X-Y milling of radar dome pedestal foundations on naval destroyer
Fast response and a precise job
A Norwegian shipyard contacted Goltens to take over a pressing job that another company had committed to but could not complete. The job was to machine four pedestal foundations for radar domes on a naval destroyer.
The foundations, as constructed, were too rough and uneven to mount the domes. Goltens quickly evaluated the technical requirements and immediately mobilized two in-situ machining technicians and its X-Y milling machinery to the shipyard to start the work.
