Our dedicated team of operators, programmers and state of the art machines are all equally impressive, with all contributing to the same goal we are able to mill and turn simple materials into highly complex engineering components.
As we are approaching the end of the year, Eilbeck Machining is far from slowing down.
The machining workshop is now fully functional and its diverse capabilities are being put to the test!
Hoist frames and Jib Crane base plates ready for machining – Yamal LNG Project
Currently we have hoist drums and end carriages to turn and mill for the Sydney North Connex tunnelling project (Lend Lease Bouygues JV), where we have designed and are manufacturing 4 off 100t double girder kibble cranes, with capabilities of lifting at 40m per minute.
All the machining is taking place in house, where the drums being turned are Ø850mm and from 4m to 8.4m in length, cutting a left and right hand helical screw cut.

In addition to this, milling hoist frames for the Yamal LNG project in the Russian Arctic has proven to be a complex job, as there are many intricate operations and phases of the milling and turning process. However, the real test has come from the material requirements, Weldox 700 – an extremely high tensile steel. Weldox 700 was chosen due to the stringiest temperature requirements of this project – being able to withstand temperatures as low as -50°C while remaining lean in fabrication.

Eilbeck currently hold a state of the art machining workshop, however as we approach 2016 we plan to advance our extensive capabilities further. We are looking forward to the arrival of a ‘Japanese Multi-Tasking Robot’. The Nakamura machine tool is specifically designed for complicated part manufacturing, it has two equally capable spindles and 5 axis movement.
These progressive decisions, expanding Eilbeck Crane’s independence, technology and ability ensure Eilbeck stays at the forefront of our Industry.
