CNC Turning of Inconel Downstream Tool for the Oil Field Industry

At Ed's Precision Manufacturing, LLC, we are proud of our ability to manufacture superior quality parts that provide extended wear life, even in the harsh, high pressure conditions found in oil field operations. This tool, fabricated for use within a downstream fishing application, is one such example. The customer specification called for Inconel 718, chosen for its ability to withstand extreme environments. Our engineers developed a process that utilized specific machining techniques best suited for working with Inconel to avoid rapid work hardening and deformation of the part. An additional requirement was that we maintain full traceability throughout the manufacturing cycle.

This fishing tool was first turned, drilled, and bored on our heavy duty CNC lathe to a 6.500" O.D./5.250" I.D. Subsequent operations for milling the slots were accomplished on our 4-axis mill, chosen for its ability to make precise, aggressive cuts on this very hard metal. Smoothed to a 32 Ra finish, the piece was closely inspected to ensure it was within the strict ±.001" tolerances of the specification, then shipped to the customer along with full traceability documentation.
