Metal Disintegration Machining Services

Furmanite’s Metal Disintegration Capabilities and Benefits

  • Metal Hardness: Disintegrates fully-hardened materials, high tensile steels, nimonic, titanium, ferramium, chrome/moly, etc.
  • Hole shape: Different hole shapes can be created in the metal (round, square, hexagon, etc)
  • Portability: The cutting head can be set up in-situ at any angle. It also has very low headroom requirements allowing for tight access
  • Low Temperature: Furmanite’s process is unaffected by thermal stresses due to the continuous water coolant
  • Low Forces: There are no mechanical side forces to cause misalignment. We can accurately cut into angled or non-flat surfaces
  • Unique solution for the difficult removal of sheared studs and bolts

Destruction at Its Finest

Furmanite’s unique and portable process enables almost any metal to be broken down into minute particles. It works by combining a cutting action with a continuous series of high frequency electric arcs. An electrode held in the cutting head of the disintegrator vibrates as it cuts. Simultaneously, a non-hazardous water coolant is pumped through the electrode to wash away the powdered metal.
