Hand scraping is a manual process that requires an individual to use a hand tool called a flat scraper to scrape metal from a machine tool surface in order to create contact points and oil grooves on surfaces that need to be mated together. By removing very thin layers of metals from a precision surface, you eliminate the high points created by the machining process and provide a true degree of flatness allowing two surfaces to smoothly glide across each other.
Machines that require scraping are those that contain boxed or cast-iron ways. We have worked on a wide variety of makes and models. Some of the most popular machines that require scraping are G&L Boring Mills, Makino Machining Centers, Okuma Machining Centers, OKK Machining Centers, Cincinnati Gilbert Boring Mills.
Normal wear and tear of production can cause a decrease in accuracy and performance. A noticeable decrease in accuracy or signs of wear on your machine means it is probably time to have it disassembled and rescraped to restore it to OEM Specification.
