Is Your Defense Part Material Too Difficult to Manufacture?

Does your defense manufacturing challenge feel like an unsolvable puzzle? We can help.

Tight tolerances, thin walls, complex configurations, and visibly perfect finishes are among the chief defense manufacturing challenges. Still, nothing can ground a project liftoff faster than a difficult-to-manufacture part material. While straightforward materials like aluminum and stainless steel generally pose few complications, dozens of other exotic alloys can create significant obstacles on the production floor, […]

Why DFM is Critical for Manufacturing Accurate and Cost-Effective Components

Design for manufacturing

We jumped at the chance to machine ultra-precision components for a brand-new transcranial doppler (TCD) technology that reveals cerebral blood flow data in real-time. We knew it could change the game for patients and providers when diagnosing, surveying, and monitoring stroke and other blood flow disorders. In discussing the project with our high-tech medical equipment […]
