Earl is committed to using the latest technologies to improve quality and streamline processes. Below is a short list of just a few of the computer-controlled technologies that Earl employs throughout its business divisions to aid in ship repair and refurbishment.
Amada | Automated Punching System
Earl's computer-controlled, Amada punching cell does the metal fabrication work of multiple stand-alone machines, ensuring that throughput times are predictable and consistent - allowing for more accurate planning and production.
Wallace | 10" Pipe Bender
Earl Industries Wallace 10 Rotary Hydraulic Tube Bending Machine uses digital controls with an optical encoder to smoothly and effortlessly bend piping of various dimensions to within one-tenth of a degree accuracy.
Flow | High-Pressure Waterjet
Earl's Flow Waterjet Machining Center (WMC2) uses a high-pressure water jet (up to 60,000 psi) to cleanly and accurately cut sheet material. The Flow WMC2 allows us to create highly-accurate, taper-free parts from almost any material.
Flow | Robotic HydroCats
Earl uses revolutionary HydroCat surface preparation robots to quickly, safely and cleanly remove old coatings. The HydroCat attaches itself, using vacuum pressure, to any vertical, horizontal or overhead surface.
WIWA | DuoMix Plural Component Airless Coating Systems
Earl's DuoMix systems create perfect coating results - even under demanding conditions. These plural component airless coating systems set the standard for processing high viscosity, solvent-free two and three component coating materials.
EARL | Automatic Spray and Powder Coating Facility
Earl's state-of-the-art, fully-automated Spray and Powder Coating Facility consists of a 650 linear foot conveyor capable of washing, drying, powder coating and baking pieces up to 3 by 8 feet and 300 pounds in weight.
Mazak | Horizontal CNC Machining Center
Earl uses state-of-the-art Mazak Horizontal Machining Centers for high production applications of near net shape castings requiring limited metal removal.
Fadal | Vertical CNC Machining Centers
Earl's computer-controlled Fadal Vertical CNC machining centers allow multiple turning operations on the same part, and accurate, consistent fabrication of complex shapes.
Agie | Progress Wire EDM Center
Earl's leading-edge Agie Wire EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining) Center uses several hundred thousand micro sparks per second to gradually and precisely shape complex forms in metal.
