A client in the mining industry came to G.E. Mathis Company for a custom plasma cut and beveled component part.  

Our 400-amp, high-definition, CNC plasma cutting table allowed G.E. Mathis Company to create this part as specified by the customer-supplied 2D drawing. Our machining center features a unique 4-axis beveling head that is capable of cutting a bevel into a part and is able to follow a contour or a curve. On this part, the bevel was a necessary feature for weld preparation.

Made from A36 steel, this component part measured 7/8″ thick, 29.125″ wide, and 62.375″ long and featured a mill plate finish.

We performed first article, in-process, and final item inspection to ensure that we had fulfilled the customer’s requirements. Sixteen component parts were produced in just two weeks, and we held this part to an overall tolerance of ±.063″.
