4 Common Myths About Field Machining Debunked article featured image

Field machining is a highly specialized form of machining that involves performing machining operations on site, rather than in a traditional machine shop.

While field machining offers several advantages over traditional machining methods, there are also many myths and misconceptions surrounding the practice.

In this article, we’ll debunk 4 common myths about field machining

Myth #1: Field Machining is Only for Emergency Situations

One of the most common myths about field machining is that it is only used in emergency situations when a machine or piece of equipment has broken down. While field machining can certainly be used for emergency repairs, it is also commonly used for planned maintenance and upgrades, as well as for new installations.

Myth #2: Field Machining is Inaccurate

Another common myth about field machining is that it is less accurate than shop machining methods. However, with modern advances in field machining technology, this is not always true. In fact, field machining can often be just as accurate as shop machining, as it allows for real-time adjustments to be made during machining process.

Myth #3: Field Machining is Expensive

Some people believe that field machining is more expensive than traditional machining methods. However, when you consider the cost savings associated with reduced downtime and transportation costs, field machining can actually be a more cost-effective option than shipping a work piece to a machining shop.

Myth #4: Field Machining is Limited in Scope

Finally, there is a common misconception that field machining is limited in scope and can only be used for certain types of equipment or components. In reality, field machining can be used for a wide range of applications, including everything from small, precision components to large-scale equipment and structures.

In conclusion, field machining is a highly specialized and versatile form of machining that offers many benefits over shop machining methods. By debunking these common myths and misconceptions, we hope to encourage more manufacturers and operators to consider field machining as a viable option for their machining needs.
