Oil and gas

Christopher Tool has serviced the very cyclical oil and gas industry for several decades. The many parts designed for this industry are designed for durability and wear. They are, therefore, made out of less-than-free machining steels such as high speed steels and case-hardened nitriding steels.

Many of the parts that we manufacture for this industry have complex geometries requiring extensive multi-axis machining. Ground gears and splines, with little or no backlash, are frequently featured on these parts.

The oil and gas industry is extremely competitive and puts a great deal of effort into assembling a supply chain that is committed to controlling prices. Christopher Tool continues to support initiatives that minimize waste and improve efficiency.
