On-Site Machining (OSM)

On-site Field Machining Services – Where You Need It, When You Need It…

In order for your plant to perform at optimum levels all the time, ongoing repairs are a part of doing business. But making these improvements or adjustments shouldn’t have to compromise operational efficiencies.

By utilizing the full range of Furmanite’s On-Site Field Machining (OSM) services, you receive work and results that exceed any standard of quality – ensuring plant productivity and longevity. But you’re also able to realize tremendous savings in transportation, logistics, labor, time, and – of course – money. Repairs and modifications made right at your plant, right when you need them and right the first time.

Furmanite introduced its On-Site Machining (OSM) service in 1979, which has since developed into a comprehensive site machining package complementing the full range of other Furmanite specialized services. Comprehensive ranges of machine tools have been developed and manufactured in-house that are able to meet the most demanding requirements found on clients’ sites. These are marketed under the Silk TM brand.

Furmanite technicians are fully trained, competent and have a high regard for both safety and the requirements of the customer while working on their sites.

The Furmanite OSM service can consistently bring the benefits of a fully equipped machine workshop to a customer’s site. Tolerances and finishes, usually only achievable in a machine shop, can be reliably reproduced in unfavorable field environments by the use of the Furmanite range of portable machine tools.

Furmanite equipment has the capacity to mill, bore, trepan, drill or carry out any other machining activity normally associated with a workshop. Furmanite’s machines are either pneumatically or hydraulically powered for use in plant environments where intrinsically safe operations are mandatory. All machines are fully adaptable to the task concerned.
