Oil & Gas Exploration
Full Service Partner with Capacity for Growth.
Oberg's Advanced Operations Group develops new processes and technologies that challenge the conventional "machine shop" mentality. This provides you with a fresh approach in component manufacturing.
Directional Drilling Components
Trust Oberg with the production of closely toleranced components/assemblies used for down hole drilling, drill strings, Logging While Drilling (LWD) or Measurement While Drilling (MWD) components. Typical components made from Inconel, stellite, MP35N, stainless steel, or titanium are manufactured to your exacting specs and delivered on time.
Flow Control Components
Precision carbide and ceramic flow control valve components are machined and flat lapped with a flatness of ½ light band or less and with a scratch free surface finish of 0.3 Ra µ. We have over 30 years experience inserting tungsten carbide or ceramic into titanium or stainless steel to minimize wear and improve operating efficiency in critical wear components.
Oberg has more than 60 years of precision manufacturing experience and over 500,000 hours dedicated to extremely close tolerance machining, high precision flat lapping, high speed 3-, 4-, and 5-axis milling, multi-axis and swiss turning, grinding and EDM capacity per year. This enables us to handle your prototype through continuous volume production requirements. We specialize in: titanium machining, stellite machining, Inconel machining, and grinding tungsten carbide.
State-of-the-Art Machining Technology
Our work cell environment features 3-axis milling, 4-axis milling, 5-axis milling with multi-axis turning and machining to provide accurate and quick turnaround of your complex designs. We also offer an advanced form of electrochemical grinding, Molecular Decomposition Process® (MDP) technology, which provides heat-free, burr-free grinding of very hard and thin materials. This MDP grinding technology will cut or grind difficult-to-machine materials 80% faster than conventional grinding. Our MDP grinding technology is capable of producing a surface finish of less than 1Ra µ.
Specializing in Difficult-to-Machine Materials
We developed specialized processes to machine and turn engineered plastics such as PEEK, Ultem (PEI), carbon and glass fiber composites, Ryton, Delrin, and other difficult-to-machine thermoplastics, plus tungsten carbide, beryllium copper, and exotic metals.
