Tube Sheets

Sandmeyer is now drilling tube sheets with our QuickMill Annihilator.  This order for a processing equipment manufacturer included 4 tube sheets made of 316L. They were machined all over with an OD bevel prep to  36-3/16” OD – 1-1-4” thick, with (97) 2.381 diameter holes that have a 64 finish and a tolerance of +/-.002.  Holes were drilled and milled to size and tolerance on the Annihilator  to quickly meet our customer’s timeline.

As part of our “Sandmeyer Serves” program of volunteer activity, employees recently donated their time to local organization Cathedral Kitchen in Camden, NJ.

Cathedral Kitchen serves nutritious meals for impoverished residents of Camden, and served 100,000 meals in 2016 alone. On Saturday, the Sandmeyer team prepped and served plates, wrapped food to-go, and assisted in cleanup.
