An oilfield equipment manufacturer was tasked with providing long-length mandrels and PBR’s for an operator in Abu Dhabi with an upcoming project. The OEM placed an order through a traditional mill for nickel alloy 625+ tubing in non-standard lengths and specifications to manufacture the downhole equipment. However, as the project deadline approached, the mill delivered material that was not produced to the proper lengths, leaving the OEM and the operator in a critical situation.
The OEM reached out, and CRA immediately got to work on a solution. In close collaboration with the customer, CRA’s team of experts assessed end user specification requirements, and alloy G3 was determined to be a viable alternative to alloy 625+. CRA was able to provide the custom long-length alloy G3 material in near-finished dimensions in just 10 weeks.
Where urgent requirements, non-standard sizes, lengths, and quantities may limit traditional mills and distributors, CRA’s Just-In-Time manufacturing model ensures access to the right product in the timeframe you need it. Ready to get started? Contact our team today!
