Innovative Solutions, Quality, and Performance Since 1936. We do the Impossible.
Turn to Zimmerman for jumbo and large part machining. We can swing over 5 feet on a vertical turret lathe and over 20 feet of bridge mill travel.
For this project, we machined large baseplates for High Precision Devices in Boulder. HPD was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in 2017 with this Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory. In this main base, we were proud to deliver 1,045 threaded holes, 300 through holes with true position of 0.005″, and milled the perimeter of this 86″ across hexagonal shape with flatness less than 0.010″.
For years, we have supplied these machine tool 120″ baseplates with eight (8) precision 9-inch bores within 0.005″ true position to each other, for aluminum can inking machines.
Our 62″ swing vertical turret lathe machines inlet and discharge housings for centrifugal pumps and compressors for Sundyne. Their gas compressors run at speeds over 40,000 rpms so o-ring surfaces sealing high pressure gases are critical to their safe performance.
Also in the Oil & Gas industry, Zimmerman performs overhaul & repair machining services of large frac pumps operated by Halliburton and valve seat remanufacturing of FMC frac valves.
