It’s a busy time at Eilbeck Heavy Machining Centre with machines running around the clock 24 hours 6 days a week. This is in order to complete the massive undertaking to install and commission two huge Full Portal Cranes being used for the Victorian West Gate Tunnelling Project and additionally keep sub-contracting jobs rolling through the door and customers happy. See some current projects below:

Drums for the Victorian West Gate Tunnelling Project

Eilbeck Cranes infamous Drum Boy! this man undeniably one of the hardest workers we have, and prior to starting at Eilbeck Machining Centre he hadn’t turned a part bigger than his hand. Now John has his work cut out for him, and he is pumped. Below featured are the drums used for the 500t TBM (tunnel boring machine) Crane, 250t TBM Crane and the additional 40t mucking cranes.

Heavy Walled Australian Forging

This Drum has been a great job, the forging turned on our 1.2m swing x 4.0m CNC bed Lathe, and post turning, holes drilled and tapped on our 8m bed lathe with a rotating spindle to complete the drilling in a single set up to ensure 100% alignment. . The Material locally forged 4140, 750mm dia x 125mm wall thickness and 650mm in length. Overall a great job, and a happy customer.

Pushing the Limits

Due to the horizontal borer style machine being too busy at the time to facilitate this job, we decided to push it through the double column mill. With this large fabrication 1.85m in height only just fitting under the column of the machine it became a tight squeeze. Eilbeck’s youngest machinist managing to finish machine bearing journals on both sides in a single set up. This job finished in a single set up made possible with the 800mm ram travel and right angle head on our Okuma Double Column.
