An Engineer’s Guide to Resolving Manufacturing Feasibility Uncertainties

Unchecked manufacturing feasibility uncertainties can throw a mission-critical manufacturing project off course, increasing the risks of project delays, unexpected costs, and late time to market. However, when your engineering design process includes protocols intended to reduce uncertainties before proceeding to full production, your machining and grinding projects have a much greater chance of success.   This […]

How to Navigate Defense Manufacturing Project Challenges

Do your manufacturing challenges have you feeling like you're facing an unsurmountable climb? These six tips can help.

When managing a manufacturing project in any industry, challenges are unwelcome visitors that can put a damper on your schedule and budget. But, when you’re managing a manufacturing project for the defense industry, there’s a lot more at stake. With so much riding on the line, the pressure’s on to get it right.  In a […]

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 […]
