New 14-1/2″ Hollow Spindle CNC in Brisbane
Commissioned in March, Sharpe’s new Oil Country CNC lathe is the newest addition to our armoury at our Brisbane workshop.
The machine, built in Taiwan, is specially designed for threading of casing and drill pipe for the oil and gas industry with a large 14.5″ spindle bore and pneumatic power chuck. The lathe has been custom specified to suit our integrally threaded pipe SFJ and SPFJ (Sharpe Flush and Premium Flush Joint ) connections from sizes 10 ½” to 14”, as well as for threading Premium and API OCTG connections.
The Brisbane based threading machine is complimented by an automated pipe-loading bay and will service clients in both the resource and energy sector.
