Arabian Oasis Industries LLC Begins New Trials on Dished Head Machinery

Share Article

Under the leadership of its director and technical consultant, Arabian Oasis Industries, LLC has started running trials on its dished head machinery.

Mr. Sugathan, general manager of Arabian Oasis Industries LLC (, announced today that following a recent request from a client to form some exceptionally thick heads, the company has decided to run trials on its unique dished head machinery by forming 100mm nominal thickness heads. Originally designed to form 80mm cold heads and hot heads up to 120mm, the company had previously decided to wait some time before using the machine for hot forming.

Under the guidance of Mr. Paul Lilley, previously general manager and now a director and technical consultant of Arabian Oasis Industries, the company has successfully formed two heads 4000mm in diameter from 100mm plate thickness.

”The trials went much easier than expected due to meticulous preparations and Mr. Lilley’s unrivalled knowledge of the process,” Mr. Sugathan says. “This represents yet another milestone to probably the most progressive company in the industry and it is without doubt the thickest head produced by this particular class of machine.”

Arabian Oasis Industries will almost certainly move to 120mm in the future, Mr. Sugathan says. However, that will not take place until Mr. Lilley decides the company’s experience with the current maximum thickness will ensure success.

As always, Arabian Oasis Industries will never offer its goods or services to the market unless the company is completely sure it can make a quality product conforming to specification requirements.

Arabian Oasis Industries is part of Oasis Investment company, of the holding company of the UAE-based Al Shirawi Group (
