Deep hole drilling (gun and ejector drilling) of steel shafts is often used to manufacture custom built hollow bar, where steel suppliers of hollow bar do not have the available sizes you may seek.

The deep hole drilling provides purpose built hollow bar. Deep hole drilling requires special tooling to produce long and accurate holes with a smooth finish.

Baker & Provan can also provide deep hole drilling for some unique applications as listed below:

  • On Centre deep hole drilling.
  • Off Centre deep hole drilling;
  • Deep holes from 4 mm diameter up to 155mm diameter.
  • Hole depths of up to 7 metres (drilling from both ends).
  • Through holes or blind holes (hole at one end only).
  • Obscure shapes, not just bars or shafts, can also be deep hole drilled.
  • Large work pieces can also be deep hole drilled.
  • Boring of internal diameters for large cylinders and shafts can also be achieved on our larger machines.
  • Any other machining requirements you have, we probably can assist you with our 12 CNC machines.



Baker & Provan has a diverse range of steel fabrication capabilities. The metal fabrication that Baker & Provan has completed over the many years includes:

  • steel fabrication;
  • stainless steel fabrication;
  • aluminium fabrication;
  •  bisalloy fabrication, and
  • other exotic steel fabrications

This metal fabrication capability is applied across sheet metal, small components, large and heavy fabrication and fabrication of mechanical process equipment. Baker & Provan also has a vast range of local and European welding procedures completed for various OEM.



Baker & Provan has been a defence supplier since the late 1980’s when it manufactured Slewing Arm Davits for the Royal Australian Navy (RAN). Since then Baker & Provan has designed and manufactured many of the cranes and winches fitted to RAN vessels to the point where we have the largest representation of any manufacturer of this class of equipment of products in service with the RAN

Our expertise enables us to undertake support, service, repair and overhaul on a range of marine equipment including Fin Stabilisers, Thrustors, Propulsion Systems, Capstans, Anchor Windlasses, Goods Lifts, Winches, Cranes, Davits and similar equipment.

Our NATA accreditation for load testing and inspection of lifting and lifted equipment meets the Royal Australian Navy requirements under “ABR 5195 - RAN lifting and securing equipment, testing & surveying requirements”, as well as other Australian Standards and DNV requirements.

This accreditation provides an additional level of assurance in our competence and the reliability of our survey, inspection, load testing and certification of cranes, davits and winches.  Furthermore, this provides Baker & Provan with the unique capability to effectively respond to equipment problems that are uncovered during survey and load testing. Ultimately, this leads to higher integrity of service and repairs, shorter turnaround times and reduced total cost.
