CBE+ Specialise in Valve Body Machining

January 7, 2020

CBE+ Precision, the machining Division of CBE+, is a subcontractor specialising is CNC Milling, CNC turning, assembly and testing.

The products machined serve some of the world’s most technical and challenging markets including Energy, Aerospace and Defence, being AS9100(d) and ISO9001:2015 accredited.

One specialist service CBE+ Precision offer is valve machining, with three Okuma multi-pallet horizontal machining centres on site we have a high capacity for valve body machining up to 1 cubic metre.

The Okuma machining centres at CBE+ are equipped with specialist Turn-Cut capabilities, enabling a horizontal machining centre to create surfaces that taper, arc, or have any combination of varying diameter profiles along the Z-axis of a work piece, achieving excellent surface finishes otherwise unachievable through traditional CNC milling.

Turn-Cut is used in applications that would traditionally use a CNC lathe to turn a feature. In some cases, the part configuration (size, shape, weight) prohibits it from being set up on a lathe. With Turn-Cut, you can achieve a turned finished on a milled product, perfect for valve body machining applications where surface finish of valve seats is often critical.

CBE+ Precision (formally BG Engineering) has a long-standing history of high-profile valve customers in gas, steam and LNG valve markets such as Honeywell and Spriax Sarco.

Our assembly and pressure testing services mean we can provide bespoke solutions to meet customer tailored specifications.

Our Horizontal machining centres currently have immediate capacity. To enquire contact us or call 01246 529 014.
