Our Technologies Include:
- Shot Peening – The shot peening process imparts a beneficial compressive stress layer on the surface that improves the fatigue resistance and durability of the part. Shot peening is also effective in shaping the complex aerodynamic curvatures of the wing skins of commercial aircraft.
- Laser Peening – Our most technically advanced surface treatment service, for attaining the highest level of fatigue protection for mission critical components. This process induces beneficial compressive stresses that are four times deeper than can be achieved by traditional metal treatment processes.
- Engineered Coatings – We maintain a diversified portfolio of specialty coatings for protecting parts against degradation. Our thermal spray coatings & solid film lubricant provide thermal barrier protection, abrasion and erosion resistance plus high temperature oxidation and corrosion resistance. Finally, our parylene coatings provide functional properties of lubricity, moisture barrier resistance and biocompatibility.
- Material Testing & Analysis – Our analytical service portfolio includes failure analysis, as well as mechanical and chemical testing, to ensure the integrity of the design and manufacturing processes for critical metal, ceramic and composite components. Failure analysis also helps identify and solve surface treatment issues.
Our commitment to quality has earned the company numerous OEM approvals in the aerospace, automotive, chemical, marine, agricultural, mining and medical industries in addition to FAA, CAA, JAR and ISO 9001/9002 approvals as might be appropriate at individual facilities.
