Rancho Cordova, CA – February 17, 2014 – Tri Tool Incorporated today introduced a CNC highproduction counterboring service for the offshore market with unique, seven axis CNC controls. To meet the demand for deep counterbore machining of steel catenary risers and critical pipeline construction needs, Tri Tool has designed and manufactured the new high speed system with safety as a top priority. “No one else has this technology, and now along with our laser-assisted pipe end alignment, productivity will be tremendously increased for our customers,” says Todd Fox, Vice President of International Sales. Tri Tool Services will operate the equipment which will be mobilized for on-site service from the company’s new Houston location.
“In pipe yards and spool bases where safety is paramount and serious injury is a concern, eliminating the need for any manual pipe handling significantly reduces that risk,” stated Mark Marshall, VP of Engineering, Operations and Production. “Our engineers, as usual, designed to our highest quality standards and developed patentable features that will ensure that this service will produce the most consistent and precise results.”
The new CNC High Speed Deep Counterbore Service features the latest, patent pending machining technology. Tri Tool delivers deep counterbore precision, rapid cycle times and superior surface finishes, using the safest pipe handling system available. Safety is optimized in this system with incoming and outgoing mechanized pipe handling racks that require no manual pipe handling. Cycle times are optimized with laser-assisted pipe end alignment, rapid machining by dual, seven axis CNC machines equipped with real time monitoring and the latest in safety features. The equipment will be manned by Tri Tool’s experienced and highly skilled technicians who are certified in its operation.
“We are excited to introduce our new OEM technology, the extremely precise, highly productive CNC counterboring and safe pipe handling system to enhance our other pipeline service offerings that include: laser dimensioning, OD turning, coating removal and automated weld profiling,” said, Pat Flippen, VP of Services at Tri Tool. “It is one of many examples of our Engineering Department’s design/build expertise that allows us to provide our customers with the premium result they have come to expect from Tri Tool.”
