Sandmeyer Steel Blog


Sandmeyer Steel Company provided four finished machined all over and drilled tube sheets on our Quickmill Annihilator® Machining Center for one of our customers.  We utilized our extensive heavy plate inventory, and then our skilled machine operators processed all four 5.000” (+.030/-.000) thick x 49.500” (+/-.030) diameters from 5-1/4” 316LEZ Stainless Steel stock.

This material was our E-Z Drill material in 316LEZ Stainless Steel allowing us to optimize our speeds and feeds while extending insert tool life.  Sandmeyer plasma cut the blanks, machined the OD, and machined both faces, each side with a raised face.

Our Quickmill Annihilator® Machining Center drilled over 1030 tube holes 0.758” diameter to a critical tolerance of +/-.002”.  Finally, after drilling thirty 1.500 diameter bolt holes, Sandmeyer added a milled linear groove across one face through the center of the tube hole pattern. Providing you with solutions and one-stop shopping for your tough Stainless Steel, Nickel Alloy, and Titanium plate and plate products needs is what we do.
