be machined on a conventional CNC machine. As a result, the machine has to be transported to the workpiece, which is a very common scenario in industries working with large machinery, such as the mining or oil & gas industries.
