Tri Tool Inc., Rancho Cordova, Calif., has established a high-production counterboring service to meet the demand for deep counterbore machining of steel catenary risers and critical pipeline needs in the Gulf of Mexico. Located in Houston, Tri Tool Services operates a high-speed system that can be mobilized for on-site service.
According to the company, the service delivers precise deep counterboring, rapid cycle times, and superior surface finishes.
