On-site machining
Self Leveling Machines Africa (“SLM Africa”) is an onsite machining company that specialises in machining very large circular- and irregular- shaped surfaces on structural components. In partnership with DCD Marine, SLM Africa operates out of the port of Cape Town but can mobilise anywhere with its readily portable equipment.

The minimum diameter of the surface to be machined is 1,9m.  However there is virtually no size limit as the milling cutters are controlled by a scanning laser plane and are independent of any deflections which might occur in the portable machine frame. This allows large structures to be machined in a single set up with accuracies similar, if not better, than those achieved on major workshop machines.

General engineering
Industrial repair teams, including machinery and workshops, are available around the clock for breakdowns, annual shutdown, maintenance work and/or emergency assistance.

The machine shop is one of the most versatile in Africa, equipped to handle any size job including turning, milling, gear cutting, planning, boring, refurbishing, micro-welding and grinding. The workshops are staffed by personnel with substantial experience in providing innovative engineering solutions to meet difficult challenges.
