Custom Design

At Orca Marine Cooling Systems, our core competencies include designing and assembling custom marine and industrial cooling systems and heat exchangers, as well as individual components. Our combined industry knowledge and experience enable our team to take your project from concept and application requirements to a top-quality final product tailored to your needs. Whether you are looking for a one-off cooling system component or you are an OEM interested in custom production parts, we can design and assemble a solution based on your unique specifications.

Orca’s CNC Machining Capabilities

Computer numerical control (CNC) machining is ideal for manufacturing diverse parts and components with repeatable precision and enhanced speed. This versatile subtractive manufacturing method entails pre-programming lathes, mills, and related equipment, with a computer automating the manufacturing process. The equipment will carry out precise movements based on the programmed instructions to remove material from a workpiece and ultimately create a custom part. At Orca, we are equipped with state-of-the-art CNC technology in the form of mills and lathes, enabling us to give you the best achievable results in every production run.

Orca’s CAD Capabilities

To create the designs that the CNC machines follow to generate parts, manufacturers use computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software. Using CAD software, designers and engineers first build 2D or 3D schematics and digital models of your desired part. This model will be as realistic as possible, considering the dimensions of the end product and other project specifications. Then, the CAD file is interpreted by CAM software, which controls the machining equipment to produce a physical part in the model’s image using CNC machining or related manufacturing processes.

Our full CAD capability facilitates our engineering design services, and we utilize SolidWorks for 3D designs and AutoCad for 2D designs, depending on the needs of your project. These CAD drawings are highly compatible with our CAM software, allowing us to turn the design drawings and models of cooling systems, heat exchangers, and their components into a reality and ensure that every design translates accurately into a machined part.

Orca’s Engineering Expertise

When you reach out to Orca for custom cooling systems and heat exchangers, we’ll first connect you with our team of skilled engineers backed by over 40 years of experience.
